The need to conserve water is important. As our planet’s most important natural resource, water is precious. Here are four ways you can cut back on your water usage in your home at The Blackwood:
- Buy recycled paper. Did you know that it requires a lot of water to manufacture virgin paper? Opt for recycled paper products instead, and you'll save water as well as trees.
- Be diligent about turning off the faucet when not needed. We all get into the bad habit of leaving the water running while brushing our teeth, cleaning up, and doing the dishes. Try to be aware of the times when you can shut off the faucet, such as when sudsing and not rinsing; this will help save a great deal of water.
- Don’t play plumber. Attempting to fix a leak on your own may waste your water. Unless you are really handy, be sure to rely on professional help to prevent a small leak from consuming a lot of water.
- Give your plants a watering adjustment. When you water your houseplants less frequently, but more thoroughly, they will adjust. Over time, the roots will grow deeper and require less water overall.
