Here are some tips you can get started on today:
1 – Fill a bowl with water to put the dirty dishes: Instead of always having the water running, simply fill a bowl with water in advance and place the dishes there. While washing it, you will notice that the task has been made easier and you’re saving.
2 – If you have a dishwasher, use it only when it’s full: Let dishes accumulate enough to fill the dishwasher and this way you’re saving water and electricity.
3 – In the bath, don’t forget to turn off the water while soaping: Did you know that a 5-minute shower wastes between 25 and 100 liters of water?
4 – While waiting for the water in the bath to warm up, store the cold water in a bowl and reuse it to water the plants or wash the dishes: It’s so simple to do, and it costs nothing.
5 – Always make sure that the tap is closed properly after use: The rush of everyday life sometimes prevents us from noticing the details, and this is one of them. Be conscious!
6 – Avoid unnecessary discharges, remember that the toilet is not a trash can: We’ve all done this at least once and if we think about it, it doesn’t make any sense.
It never hurts to remember the little things we can do to help the planet.
