Given the longterm water restrictions we're facing on the driest continent in the world, I think it was remiss of me not to post about water conservation last week in the flurry of environmental posts for Blog Action Day.
Fortunately, tipster Peggy wrote up a post on some simple ways that anyone can reduce their water usage. A couple of tips - capturing clean water from the shower while you wait for it to heat up, and capturing clean water from your washing machine - can give you ample water to water your plants or garden. Nice.
If you're interested in finding out more about low-usage shower and tap heads, grey water capturing devices, etc there are lots of resources online. But my favourite water saving tip? Shower with a friend. ;)
