Friday Quickie: Boil it & ConServe

boiling-water-conserve

The average US household uses 130,000 gallons of water per year. Therefore, anytime you can conserve H2O helps the cause.

When making a delicious dinner (or snack), try to boil food in as little water as possible.  Use just enough water to cover what your cooking, and put a lid on to heat things up faster.

After you’re finished and the water’s cooled down, use the excess water to water houseplants instead of dumping down the drain.

Easy peasy, right?
