  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a basin, rather than under running water
  • Defrost frozen foods in the refrigerator overnight rather than under running water
  • Add food wastes to a compost pile rather than using the garbage disposal

These few tips add up to more than 225,000 gallons conserved each year while also saving you as much as $1,462*! Now, imagine if you applied these strategies to every sink, shower, toilet and appliance in your home.
