Bottled water isnâ€™t necessarily cleaner or better for you than tap water. Get a Brita water-filter pitcher or an in-sink faucet filter.
2) Turn off the tap
The average faucet releases about three gallons of water a minute, so shut it off while you brush your teeth, shave or brush down your baby hairs. Lol!
4) Install a better showerhead
Install a high-efficiency showerhead and in one yearâ€™s time, you can save between 1,000 and 8,000 gallons of water. Crazy, right?
5) Reverse your ceiling fan
Most people donâ€™t use ceiling fans in the winter, but if you run the fan in reverse at a low speed the hot air that rises can then circulate.
6) Use VOC free paint
You know that new paint smell? Well, itâ€™s actually not good for you. Try to paint walls with paint that is low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Itâ€™s a harmful chemical found in many paints and stains. Try www.bioshieldpaint.com for safe options.
Remember ladies, itâ€™s never too late to do your part.
