Each year, on Earth Day, we challenge ourselves to add "one new thing" as a leverage point of reducing our ecological footprint. This year, we are focused on our water footprint and will reduce our water consumption by 20%. To accomplish this, we plan to install drip irrigation for our garden. We could also reduce water consumption if we:
replace toliets with Watersense certifed products
install low flow showerheads
install aerators on faucets
keep showers to 6 minutes or less
use gray water for irrigation
We hope you will join us in adding new sustainable actions each year. Happy Earth Day!
