1000 Flowers for the Planet - #192 Put a Brick in the Cistern
Sometimes you just can’t afford to replace household items and it’s not always an easy job when they require full-on installation, so if you can’t change your toilet to a dual- or low-flush system (Flower #191), put a brick in the cistern. The water only fills within the cistern to a predetermined level. A brick is a good size to place within the cistern to reduce the amount of water that can be contained, thereby reducing the total litres being used for each flush. The overall savings will be noticeable in reduced water use and costs, and you will be saving the planet’s most precious resource.
