-Fix leaky faucets. Apparently, 20 gallons a day can be lost to a simple drip!
-Installing low flow everything (toilets, shower heads, faucets) can help save water.
-Plant plants that thrive in drier conditions, so they require less watering! Also-don't water mid day as some will be lost to evaporation!
-Hubby showers quickly (and he turns off the water while he's sudsing), and then he fills the tub with clean hot water to soak his sore bones and muscles in. I often will then use that water for my bath.
-Many people shower more than they need to (typically due to societal norms). If you showered yesterday, and you didn't sweat and aren't particularly greasy, you probably don't need to shower today. This doesn't work for people who work out daily, or in summertime, or for people who are on the greasy end of the spectrum. It can, however, make a big difference for people who have dry skin or hair! I shower about 2 times a week in winter. it really helps with dryness that has come about due to aging for me. In summer, I will often wash my body (because I sweated), but not my hair. I put my hair up in a top knot and then get in the shower. As well, sometimes wetting a towel and then wiping down my face and body is enough to get me through another day. I would never begrudge someone a shower that needs one...but I also don't want to see people bathing daily just because "that's what people do". Bonus-you will also save money on shower products (shampoo, soap, etc,) and after shower products (hair and skin products you leave on)!
