Water-Wise Living Continues

The last month of summer is often the hottest.  So, with water still (and always around these parts) on the brain, here are a handful of water-wise living tips from a recent workshop:

Turn off the faucet when you don't need it--that means teeth-brushing, face-washing, even when you're just scrub-a-dub-dubbing your hands or body at the sink or in the shower. 

Fix leaky faucets and toilets (a leaky faucet can waste up to 100 gallons of water a day!).

Run your dishwashers and washing machines only when they are full.

Install a water purifier that will provide cleaner and healthier water for
drinking and cooking. At All Shades, we reccomend Aquasana for an affordable and thorough water filter--and we've got them in the store.  You can also visit to find out more about your water filtering choices. 

Every drop counts!
