What Works for Me Wednesday: Conservation

Have you heard about Earth Hour? Are you going to participate? I am, and we are planning the how.

We are a pretty “green” house and for the next 4 weeks I will talk about going green.

This week lets talk water. It is a necessity of life after all. So how can we save on the cheap and be green? It is about changing habits. 

Here are some ways we have done it here in the city:

1.Dont run water while brushing teeth

2. Installed low usage shower head and faucet. Here in Toronto you can purchase a kit from the city for $15.

3. We don’t have a dishwasher but when we did we didn’t prewash dishes.  Now we don’t leave water running to rinse.

4.We only wash FULL loads of clothes.

Outside:

1.We sweep our walk we don’t hose it.

2. We water roots not leaves in the garden.

3. We don’t water our grass.

These are just a few ways that we conserve and save money too.

Now I am off to Rocks in My Dryer to see what is working elsewhere this week.
