Water is one of our planet's most important resources, so conserving it is important. Not only that, taking it easy on the tap means you'll have a lower water bill, too. Here are four water conservation tips to keep in mind while at your apartment at Meetinghouse:
- Only run the water when you're using it. Most people are guilty of keeping the tap running while doing the dishes, brushing their teeth, or washing their faces. When you're not rinsing, turn off the water so you don't have to use as much.
- Let a professional fix your leak. If you have a leak and can't handle the job on your own, call a plumber to solve the problem and prevent you from wasting more water.
- Use recycled paper. A significant amount of water is needed to make regular paper, so opt for paper products that are more environmentally friendly.
- Take a good look at when and how you water your plants. If you water your plants just enough, you don't have to water them as frequently. As your plants flourish, the roots will grow deeper and they'll will require less water.
