Here are some tips that will let you save energy, water and money as well as protect the environment at the same time:

Get a new toilet.

We’re serious! Old toilets use around 3.5 gallons of water per flush. A huge waste of money. You’re literally flushing down money, considering modern toilets use less than 1.5 gallons. It’ll save you money in the long run, but also protect the environment by not wasting so much water.

Install low flow showerheads.

You can use about 50% less water by installing these nifty little things, and that translates to big savings on your water bill in the long run. Best of all, they’re adjustable, so you can always switch to high flow when you need to rinse, and they’re extremely cheap.

Smart usage of washing machines.

Whenever you’re buying a washing machine, consider that front loaders generally use less water and energy than the top loading variety. Washing with cold water helps as well, since top loaders use about 90% energy just to heat the water. Lastly, always run the appropriate full load size for your machine.

Fix leaky toilets and drippy faucets.

A faucet continuously dripping once per second for a full year wastes approximately 3000 gallons of water, and a leaky toilet can waste a whopping 73.050 gallons of water. Fix leaks and dripping faucets as soon as you detect them.

Tweak your water heater.

Most water heaters come preset at 140 degrees, and that’s scalding hot. Turn it down to 120 degrees instead, and not only will you save 10% on your bills, but the lower temperature also reduces mineral buildup in your plumbing and water tank.
