Here on the Community there have been fantastic discussions about increasing our homes' energy efficiency - including switching to LED
lights, debating about electric boilers
, and what temperature we use to clean our clothes
Saving water can also be a fantastic way to save energy, reduce your carbon footprint
- and may become increasingly important in the face of hotter Summers!
Of course we're all at home a lot more at the moment due to COVID-19 so small, simple ways of reducing water consumption could see an even bigger impact right now 👍
These include turning the tap off while you brush your teeth, fixing any dripping taps around the house (these can waste up to 15 litres of water
a day🤯) and investing in a water-efficient shower head.
It doesn't just have to be indoors either - as we move into Summer and spend more time outside, going back to basics and using a watering can
instead of a hose is a quick and efficient way to instantly reduce water waste. 🌸
Have you found ways of reducing your water usage?
It'd be great to share any tips and tricks to save water and with it, save energy 🙂.
