Most people use between 80 to 100 gallons of water per day for basic necessities. This year, consider how you can make your water usage as friendly to the environment as possible.

  • Cut down on paper and plastic drinking vessels. Instead of buying bottled water, invest in a trusty reusable water bottle to fill with tap water—you’ll save money and ensure you always have water on the go.
  • Reduce the amount of water in which you cook food. Did you know that doing so actually helps your food retain more nutrients?
  • Fully load your dishwasher and clothes washer. Don’t run the wash if you’re not getting full use out of it! Plus, washing dark clothes in cold water saves energy and helps your clothes retain their color.

Without water, life as we know it would not exist. In fact, 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered. Staying educated and volunteering are both ways to make a difference when it comes to protecting our most essential natural resource in 2018.

  • Learn more about water issues. Make sure you and the children in your life know about the water cycle and the importance of treating Earth’s most essential resource with kindness.
  • Find a water-focused organization you’re passionate about. Consider volunteering with a nonprofit in your area dedicated to providing water to people around the world and in your communities, or give back through an organization focused on a specific water issue, from protecting our oceans to advocating for infrastructure improvements.

There are plenty of additional ways to make water a significant part of your new year. What are your goals for 2018? Let us know!
