Water is one of the most commonly used things in a household whether it’s brushing your teeth, having a shower or doing the dishes- we all know how much water impacts our day-to-day lives. Wasting this valuable resource can not only cause damage to the environment but also your wallet too!

The UK alone produces an estimated 11 billion litres of waste water each day just from homes, businesses and water collected via sewer networks.

These small things can create such a huge impact on recycling waste water processes!

Regardless, there are solutions for how everyone can lower their daily consumption. Here’s a room by room approach to saving water: -

    1. In the bathroom

  • Turn off the tap whilst brushing your teeth.
  • Avoid flushing unnecessary waste in the toilet.
  • Take shorter showers or shallow baths.
  • Check all faucets, pipes, and toilets regularly for any leaks.

    2. In the Kitchen

  • When drying your laundry, hang them up instead of throwing them into the tumble dryer.
  • Try to use a full load of dishes in the dishwasher instead of doing small loads.
  • Use a washing basin or a plug in your sink to catch excess water.
  • Put large bottles of tap water in the fridge, ensures you can have chilled water all the time.


    3. In the Garden

  • Minimise water usage by reusing bathwater to water your houseplants or garden.
  • Try to use a watering can instead of a hose.
  • Install a Rain Barrel – this allows you catch and store large amounts of rain water and use it whenever.
  • Use plenty of mulch! – Using thick layers of mulch, compost or chip barks on your soil between plants can help keep the moisture in and suppress weeds.

We are in the business of making Recycling Waste Water as efficient as possible by removing rag and grit, but everyone has a part to play by making sure we aren’t misusing this valuable resource.
