In the Kitchen

  • Cook food in as little water as possible.  Using less water also helps foods better retain their nutrients.
  • Use the dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand.  Try an Energy Star certified dishwasher for even more savings.  
  • When running the faucet to wash fruits or get hot water, collect the excess water and use it to water plants.  
  • Instead of using the garbage disposal, compost your food waste.  
  • Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you clean them.
