Habitual water saving comes easy with practice. Here are some simple conservation techniques you can implement:
- While brushing your teeth or lathering your skin, minimize water consumption by simply turning off the faucet between uses.
- While the faucet is on, try to use the water for at least two purposes, such as washing hands and presoaking dishes in a basin.
- While waiting for water to heat up at the tap, collect it in a vessel and find other uses for it, like watering plants.
- Used water, called greywater, can be collected from dishwashing, laundry, and bathing, and used for watering houseplants or gardens. (For more info, see Access.)
