You've heard that turning off the faucet when brush your teeth conserves water, but how often do we actually do it?
The United Nations has been celebrating World Water Day since 1993, using it as an opportunity to discuss the importance of water in our world, raise awareness of those who don't have clean water and educate those who do on how to manage it. The 2019 theme is "Leaving no one behind."
March 22 marks World Water Day, and what better time to refresh our understanding of the best ways to save water (and save on our water bill) around the house?
It's time to finally get around to fixing that leak.
The EPA's water savings calculator says that a family of four could save 6,8000 gallons of water each year by replacing leaking appliances. That's 170 loads of laundry!
You can also save $70 a year by buying a water efficient shower head.
