Tips to save water
[/text_output][icon_list][icon_list_item type=”adjust” id=”” class=”” style=””]
Turn off the taps
Leaving a tap running while brushing teeth uses 6 litres of water a minute. And by fixing a dripping tap you can save over 60 litres of water a week.
Boil what you need
Only boil as many cups of water as you need for your tea round – you’ll be saving money and energy.
Shower with less
It’s easy to linger in the shower when you’re sleepy in the morning – four-minute timers can help. And switching to an efficient shower head will allow you to lather up in less water.
Save up your dirty clothes
Washing a full machine load of clothes uses less water and energy than two half-loads. This means lower bills as well.
Steam your veggies
As well as using less water than boiling, steaming retains more nutrients. If you do boil, try adding the water used as a tasty stock to soups. Or let it cool and use it to water house or garden plants.
You can cut water use by 33% by watering plants manually instead of using automatic sprinklers.
