In honour of Earth day, we thought we’d let you know of some water-saving tips you might find useful:
Shower bucket - Instead of letting the water pour down the drain while you wait for your shower to warm up, put a bucket under the faucet. You can use the water for flushing the toilet or watering your plants.
Repair your leaks - Fixing dripping faucets, outdoor hose bibbs and running toiliets can mean big water savings.
Select efficient fixtures - Aerating your faucets, investing in a low-flow toilet, choosing efficient shower heads, and opting for ENERGY STAR rated appliances can add up to big water savings.
Hand-washing a lot of dishes? - Fill up your sink with water, instead of letting it run the entire time you’re scrubbing.
Wash Rover outdoors - That way, you’re watering your yard while you’re cleaning your pup. Just make sure that the soap you’re using is environmentally safe!
Water fact: The average Canadian household uses 329 liters of water per day - that’s second only to the US, and twice as much as Europeans!
