Fresh water accounts for less than one percent of all the water on the planet, making it a very precious resource. It is the Achilles heel for every civilization, as there is no life where there is no water.

Slight modification of the toilet can also save water. I thought by now everyone was using low flow faucets.

Harrumph. I already do all of these things/have installed them.
Also, my garden only gets wateres with rain water, which is free ;)

I all ready do four of these and when my washer kicks off, I plan to buy a front loader.

Noted; good tips. Funny though, how the type of washing machine you use is determined by the country you live in. In the Netherlands and Germany it's very hard to find a top-loader, they were never 'fashionable', in Australia the top-loader is very slowly being replaced by front-loaders. And I gather that's also happening in the US.

Later model toilet-flushers have two buttons to flush (I think that's what Kit's referring to) which can save a lot of water too.
