Pre-rinse: Pre-rinse the plates with just a little water to get the food to soften up. Either fill the sink or basin with about an inch of water to soak the dishes or add a little water on the plate and set aside on a flat surface. *Tip - If you are soaking in a basin, when you’re done you can use that water in your garden instead of pouring it down the drain.
Two-sided sink (or basin): Next step is to set up your sink. You will need to create a two-sided sink (if you don’t have one) which is easy to do with wash basins. One side will have hot water for the washing and one side will have warm water for rinsing. *Tip - when water is heating up, save the water to use in your garden or for coffee or tea later.
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect all living things seven
generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
