If you can focus on the faucet, you can be a little more eco-friendly and save yourself a little money on your next water bill at the same time. It’s a win-win!
- Take shorter showers – an average shower uses 5 gallons of water a minute – shave off two minutes and save 10 gallons!
- Trade to a low-flow shower head – it can decrease water consumption 40% or more and save you $90-$130 a year on your water bill
- Try a rain barrel – it can save an average household 1,300 gallons of water and helps control stormwater runoff that can wash pollutants into rivers and streams
