Not everyone will jump in the deep end and opt for a composting toilet, but there’s lot’s that you can do to cut down on water waste. A shower generally uses less water than a bath, but if you’re using a power shower consumption will rise.
Newer toilets use lots less water than older models, and you’ll save even more with a dual-flush version. Even if you’re not upgrading you can put a brick or a Hippo water saver in the cistern and save with every flush.
Recycling doesn’t have to be confined to the kitchen; you can place two bins in the bathroom, one for gray bin waste such as cotton buds and razor blade, and keep another for plastic containers, paper and cardboard destined for recycling.
Try not to go overboard on additives in your soaps and shampoos, and there’s loads of products out there that flaunt their environmental credentials.If you use an immersion electrical heater to provide hot water, use it sparingly. If you leave it constantly on your electricity bills will spiral. Finally you’ve read step one, so you know all about placing a lagging jacket on the hot water cylinder.
