My last few posts on Carbon Capture and the kWh have been pretty cerebral. So I'm going to keep this one nice and light, and it is something that everyone in your home can help out with.
In Atlanta, we have been in a drought (even though it just rained for 4 straight days). Because of this I have tried to focus more on not wasting water ( I know, drought or not I should focus on it!). One of the tips I discovered is how I can capture the water that just goes down the drain when I'm waiting for the shower to heat up.
Just find an old milk jug or one of those big plastic Gatorade containers, put it under the shower head while you wait for the hot water to come out, then put it under your sink until the next time you are ready for a shower. It's that easy.
Since most of Atlanta will probably be under outdoor watering bans this Summer, I can use this "wasted" water to make sure my mini-garden doesn't go dry!
