It takes 2 minutes for the hot water to reach the faucet in my bathroom. Instead of wasting the water, I place a watering can under the faucet and collect 2 gallons of water. I use it to water my plants.

In the summer we use a lot of towels at the pool. I just hang them to dry and reuse rather than washing after each use.

We try to find creative ways to recycle our water and cola bottles. We've made bird feeders, plant stands, art projects for the kids and planters for new plants.
