Conserve Our Natural Resources
Conserving our resources and a green movement are really taking hold in America right now. We are investing in green energy, switching to energy efficient light bulbs, and making efforts to conserve our resources.
The one area of the home that wastes the most water is the bathroom. We use water in the sink when we brush our teeth, flush the toilet, and take showers or baths. One easy method to conserve water at the sink is to turn it off. Many people let the water run when they brush their teeth. Get your toothbrush wet and turn it off, do not let it run the entire time that you are brushing. The same goes with washing your hands. You can turn off the water while you lather your hands with soap and can turn it back on to rinse it off.
In the shower, water can be saved by turning it off too. After getting yourself wet, turn off the shower, soap up, shampoo your hair, and then turn the water back on to rinse off.
Low Flush Toilets
A popular method to save water with the toilet is to buy a low flush toilet. While this does help to save water, it is not the most environmentally friendly way to do this. A new toilet needs to be fired in an oven for five hours at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit! Think about how long you could heat your home for that. Buying a new toilet also means that you are now putting your old toilet into a landfill when there is nothing wrong with it except that it uses too much water.
A better alternative to buying a new low flush toilet is to buy dual flush toilet kit to save water. These inexpensive water saving toilet kits are inexpensive and easy to install. The water saving toilet kits fit on 90% of the toilets out there and they can save the average family thirty gallons of water a day. They have handles that can be pressed to the left or to the right. Press it to the left for fluids and to the right for solids.
It is becoming easier and more affordable to make our houses green homes. So if you haven’t started to make efforts to conserve resources, isn’t it time you get started today?
