Conserve Energy – Don’t waste water!

Delivering water to your tap and heating it uses energy. With all of the extra cooking and dishwashing many will be doing next week, take a moment to think about how you can make every drop count.

🙂 Let very dirty pots and pans soak before washing them.

🙂 Instead of letting water run down the drain while waiting to get warm water, collect the cold water. Use it for watering houseplants, refilling pet water dishes, pouring outdoors to replenish the garden.

🙂 Keep a bucket under the kitchen sink to make collecting cold water convenient. Think of the upper body and core workout you are getting when you use, rather than waste, this life sustaining resource.
