  • Run a dishwasher and washing machine only when fully loaded and select economy cycles.
  • Half fill the sink with hot water and dishwashing detergent to hand wash dishes.  Don't wash under running water.
  • Have shorter showers - challenge yourself to a 2 minute shower!
  • Always use the half flush on the toilet and only flush when necessary "If it's brown flush it down, but if it's yellow let it mellow!"
  • Fill the bath with just enough water to bathe, then recycle the water to the garden.
  • Collect shower water in a bucket for recycling to the garden.
  • Rinse fruit and vegetables in a bowl of water instead of under a running tap.
  • Choose water wise plants, eg natives or even gerberas.
  • If you have a pool, use a cover to reduce evaporation.
