1. For drinking, save money and reduce the recycling overload by kicking the bottled water habit. Ounce for ounce, it’s more expensive than gasoline! Use water straight from the tap (yes, it’s safe to drink!), or buy a filter for your faucet or a refillable pitcher with a filter.
2. Buy a reusable container for taking water on-the-go.
3. When cooking, avoid running water for cleaning vegetables, fruits and other foods. Fill your sink with water, and soak/wash them in bulk.
4. Give your dishes a quick rinse right after eating, to avoid caked on foods, that take a lot of extra water (and soap) later on (with or without a dishwasher!).
