We like to post reminders before Thanksgiving about conserving water, since that is a big cooking day for many. The following tips are directly from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are posted on DrinkTap's Water Conservation webpage:
- When cooking, peel and clean vegetables in a large bowl of water instead of under running water.
- Fill your sink or basin when washing and rinsing dishes.
- Only run the dishwasher when it's full.
- Only use the garbage disposal when necessary (composting is a great alternative).
Check out DrinkTap's Water Conservation webpage for other conservation ideas for around the house.
