  • How Many Gallons of Water a Day Do You Need?

    Most people in the USA use over 100 gallons of water per day. Most people in developing countries use 3 gallons or less per day. If Americans had to walk more then 4 miles to day to fetch water, they'd use a lot less of it. But having a tap in your house doesn't mean you can't conserve.

    Here are a few ways to save water and protect the Earth's water resources:

    • Take a 5 minute shower instead of a 15 minute shower. Set a timer! You'll save 15 gallons.
    • Don't let the water run constantly when washing or rinsing dishes.
    • Fix faucets that drip.
    • Use cooking water for the garden or cleaning instead of just throwing it down the drain.
    • Only turn on the clothes or dishwasher when it's full.
    • Don't keep the water running when you brush your teeth.
