Tips and Tricks
Fresh water is a finite resource. In addition to keeping our waterways clean, we also try to reduce water usage in general. Companies, businesses, and municipalities all have a responsibility to minimize their water consumption, but there are also a number of ways someone can conserve water in everyday ways.
- Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth.
- Be sure to repair any leaks or dripping faucets.
- Only water gardens or lawns during the cool morning or evening hours.
- Only wash full loads of laundry.
During the month of July, try out different ways to reduce your water use. By July 31st, we encourage you to submit 3 new ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us on social media to inspire others to conserve water around their home.
Here is one of ours: “I keep an empty pitcher next to the kitchen sink and I pour any leftover water — from drinking cups, the tea kettle, boiled noodles, etc. — into it and use that to water my indoor and outdoor plants.” -Melanie, ORK Staff
