green note #5 – let’s not waste precious water
2009 June 5, Friday
There are several ways to save water. Here are some suggestions from me. If you have more, please share with me.
At home, use a mug when brushing teeth instead of just letting water run from a tap while gargling. Also turn off the shower when you are shampooing or soaping yourself. Do our laundry only when there’s a full load. And use the water that is drained out to flush the toilet or wash the floor of the porch if you live in landed property. Water collected from dehumidifiers can be used too.
In hotels, I always request for my bed linen and towels not to be changed at all if I’m only staying for a few days. I sometimes have to write a note and leave on the bed cuz many times, the chambermaid would still change them even when you follow the instructions from those “go green” reminders. You don’t change them daily at home, so why would you need to in a hotel???
