5 Ways To Save Water In The New Year

New Year’s resolutions are fun to make but hard to maintain. They tend to come from a place inside us telling us what we should do. Sometimes they make us feel like we misbehaved and we need to do better next year, giving us a feeling of guilt. Feeling guilty about not saving water isn’t going to get us to reach our water saving goals. Saving water is critical to our future and our children and grandchildren’s future too. If that is not motivating enough, what will motivate you to change? The reality for most is the threat of doom does not kick us into water savings mode either. I believe the best way to create change is to keep your goals simple, measurable and be accountable. Below are 5 simple, measurable ways to save water today and throughout the year. This takes care of the simple and measurable, now find a partner to share your savings goals and results with and have instant accountability.

1. Use one glass for your drinking water each day, or refill a water bottle. This will cut down on the number of glasses to wash.

2. Don’t run your garbage disposal – instead compost – this saves water and makes your garden happier.

3. Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean driveways or sidewalks.

4. Spend a minute less time in the shower each time you shower and you will save hundreds of gallons of water over the year.

5. When you do your laundry make sure the water level selection matches the size of your load.
