Waste Less Water

Rather than let rainwater and gray water (water collected after being used in the washing machine, shower or sink) go to waste, install a system or systems to capture some or all of it for landscape irrigation or indoor water use. Install low-flow faucets and showerheads, and toilets that are low-flow (optimally, less than 1.1 gallons per flush), too.
