  1. Jana Blackwood says:

    I am currently using low flow shower heads.

  2. Teri says:

    I save water from the sky via my rainwater collection system (used mostly for the garden) and I save water from the tap by filtering it and never buying bottles of water from the quicky mart.

  3. Sylvia Jayne says:

    I have two rain barrels in my garden that I use for watering.

  4. Heidi Rantala says:

    I shower less.

  5. Rita Meredith says:

    In Florida we have many droughts. Since my kitchen is a distance from the hot water heater I need to run the water until it gets hot for doing dishes. I catch this water in a water pitcher and put on the plants in my container garden. Also, my dog’s outside water dish on the porch needs to be changed every day so I pour this on one of the plants as well.

  6. Connie H. says:

    We only use dishwasher when a full load and also the same with washing clothes.

  7. Rhonda Gaston-Brooks says:

    We collect rain water in filtering drums to use for our poultry!

  8. Taffy Kettenburg says:

    No running water–so we use 1 gal jugs to fill from our solar pump when it runs. We collect the extra in a stock tank which serves the stock and dipping for toilet flushes. We use the saying if its brown flush it down if its yellow let it mellow. I scrub the toilet daily and leave the Thieves cleaner to flush with the next need. I have 2 dishpans, one for soap-water/cleaning and one for vinegar-water/rinsing (in the summer the pans’ contents water outside flowers). It takes so little to clean up about 1 gal total and I only do dishes no more that once daily to no less than every 3rd day. I distill water for drinking and empty the distiller waste for watering plants or flushing. I bath/hair wash with 2 gal of water heated by the wood stove. I use to live in the city and took a daily morning & evening shower. I feel every bit as clean today. One can do more than one thinks if you put your mind to it. 🙂 The drink bottles look interesting and fun!

  9. Cyndee Joncas says:

    We have an on-demand water heater and it takes a couple of gallons to get hot. So as not to waste the water, we catch it in re-used plastic gallon water jugs and use the water to fill the chickens’ water and water the plants. Thank you!

  10. Oksana Slivka says:

    I make my 3 boys shut the water off when they are brushing their teeth.

  11. Joni King says:

    We use water saving filters on all our faucets and I never let the water run when I brush my teeth.

  12. Jackie Timmerman says:

    I drink a lot of water so I use non disposable water bottles and wash them at night to fill with ice and water every day

  13. Melanie Rykena says:

    I have an older washing machine but I try to conserve water by always adjusting the water level for the load size… saves on detergent as well….

  14. Becky says:

    Never buy bottled water, turn off the shower while leathering up, water garden at night from the yesterdays rain water or the undrunk water in our bottles. I live in the city. I try.

  15. Debra W says:

    I keep tubs in the bathrooms and the kitchen to collect the water when we wash our hands or get a drink of water. When those tubs are full I pour the water in a big bucket. Then I use that water to water my plants, flowers and gardens.

  16. Brooke says:

    We use rain barrels to collect rain water for gardening.

  17. Sharon says:

    collect rain water from barn and garage to cisterns to water the sheep and cows

  18. Angel says:

    I collect rainwater and use it for my plants

  19. Cindy Lopez says:

    We do the usual, turn off faucet when brush teeth; run full loads in HE dishwasher and laundry machines; use leftover water for plants. We also only flush once for #2, and wait for two #1s before we flush. At 5gallons a Pop for flushing, it is a significant amount. Living in the desert, we have to use drip systems to get the most out of our moisture.

  20. Heather Majernik says:

    I collect rainwater to water plants and our chickens.

  21. Amy Litherland says:

    I shut my water off when I brush my teeth. Never used to! Also put a brick in my toilet tank. In our other bather room we need a new toilet and got a water efficient one that uses less water! Also have a rain barrel I use in the gardening months to water with!

  22. Nancy Dickinson says:

    I conserve water by filling a gallon jug and keep it in the refrigerator. Then when I want water I fill a container and drink from that. I also shut the water off and on when I wash dishes so the water isn’t constantly running. I also do not take long showers.

  23. Natasha Hernandez says:

    We keep the sink off when brushing teeth, water saving shower heads, limit the time we are in the shower.

