One of the easiest yet most important contributions we as a family can make to the environment is saving water. This is so easy, and within the household can be done in a variety of ways.
We make use of a lot of our grey water. The water that runs while you are waiting for hot water is gathered in a container and used to water pot plants.
Washing machine water can be easily diverted to water our lawn and water from the shower collected in a bucket to carry out later for our plants.
With water getting so expensive these days it also helps our hip pocket to save water in these ways.
