pitcher of chilled water

Nothing beats a refreshing drink of cold water on a hot summer day, but have you ever stopped to think of how much water you’re wasting b y running the tap until it’s cold?

Here’s a tip. Keep a pitcher of drinking water in your refrigerator. That way, when you’re parched, you won’t have to leave the faucet running while waiting for the water to cool.

Also, get in the habit of checking your faucets to make sure they’re turned off tightly. A small drip can waste considerable amounts of water when ignored.