  24. Daleene Wade says:

    We live on a farm and have 2 houses that share one well! We conserve water by limiting laundry loads, never using well water to wash vehicles or water the lawn. We also never leave water running while doing dishes and by taking short showers.

  25. Betsey Hedrick says:

    Water leftover from steaming, cooking vegtables used to water plants indoor and out. Do not shave legs in shower. Use a small bowl of water for razor.
    Melt snow to water indoor plants in the winter.
    Use snow for boiling pot to humidify home in dry winter mo.
    Wash hair once a week.

    … in MT!

  26. suaan sims says:

    this is not actually me that does this, but rather my husband. Hating high water bills, he catches the cold water out of the tub faucet before we shower, and uses it to water my plants!!! He is thrifty to a fault!!!

  27. Susan Bruck says:

    I have a water saving showerhead and mainly just try to pay attention and not run the water for too long and reuse my “grey water” for watering my plants.

  28. Jane jordan says:

    Shower with a friend!😊

  29. Avis says:

    I collect rain water and use it for watering my flowers and veggies in the summer. Sometimes the barrels run out as we will go without rain for a while. The plants strive on warm collected rain water.

  30. Sandy B says:

    Try to only wash full loads of laundry in my HE washing machine.

  31. Darcy Koch says:

    I limit my clothes washing until I have a full load and use cold water. I also have been taking shorter showers.

  32. Caroline Massaro says:

    Great to use on a long car trip or a hike in the woods.

  33. Amy Bassett says:

    I’m a busy mom with four kids….I could learn to conserve water better, yet I am careful to use water bottles for our children and myself instead of disposable. I also am a big fan of mason jars for holding water/tea.

  34. Josie Davis says:

    Don’t leave the faucet to run while brushing m teeth.

  35. Suzanna Drozd-Kowalski says:

    Always shut the water off while brushing my teeth and low pressure during showers. Now that we moved to a lake and have our own well and septic system I default to growing up and having to haul or biol water. The new motto is: “If it’s yellow let it mellow if it’s brown flush it down!”

  36. m greenwood says:

    Use rain barrels to collect water. Then use to water my potted plants.

  37. Kurt Arentsen says:

    One water saving measure I find easy to do is turning the sink faucet off when brushing my teeth. My best friend’s children taught me that one.

  38. Carol Watts says:

    While I’m waiting on the water to get hot to wash dishes I catch the cold water for my coffee maker. I also water my flowers with rain water.

  39. Julie Lucas says:

    I use he appliances, and after baths I use the water to fill the tank and flush the toilet, I also collect glasses of water left around the house to water plants and never buy bottled water, we carry our own from home to work and on road trips.

  40. Susan Sutton says:

    I turn the water off while brushing my teeth.

  41. Kathryn OBrien says:

    Our family saves water by using drip tape in our veggie garden beds and drip emitters on all of our landscape plants along with large quantities of mulch-gleaned free each year by asking our road tree trimmers to drop their chipped loads at our homestead.

  42. Diane Giese says:

    I have a couple of rain barrels. I also make a toothpaste with coconut oil and baking soda with drops of peppermint and oregano oil and I spit in the garbage so I don’t use water for brushing my teeth.

  43. Diana Malone says:

    We planted native plants that don’t require us to water them.

  44. We conserve water in our home by installing low flow faucet heads.

  45. Amanda Higgins says:

    Wash laundry on smallest setting to save water

  46. Tamara Oster says:

    I turn off the water while brushing my teeth, I also turn of the water while I wash the dishes when I do them by hand. I love the water bottles, lovely and functional.

  47. Carol Compton says:

    We have a rain barrel for watering plants, and rarely water our yard. Our landscaping is low maintenance native plants.
    In the house we use water saving appliances,and have no dishwasher so we control our water use easily.

  48. Heike says:

    Buckets in the shower!! I can’t believe how much water just run away. Also, when I had to put water in the toilet tank while our water was shut off, I realized how much water we use with each flush!! OMG!! I put a small water bottle filled into the tank so it fills up faster.

  49. Sarah Kohler says:

    We r saving our rain water and able to water our animals and garden without using the faucet!

  50. Susan Clarkson says:

    I take showers every 2 – 3 days. I get wet, then turn off water while I soap up, then turn on water to rinse.
