Save the Water cartoon and some tips

California has been in a 4 year drought; our grass is brown or non-exitent, our plants are surviving on the cool night moisture. What more can you do?  SAVE the shower/bath water of course.

I assembled this image in ecal2 from Surecutsalot. All are free downloads.  I printed and laminated it to make a frig magnet.

 A 3 minute shower can do the job and all you have to do is catch the water  and haul it out to the plants. It is a lot easier if your shower/bath is on the first floor, ours is upstairs so Hubby does that.

Here are some other resources you can use to save even more household water.

A google search for saving water comes up with even more ideas for bathrooms and kitchen water (grey water). I'm not a fan of this YET but "if it's yellow, let it mellow has some nice designs for the bathroom too.'s+yellow+let+it+mellow&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

In the kitchen I keep a pitcher where we dump old coffee, tea, catching rinse water etc. and use it to pour in the drain when running the garbage disposal.

I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can help our planet, our state, and yourself by being a bit more environmentally aware.

Thanks for stopping by and remember SAVE the WATER.
