Step 1: Ask yourself if you really want water Only ask restaurant servers to bring you a glass of water and refill it if you're planning to drink it. Step 2: Check your toilet Make sure your toilet isn't leaking by putting a drop of food coloring in the tank. If it shows up in the bowl a few minutes later and you haven't flushed, you have a leak. Tip A leaky toilet can waste 200 gallons of water a day! Step 3: Keep cold water on hand If you drink tap water at home, keep a jug of it in the fridge so you don't have to run the water until it's cold. Step 4: Recycle veggie water Wash fruits and vegetables in a basin rather than under running water, then use that water, and any you used to boil vegetables, to water your plants. In addition to saving water, you'll give them extra nutrients. Or save boiled veggie water to start a soup stock. Tip If you have a dehumidifier, use the water on plants. Step 5: Don't be lazy! Sweep steps, driveways, and sidewalks rather than hosing them off. Step 6: Keep a water spray bottle on the sink Keep a small spray bottle of water on your bathroom sink. Instead of running the faucet, use it to wet your toothbrush before applying paste. Think of how much water you can save with a few spritzes. Did You Know? The average American wastes up to 30 gallons of water every day.
