Rain barrels are a simple and cheap way to save on water for your landscaping. By capturing rain water and reusing it to water your garden, trees and shrubs or other plantings you can quickly cut costs. Your landscaping may offer other areas to cut water usage: make sure to only water in the evening, overnight or early morning hours when the sun is low and use mulch to retain water around plants.
Kitchens should consider installing foot pedal operated sinks, and encouraging staff to thaw food in the fridge instead of under running water. Every business can install low flow toilets and showers, automatic sinks and other energy star rated appliances. Hotels can also institute a linen reuse program to allow for less water used in washing and raise consumer awareness!
