Our water saving tips
Did you know that shaving just 10 seconds off your shower time can save three litres of water? That means you could drink nearly 4,000 extra cups of tea a year and still reduce your water usage (although that might be cancelled out by more visits to the loo).
From just filling the kettle with what you need, to turning the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth, if everyone makes a few small changes it can add up to a huge difference.
Aim for a 4 minute shower to save up to 15 litres of water (per shower)
Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, and save over 6,500 litres of water a year
Save water and electricity by only boiling enough water for your immediate use
Hang up your hose – this uses as much water in an hour as the average family of 4 uses in a day and a half
