How Much Water is Your Home Really Wasting?
Though 70% of Earth’s surface is water, only 1% is available for human consumption. Between faucets, washing machines, showers and toilets, an average family in the United States uses 127,000 gallons of water per year. However, we have the power to change that. By making small adjustments to your appliances with low-flow fixtures, you can dramatically decrease the amount of water you waste and money you spend. Together, we have the power to save 2 trillion gallons of water and more than 4 billion dollars.
