Water Reduction Tips

01 Go Native!

Plant native vegetation and grasses instead of water-thirsty lawns.

02 Reduce Food Waste

Buy and consume what you need, and enjoy those leftovers!

03 Watch your waredrobe

Purchase fewer items and wash clothes only when needed.

04 Turn off lights and electronics

This saves electricity, which may be hydro-powered, and reduces replacement/repurchases.

05 Go Vegan/Vegetarian

Make the switch or try a plant-based diet on occasion. Food production, especially meats, is 50% of the average omnivore’s water footprint.

06 Turn it off!

Don’t run faucets – and waste water – when not needed!
