Water Addiction

Water Addiction

Lawns and gardens are one obvious place where water consumption is high. Plants are great and are good for the environment in many ways, but try to use native plants that consume water efficiently. For example, cacti in the dry Southwest. Failing that, consider using artificial plants, even those silk flowers I mentioned before. They might not be real, but they definitely save on H20. Another place to save water is in sanitation. Many homes are installing “lo-flo” and dual flush toilets, which basically provide you with a choice to use relatively low or high amounts of water, depending on the nature of what it is you’re flushing. (No need to go into great detail on that point!)
