Around the house
Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.When buying a new clothes washer, consider purchasing a water saving model. Water saved up to 40 gallons per load.Insulate hot water pipes where possible to avoid long delays (and wasted water) while waiting for the water to run hot. When building a new home, keep the distance short between the water heater and showers and other places that hot water is used.
