10 ways to save water

Count every drop, because every drop counts! Here are 10 ways you can save water.

Water is precious and we need to treat it that way. Check out how you can save water and let us know if you have any other brilliant ideas. We’d love to know!

Ask grown-ups to help where they can!


1. Take quick showers

It makes a real difference!

The faster you are the more water you save!

2. Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth.

There's no need to have it on.

All you need to do is wet your toothbrush before and after you use it.

3. Close taps properly.

Every drop of water is precious!

It may seem like a small thing but the wasted water from a dripping tap adds up!

4. Keep a reusable bottle of drinking water in the fridge.

You will save money and reduce your footprint!

Instead of buying water, simply keep a bottle in your fridge for when you get thirsty. This means we don't have to produce as much plastic, a process that wastes a lot of water. 

5. Only run the dishwasher when it’s full.

This is a great way to save water!

Wait until your dishwasher and washing machine are full before you use them.

6. Rinse veggies and fruit in a bowl of water instead of under a running tap.

Avoid running them under the tap!

It's much more water-wise to rather clean veggies in a bowl - it's not a good idea to use running water as that is wasteful.

7. Don’t flush the loo unless you have to.

Every flush uses a lot of water!

Try and avoid flushing the toilet unless you absolutely must.

8. Lay out mulch (such as old leaves, bark or compost) in your garden.

It slows down the evaporation of water!

Make sure your garden is healthy and happy without wasting any water.

9. Water the garden during the cool times of the day.

This means less water evaporates!

Watering your garden when it's cool means most of the water gets absorbed instead of evaporating.

10. Recycle water where you can and use it in the garden.

Old bath water and sink water can be reused!

Collect rain water, laundry water or old dish water and use it to water your garden.
