How You Can Save 60 Gallons of Water Today!

My favorite environmental subject is water conservation. Why? Spite. I used to have this roommate who would take hour-long showers, and anything I can do to make her look bad is pleasing to me. My motives may not be pure, but at least I’m fighting for a good cause. Right?

  • Take a 5-Minute Shower Instead of a 10-Minute Shower
    Savings: 12.5 gallons

  • Put a bottle filled with gravel in your toilet tank.
    Savings: 7.5 gallons
