This comes straight off the Georgia Department of Community Affairs poster where I used to pay my water bill at City Hall:
1. Check your home for water leaks.
2. Don’t leave water running when you brush your teeth!
3. Only wash clothes and dishes on full loads.
4. Take shorter showers. Replace shower heads with ultra low-flo version.
5. Install faucet aerators.
6. Never pour water down the drain when there may be another use for it.
7. install toilet displacement devices to reduce the amount of water used for each flush.
8. Keep a jug or pitcher of water in the fridge for your next cool drink.
9. Start composting instead of using the garbage disposal.
10. Don’t use the toilet as a trash can.
I had to look up number 5 because I had no idea what it meant. I like the idea of number 8, as I don’t usually do that. And who does number 10? That would be EXPENSIVE!
What are your strong numbers? Which ones were new to you?
