Did you know that with a few small adjustments, you have the ability to save 40,000 gallons of water each year? Even those are who living a green lifestyle are looking past a few simple steps in order to conserve water. Though 70 percent of Earth’s surface is water, only 1 percent is available for human consumption. Together, we need to make a change. With low-flow fixtures on your appliances, you can save an astonishing amount of water – and not to mention the amount of money you can save on water bills. By purchasing a low-flow toilet, one household can save 33,000 gallons of water per year. If every household in the United States used these appliances, we could save 5.4 billion gallons of water per day!
