    Best thing I ever did was get a rain barrel. I have a lot of flowers and shrubs that I water. I’ve saved so much money by collecting and watering with rain water. And you get get really nice ones for under $100!

    We planted low-mo grass too, just about a week ago. It’s been raining so I’m eager to see if it takes off! Should be just a few more days to go! Also, you can use soapy dishwater to water plants. Better yet, use an eco-friendly soap while you’re at it.

    My water saving tip is to drink from the tap – don’t buy bottled. Depending on where you are – our water is great.
    Also switch to a low flow shower head and toilet.

    My water saving tip came from realizing how much water we wasted when bathing my daughter in the tub. So we purchased one of the baby/toddler tubs and fill that up instead! Now we’re only using just enough water to bathe her instead of so much excess.

    Love to save money!!! And this is a Really GREAT looking Showerhead!!
    I have a few tips on how WE save water in our house. We live in GA and we are in the middle of a BAD drought!
    1. HUBBY does this. He gets in the shower, gets wet, Turns the water OFF, soaps up, and then turns the water back on to rinse off! (NOT ME! no how no way!)
    2. I take shorter, way shorter showers!!!
    3. Put a brick in the back of the toilet tank! less water to fill the potty!
    4. STOP washing your car. A filthy car is a BADGE of HONOR IN GA!
    5. (can I say this..) On Sat. Mornings take a (short) shower with our Honey!!! (I’ve been married 25 years! wink wink)

    I think my best tip is to teach my children by example, and take short showers, cnserve water at all times, and generally stay on top of them until it’s ingrained in their brains that saving water is vitally important. I also make sure my husband fixes any drips or leaks.

  64. Laney
    April 29, 2009 at 9:40 pm (8 years ago)

    I follow my boyfriend around and make sure the taps are really off-so I guess my tip would be that you make sure everyone else puts effort into making sure there aren’t drips/leaks!

    was full loads of clothes because It’s most efficient to run only full loads in your washing machine. If you must wash a partial load, adjust the water level to match the size of the load.

    We stop the water from running while we are brushing our teeth. We catch rain water to water the garden. This might sound gross to some but if we only wet the toilet we don’t flush as often. I only run the dishwasher if it is full and the same for the washing machine. We sometimes shower together.

    I hope it doesn’t matter that someone else already took my idea cause I’m using it anyway. I always shut off the water when brushing teeth. It’s funny cause I started doing it cause I couldn’t hear the kids (if they were talking to me in the mornings) over the sound of the running water and then the magic 40 watt light bulb went on over my head and I said “Hey! That’s saving water!!” So I started everyone doing it. I also never wash a load of clothes if it’s not a full load. I dont care if you ARE out of underwear, it’s not a full load yet (lol). And I try not to run the kitchen water needlessly when washing dishes.
    I have already tweeted and am a subscriber. I will blog about the contest too. But above all else…my shower head started to crack in the center this weekend and OMG(!!) do I need a shower head. So this has got me written all over it. No really, I saw my name on that picture up there. :)

    I’ve taught my kids to not let the water run while brushing their teeth and have had to limit their shower lengths. This alone has done wonders because they sure can use a lot of water!

3Pingbacks & Trackbacks on BBG – Evolve Showerhead Giveaway

  1. We collect rainwater to water the deck plants and are big about turning off the faucets when not necessary!!!!!

  2. We limit our shower time. That’s hard with 3 girls. I also shave my legs w/out the shower running too, no wasting water there!
