Saving 10 gallons of water a day

So I have taken the challenge. I am trying to reduce the water I use be 10 gallons a day.

The list below is taken directly from the Nature Canada web site and I have discovered most of these are easy to do. Taking a shorter shower is a bit of a struggle, however, the rest of the list is not that difficult.


If you would like to take the challenge, go to the web site below and have a look.
