Make sure that you turn off all taps tightly any time you turn them off.
If you accidentally drop ice cubes, don’t throw them in the sink. Drop them in a house plant instead.
Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
Cook your food in as little water as possible. This also helps it retain more nutrients.
Reuse leftover water from cooked or steamed foods to start a nutritious soup, it’s one more way to get eight glasses of water a day.
If your dishwasher is new, cut back on rinsing. Newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.
