Water-Saving Tips For Summer 2014 With Sweety High!
Summer doesn't officially start until June 21, but the hot weather has convinced us otherwise here at Sweety High! During the summer it's as important as ever to conserve water, so we've compiled a list of Water-Saving Tips for summer 2014!
Will you save water with us?
- Keeping clean doesn't need to be a water waster! Don't let the water run when you're lathering your hands or when you're brushing your teeth. You can save even more water by turning off the faucet when you shampoo and soap up in the shower. Only let the water run when you need it!
- Shorten showers by just a couple of minutes and you can save up to 5 gallons of water every time you shower. Over the month, that can add up to 150 gallons! And bathing just isn't an option when you're trying to save water!
- You don't need to use a clean towel everyday! If you properly hang your towels to dry, your towel only needs to be replaced every week, cutting down on towel washing!
- Wash your dark and colorful clothes in cool water! It saves energy, as well as water, and will help your clothes stay bright and vibrant!
- Always be sure to tightly turn off your faucets. Not only are leaky faucets annoying, but even a slow drip can add up to lost gallons of water each and every day!
- Trying to beat the heat? You can still play in the sprinkler, as long as the sprinkler is doing double-time watering a lawn in need! And if you need to give your pup a bath, slip the tub and head outside for additional lawn soaking!
- If you're going to splash around in the pool, keep your splashes in the pool! Water that leaves the pool evaporates quickly, leading to waste!
- Urge your parents to water their outdoor plants either early in the morning or late in the afternoon to prevent evaporation. You can also have them plant succulents, which consume little water but make for creative and beautiful gardens!
- Buy a water bottle! By using a bottle instead of using various cups to drink out of every day, you save water on washing dishes!
