Many people are overwhelmed by the enormous challenges our environment is facing. However, you can look at it from a different angle, and think about smaller, simple changes we can make in our homes to help reduce our environmental impact.

The average American family uses 400 gallons of water a day, and there are a number of things families can do to reduce that number greatly. For example, keeping a pitcher of cold water in the fridge instead of running the water until it gets cold out of the tap. Another option could be replacing your home’s older toilets to more water efficient toilets.
