Water-using appliances such as dish and clothes washers are typically rated for water as well as energy usage. We always recommend when purchasing an Energy Star certified washer that can dramatically reduce a household's water use.

Lisa B. from Bryan

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.

Jenn R. from Richardson

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.

Linda S. from San Antonio

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.
