Countdown #29: Five top tips to save water

Georgina Wood gives us her top tips for saving water at home:

  1. Put the plug in the sink when washing your face or brushing your teeth
  2. Fill up the washing machine and/or the dishwasher each time they’re used
  3. Take shorter showers instead of baths
  4. Wash fruit and vegetable in a dish or pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
  5. Use a water butt to collect rainwater for the garden

How many litres of water do we use each day? Select the line below to find the answer!

150 litres
