Prompt: Daily water conservation tip
Response: :

Water conservation may seem like a daunting task, but by following a few easy tips, you can substantially reduce your water use.

1. Turn off the water when you’re not using it. This may seem like a simple thing, but wasting water by leaving running water on when you’re done can account for a large chunk of your usage.

2. Avoid watering plants when it’s not necessary. Many people mistakenly believe that watering their plants helps them grow, when in fact, over watering can actually harm them. Try to water plants in moderation, only when the soil feels dry.

3. Faucet Smart. If you have multiple taps in your home, try to use the one with the least amount of water. If you only have one tap, try to use it for brushing your teeth and cooking, and reserve the shower for use when necessary.

4. Reduce your use of dishwashing soap. Many people use too much soap when washing dishes, which strips away the natural oils from dishes and leaves them prone to bacteria buildup. Try using a diluted version of soap or a alternative detergent when washing dishes.

5. Compost. Not only does compost help to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills, it also helps to improve the soil and increase the availability of nutrients for plants. By composting, you can help to reduce your water usage by up to 50%.
