  3. Reduce laundry – Reusing clothes and towels and waiting to run the washer when you have a full load will save.
  4. Collect water – If you have plants, when you rinse your fruits and vegetables you can collect the water to use water to feed your plants instead of wasting it down the drain.
  5. Only flush for #2 – Flushing an older toilet can use as much as 20 liters to flush every time it’s flushed. New toilets use about 5 liters per flush.
