How to Water Less: VIDEO
TOP 10 things you can do to conserve water...
10. Check your pipes and faucets for leaks/problems (indoor and outdoor)
9. Don’t use your toilet as a trash can! Recycle what you can, compost non-animal food waste and throw away what you must, just not in the toilet
8. Turn off the tap when washing your face, brushing your teeth, or shaving
7. Use mulch/compost around your trees and plants to keep in moisture, save water and money. Organic Mechanics Planting Mix works great too!
6. Use Energy-efficient appliances such as low-flow toilets and EnergyStar washing machines
5. Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the street, your house, sidewalk, etc.
4. Buy a resuable water bottle/jug/container so that you can refill at the tap
3. Collect rainwater with a rain barrel for use in showering, laundry, cleaning, etc.
2. Use a potting soil that’s naturally water retentive, and doesn’t use chemicals to maintain moisture (we recommend our Premium Blend and Container Blend)
1. Teach others around you about water conservation! The kids of today are tomorrow’s future, so make sure they learn about water conservation. Practice it with them, so that they learn by example!
