    • do not leave the water running while brushing your teeth or washing your face
    • when doing the laundry, make sure you wash with a full load

Also cut down on dish use when unnecessary by designating one glass for your drinking water each day. This reuse will cut down the amount of dishes washed. Also use of drip irrigation and planting of native plants, which are adapted to the natural climate, will reduce water.
