How Much Water Is Your Home Wasting? [Infographic]

From cooking to cleaning and manufacturing to shipping, humans consume excessive amounts of the earth's most precious resource. Since only 1% of the earth's water is available for human consumption, we need to reduce the amount of water we use.

There are other means to save water that don't involve putting low performance faucets and shower heads or 'chokes-a-lot' toilets in. Insulating pipes, fixing tap leaks, and cleaning existing fixtures (a vinegar bath can upgrade a weak shower head or sink aerator) can often save a good bit of water. When changing out a clothes washing machine, a front loader usually uses 1/2 to 1/4 the water per wash than a top loader, plus reduces wear on the clothes.

We waste too too much.2 sons live with us and one of them will shower in middle of night, as I am on at him to shorten time in shower ... I wouldn't mind, but he has head shaved...Also, I am always washing my hands esp. while cooking. Now, we have small grandchildren visiting and do they love washing their hands.

Good article. Water is a precious commodity and it's high time we started treating it as such.
