We are all well aware that drought is affecting many parts of the world. According to CNBC, “The megadrought in the U.S. West has produced the region’s driest two decades in at least 1,200 years.” In Southern California, where 7GA is based, we have been required to cut back our outdoor watering to just one day a week.
We all need to do our part to decrease water usage in our households, no matter how small the action might seem. So our tip of the week for this week is to find ways to reuse water around your home.
For example, leave a bucket in the shower to capture water as you wait for it to heat up. Then reuse that water for your plants. Other creative ways to reuse water in your home include reusing pasta water to water your plants, reusing water you used to wash your veggies to water your plants, and reusing water from old drinking bottles to water your plants.
This is one simple tip that can make a difference, but combined with other tips, it can make a real impact on your household water usage. Check out the links below for other tips 7GA has covered in past weeks about how to conserve water in your household:
