Water-Saving Tips

With a heatwave in progress, as a Sustainable Crediton supporter we realise that saving resources, such as water, is second-nature to you so here are some simple tips for saving water:

  • use a water butt
  • re-use washing-up or bath water on the garden
  • let the lawn look a little brown for a while
  • don't overfill the kettle
  • turn taps off when brushing teeth
  • put a bottle of water in the fridge to avoid drawing unnecessary water until a cool temperature is reached
  • have fixed any leaking taps
  • take showers rather than baths using a modern energy-efficient shower head
  • only take a three minute shower which is more than enough time.

There are lots of useful ideas on this topic in numerous websites - just Google 'water saving tips'.
