Saving Water Saves Animals

Turn me off

A whole lot of water is wasted when a faucet like me is left running.

And that wastes energy too!

If you let me run for just five minutes you'd be using as much energy as letting a 60 watt lightbulb burn for 14 hours.
  Install me - a water-efficient toilet!

If just one in a hundred U.S. households replaced an older toilet with one like me, we would save enough electricity to run 250 homes for a month!

 
   
Fix the leaks

I can help you fix a leaky toilet and save 350 gallons of water per week.

And fixing a leaky faucet or showerhead can save 1,000 gallons!
  Take a five-minute shower

You can save up to 20 gallons of water by taking a five minute shower instead of a bath.

That's enough water to keep a fish happy in an average sized aquarium.

 
   
Refrigerate me

If you refrigerate drinking water instead of letting the water run to get cold, you can save a gallon of water per drink.
  Refill me at the tap

If everyone in the U.S. used a refillable water bottle like me, we would save enough fuel to power 100,000 cars for a year.

 
   
Flush one less

If everyone in the U.S. skipped just one toilet flush, they would save enough water to fill a pond that's four feet deep and 20 times the size of the entire Zoo.
  Turn off the water

A family of four can save almost 24,000 gallons of water per year by turning the water off while brushing their teeth.
