DealDash Reduces Water Waste
It’s been a long hot summer this year, and we are experiencing quite a drought. Here are some helpful ways to save water.
Did you know that out of all of the water here on Earth only about 30% is good for drinking or household use? That’s right! When thinking about this small percentage it really encourages you to try to save water where ever you can. Every little bit helps.
My town and the towns around me are on a partial water ban – we can only water our lawns on Saturdays before 9AM and after 5PM. It really makes a huge difference in our water bill, so I know that we are saving water that way. Unfortunately some of the people in our neighborhood are cheating and still using their sprinklers. Does your town have a water ban in place? If you see your neighbors cheating and you are only friendly terms with them, I would suggest asking them in a very friendly way if they are aware that there is a water ban in place. They just might not be aware of it.
Another way to save water is to buy a rain barrel (or just a large plastic garbage bin) and collecting rain. It might not be raining much this summer, but it does rain occasionally, and you could use the rain that you are able to catch in your barrel for watering your plants and flowers instead of using town water. Just be sure to keep the lid on your barrel when it isn’t raining so you don’t attract mosquitos, and it will also keep you water from evaporating in the heat.
And finally, if you are a person who loves to take a bath save that for the weekend and take showers during the weekday instead. It will save a ton of water, and you will have a nice bath to look forward to on the weekend. As a treat for yourself for making the switch to showers during the week, get yourself some nice bubble bath for your weekend tub time, it will make it even more special.
