Hello Green Action Team!
Welcome to the new Saluki Green Action of the week! We know that water bills are now on the rise. Luckily, there are many easy tricks to conserving water and keeping your bill low.
Did You Know: The average American shower uses 17.2 gallons (65.1 liters) and lasts for 8.2 minutes at average flow rate of 2.1 gallons per minute (gpm) (7.9 lpm)? Even having the water on while you brush your teeth can waste 4 gallons! (Source: http://www.home-water-works.org/indoor-use/showers)
Take Action Now: Use a timer to work on shortening your showers to conserve water. Start by shortening by 30 seconds, then 45 seconds, and so on!
