MORE WAYS TO SAVE WATER

Water your garden for longer but do it less often

(this will encourage deeper roots which helps plants become more drought tolerant)

Limit shower time to 4 minutes

(try using a timer or playing a 4-minute song)

Only use the washing machine and dishwasher when full and on eco mode

Plug the sink when washing vegetables

(use a small amount of water in the sink or a bowl to wash your veges)

Use mulch on your garden to stop water evaporation by up to 70%
