None of these suggestions are groundbreaking or unheard of; rather, the tips we read in Natural Home's article Lower Your Flow: 10 Ways to Save Water at Home are just good reminders that the small, seemingly unimportant actions we can make can add up to great, positive benefits.

Our favorite tips from Natural Home's article Lower Your Flow: 10 Ways to Save Water at Home:

  1. Wash only full loads of laundry, or use the appropriate water-level or load-size selection. Wash in cold water.
  2. Keep drinking water in the refrigerator instead of letting the faucet run until the water is cool.
  3. Scrape, rather than rinse, dishes before loading into the dishwasher. Wash only full loads.
  4. Repair all leaks. A leaky toilet can waste 200 gallons a day. To test your toilet, put a few drops of food coloring in the tank. Wait a few minutes. If coloring appears in the toilet bowl, you have a leak.
  5. Keep your yard healthy by dethatching, mulching and using natural fertilizers.
