Today is Earth Day! Tips to Conserve Water

Today’s the day we celebrate our planet, Earth! First started in 1970, Earth Day has grown into a worldwide celebration and reminder of the important environmental protections. Our planet is at a turning point. Over the next 25 years, the right changes will be the catalyst for dramatic changes in the environment, the fight against carbon emissions and climate change. In the spirit of conservation and environmental awareness, here are some tips for embracing our world.

  • Go around the house and inspect each faucet and shower for dripping or leaking.
  • Test for leaks in your toilet. Put a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait a few minutes, then check the toilet bowl. If you see color in the bowl, it means that the toilet is leaking.
  • Your water heater should never be higher than 120 degrees. Lowering the setting will help reduce the amount of energy used.
  • Check the age of your water heater. If it’s older than 11 years old, consider upgrading to a new, energy-efficient model.
  • Inspect the water supply hoses to your dishwasher, ice maker and washing machine. If those hoses have bulges or cracks, they should be replaced.
  • Run your dishwasher and washing machine only when they’re full.
  • Water the lawn or garden during the coolest part of the day.
  • Don’t let the water run while shaving or while brushing your teeth.

These are some ideas to help get you started. The more awareness of our water usage we bring to Earth Day, the more we can help keep our planet a nice place to live!
