  1. Before watering your garden, check the weather forecast!
  2. Only water your plants in the morning or evening and use a trigger nozzle!
  3. When brushing your teeth or washing your hands, turn off the tap and save 5 litres of water per minute!
  4. At laundry time, always use a full load in the washing machine!
  5. When washing your car, use a bucket and a trigger nozzle on the grass, not the driveway!
  6. At shower time, use a timer to keep showers to a minimum!
