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. Then simple changes we make in our homes reduce our environmental impact.
The average American family uses 400 gallons of water a day. In addition, 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. Running it until cold water hits the tap. Another option could be replacing your home’s older toilets to more water efficient toilets.
Bathroom faucets can use up to two gallons of water per minute and then when they leak it can be even worse. Below is a video from Mendel Plumbing on how you can fix the faucet that is leaking in your bathroom.
