Why is water conservation important? Because water isn't as abundant a resource as we think it is. Only about .008% of all the water present on the planet is available for human consumption.
There are numerous water conservation tips for you to act on:
Implementing a towel and sheet re-use program saves not only water but also energy, soap, and labor. The combined financial savings alone makes it worthwhile, but the water savings is like putting money in the bank; you'll have water available for your use, at a reasonable price, in the future.
Low-flow toilets are better than ever. Not only do they flush better, but they also come in dual flush styles so you can save even more water. Waterless urinals also save a great amount of water.
Flow restrictors have also improved. You no longer have to settle for the pins-and-needles shower that was once the hallmark of showerhead flow restrictors. You can even get massaging showerheads that are flow restricted to 2 gallons per minute.
Planting your garden with xeric plants gives you the possibility of lush, green gardens that normally don’t require more water than falls from the sky. You will save money and water while impressing your guests with beautiful gardens.
