1000 Flowers for the Planet - #548 Collect Shower Water
Water, as our most precious resource, can be saved in many ways. One small idea with a big impact is to put a bucket under the shower to collect all that water that would otherwise be wasted as you wait for the temperature to reach your desired level. No one likes to step into a freezing cold shower, and sometimes the hot water takes a while to come through, so collecting that initial run of precious water is one way to prevent waste. The collected bucket of water can be used to water plants, wash the dog, wash the car by hand, top up the birdbath or even flush the toilet. Using water wisely protects our precious resource, shows we value what we have and can also save money.
