Clever Ways to Conserve Water in the Bathroom

Flushing the toilet. Taking a shower. Brushing teeth. These are just a few of the tasks during our daily routines that require the use of water in the bathroom. Now dive a bit deeper and think about how much time you spend each day with the water running and multiply that by the number of people in your family who have similar routines. What does it add up to? Lots of water wasted.

While we can’t eliminate these tasks from our daily routines, we sure can reduce the amount of water we use each day. It starts with cutting down on the time spent showering and turning off the water while brushing your teeth. But you’ve probably heard that plenty of times before.

So, what else can you do to conserve water in the bathroom? Consider replacing your old fixtures with low-flow options. There are plenty of water-conserving shower heads, toilets and faucets to choose from in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors so finding one that matches your bathroom’s style and decor shouldn’t be a problem.

In addition to low-flow fixtures, a few more brilliant ways to conserve include rinsing razor blades in a cup of water rather than letting the faucet flow, putting a bucket underneath the spout while waiting for bath or shower water to warm up and using it to water plants, and waiting until you have a full load to run your washing machine.

Making a few small changes can go a really long way, so we encourage you to give a few of these tips a shot.
