Did you know that small changes in our daily routines can make a big difference in conserving water and reducing our bills? Here are some easy tips to help you become a water-saving champion this water saving week and that can be used going forward.

Monitor your water usage: Keep an eye on your water bills and compare them to the suggested average use for your household size. If you notice a significant difference, investigate and ensure there are no leaks. Remember, fixing dripping taps promptly can save gallons of water.

Know your water usage: Around 85% of people underestimate how much water they use. Complete a water calculator to estimate your usage and receive personalized tips on how to save water. Check out resources like Thames Water's water-saving calculator to get started.

Mindful taps: Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth. Running taps can use up to 9 litres per minute, so every drop counts.
Reuse Water: Get creative with water reuse. For example, use cooled cooking water to hydrate your plants instead of letting it go down the drain.

Shower smart: Opt for showers over baths and try to reduce your shower time. On average, a shower uses 12 litres per minute, so shorter showers can lead to significant water savings.

Appliance efficiency: Use your dishwasher and washing machine when they're full and select eco-settings if available. Washing at the lowest temperature possible also helps save water and energy.

We're committed to helping you reduce your water usage as part of our Environmental Sustainability Strategy. Our goal is to bring down consumption to 139.6 litres per person per day by 2026. By conserving water, we not only save money but also contribute to mitigating potential water shortages, reducing our environmental impact, and combating climate change.

Let's work together to make every drop count and create a more sustainable future for our community.
