Water saving tips should be an important call to action for many business owners. Whether you are conscious of the environment or just the bottom line, reducing water costs can save you money.
Hotel owners can save money by instituting a laundry reuse program – get guests on board with not washing all linens freshly every day. Educate housekeeping staff on the importance of doing full loads of laundry. Additionally, consider installing low flow toilets and shower heads in public and private restrooms, as well as motion sensor sinks. Restaurants can also apply this tip where applicable in their restrooms. Both hotels and restaurants should consider installing sink aerators.
Often times staff education can go a long way. Be sure your staff is not running water unless it’s absolutely necessary, and that they know to report leaks to the maintenance staff immediately. The same goes for customer education. Get your clients, guests and customers on board with your water saving agenda!
Water saving tips can be done out of doors to, by watering your landscaping only early in the morning or late in the evening. Consider using rain barrels to collect water falling out of the sky to use in irrigation.
