articles about saving Template:H2O

The planet has limited amounts of water (Template:H2O) available. Here are some things you can do to conserve water.

  1. Take shorter showers. You can also turn the water off while you're soaping off in the shower.
  2. Get a low-flush toilet, or you can put a plastic jug filled with water in the back part of the toilet, and it will create a similar effect.
  3. Wash dishes in a basin, and don't leave the water running.
  4. Recycle

There's also more complex (and fun!) ways of saving water, like creating a greywater system.

Tap it out: Turn the water off when brushing your teeth
Plug it up: Plug the sink to wash the dishes
Stop the drip: Stop a faucet from leaking
Take a 2 minute shower
  • PUT A PLUG IN IT: When washing dishes, turn off the water while you scrub.
  • NOTE THIS: Buy 100% recycled paper notebooks. Believe it or not, it takes a huge amount of water to make new paper from trees!
  • WATER SAVER: While waiting for the water to heat up when you wash your hands or face, Save the cold water in a container and use it to water your plants or for cleaning.
  • TAPPED OUT: Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
  • STOP THE DRIP: Fix a leaky faucet in your home or school.
  • SUPERVISE THE SPRINKLER: Make sure the sprinkler is turned off during the hottest part of the day, when most of the water is wasted through evaporation.
  • FLUSH NOT: Flush the toilet less often by not using it as a wastebasket.
  • POWER SHOWER: Take charge of reducing your shower time - and the shower times of your entire family - by 2 minutes per shower. (Use a timer if necessary)
