Green Your Water Use: Faucets

Turn off the tap when brushing teeth Today on the Green Life, we're celebrating Earth Day. To protect one of our planet's most precious resources, this week's tips focus on water conservation.

Tip #3: Turn Off the Faucet

Want to save about 3,000 gallons of water per year? It's as easy as turning off the tap when you brush your teeth or shave. Once you've got that down, look for creative ways to use less water, such as washing fruits and vegetables in a bowl instead of running the tap. You might be surprised by how many water-saving opportunities you'll find!
