This Week:

7,018 FETCHers each averaged 422 gallons of water showering. They averaged 10.5 minutes per day, at 5 gallons of water each minute.

If all of these kids had low-flow, 2.5-gallon-per minute showerheads, you would save about 1,293,066 gallons of water in just one week.

If everyone showered two minutes less every day, you would save about 491,260 gallons of water each week.

If everyone did both, FETCHers could save about 1,915,563 gallons of water each week.

So, how can you save water?

  • Take showers not baths.
  • Take a shorter shower. Every minute counts!
  • Turn off the water when you brush your teeth and wash your face.
  • Don't use the toilet to flush trash.
  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine.
  • Keep a pitcher of cold water in the fridge, so you don't have to run the water to get it cold.
  • Use the same water glass all day.
  • Shut off the faucet when washing the car.

You want to do even MORE?

  • Install a low-flow shower head.
  • Turn the shower on only to get wet and rinse-off.
  • Catch water in a basin when you wash fruits & veggies and use this water to water the garden or wash the car.
  • Garden with plants that need less water.
  • Keep a bucket under the rain gutter & use this water to water the garden or wash the car.
  • When your family gets a new toilet, find an ultra-low-flush toilet. It uses 1.5 gallons per flush instead of the 4 gallons a regular toilet uses.
  • When your family gets a new dishwasher, get one that is water-efficient – it can save 6 gallons per load.
  • If your family has an old washing machine, new machines USE 40% less water per load than older machines.
