Water, Water Everywhere…

Tips for saving water for the planet and putting money in your pocket!

1.) Filter your tap water

Install a water filter, like the PUR Faucet Mount Water Filtration System on your kitchen tap. In just one year, it can provide the equivalent of up to 3,200 bottles of water. Think landfills!


Save water by taking shorter showers, or turning off the sink when you shave or brush your teeth. FIX ALL LEAKY FAUCETS AND TOILETS.


Try doing your laundry in cold water, with a detergent like Shaklee Fresh Laundry Concentrate (Biodegradable, hypoallergenic, no phosphates). You’ll save up to 80% in total energy savings. Do only FULL loads of laundry to save on water and energy!


Using the dishwasher is actually better for the planet than washing dishes by hand.  The average energy-efficient dishwasher uses just 4 gallons of water per cycle, saving nearly 5,000 gallons per year compared with hand washing – as well as $40 in energy costs and 230 hours of washing time, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Try Shaklee Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate  with no phosphates or chlorine and biodegradable.

  1. Hey! Thanks for the tips. I do most of them, but did not know it was the better way! Yea! I am still working my my Going Green page for my web site… just slow going. I wish I have just 5 more hours in each day!

  2. Another great water conservation tip is to install a HOT WATER LOBSTER Instant Hot Water Valve! Go green by installing it under the sink farthest form your water heater. You’ll have instant hot water throughout your entire home. It’s a great way to save water that’s normally wasted down the drain while waiting for hot water. The savings in water, energy, and time easily recoups the initial $179.95 purchase price! More impressive is the convenience of instant hot water!

    The Hot Water Lobster uses no electricity and is pump free, so it creates no noise. It is made in the U.S.A., has a 10-year warranty, and can be easily installed in under 10 minutes.
