Home Water Conservation

Wasting water is something we all need to worry about; the world’s supply of freshwater is depleting faster and faster. But thankfully, there’s a plus side to the issue; by investing in smarter, water-saving choices in our homes, we can all save money as well as our most important natural resource.

I’m one of the many people who feel guilty for splurging on that extra five minutes in the shower, but I always had the feeling that this was, literally, a drop in the bucket of our bigger problem. This infographic tell us about a more convenient way to regulate water usage in your home: by replacing your old fixtures and appliances with low-flow models.

Excessive water consumption is a way of life in most households. Take a look at the infographic below to see how you measure up against most US households and how we can all make a change for the good.

As a society we are often so far removed from personal responsibilty for our resources it's easy to not take full care. My household water is treated on site and goes into the garden, yes ALL of it. Recently the system broke down and I've had to walk the shower, sink, laundry and kitchen water out to my plants by hand. It certainly makes you more frugal the more you are personally engaged with the collection or dispersion of the water!
