The squeeze is on. The cost of living is up – we’re even cancelling our TV subscriptions – and we’re doing all we can to save an extra pound. The good news is that being conservative with our water, gas and electricity is also good for the environment!
So, for the sake of our monthly bills and a greener world, have a look at these basic tips on how to save water in your bathroom:
- Don’t let taps drip: to limit avoidable water wastage.
- Plug first: adjust the temperature of the water as your bath fills rather than running water down the drain as it heats.
- Shorter showers: a one-minute reduction in shower time delivers a 10% saving in water usage—a small amount that adds up over a month or year.
- Don’t leave water running when not in use: brushing teeth, washing your face or shaving.
- Hang towels to dry (outdoors preferably): rather than washing after each use.
- Install water saving/eco-friendly shower heads: that give the feeling of high pressure but use less water.
- Install a dual flush toilet: which gives you the option of a half flush (when pushing a single button) and a full flush when pushing both buttons.
- Check for and fix leaks: even a small drip can be wasteful.
- Make a full bath a treat: which means less water and more saving.
- Conserve water: and use it to water the plants, clean or even flush the toilet.
Not all of these top tips will be practical in the moment (like upgrading your toilet or shower head) but most of them are habits easily created if we are diligent about changing our behaviour. Small changes make a big difference—especially if we all try!
