Water Down

We've Trimmed Our Waste Lines and Energized, and now it's time to...

Water Down

There are only two categories in this part of The Conscious Shopper Challenge, but there's a lot to do in each challenge, so I'm stretching it out over four weeks instead of two. Over the next four weeks, I'll challenge you with lots of ways to:
Even if you live in an area where water seems plentiful, it's still important to be conscious of your water consumption. Here in North Carolina, we have a hot humid climate where water seems to flow in abundance. Yet just a few years ago there was a terrible drought, and the greenies around here are in constant discussion about how to protect our polluted and depleting source of water - Falls Lake.

Water is an immensely important resource, both for our own consumption and for the consumption of the plants we depend on for food, and we need to be ever mindful of how we're using it and what we're letting flow into it.

So let's get to it and see if we can water down in 2010. Come back tomorrow for the first water challenge.

**WATER DOWN CHECKLIST** Keep track of your eco-changes by printing this checklist on recycled paper OR be extra green by saving your own editable digital copy.

Count me in...we've been reducing our electricity usage and I'm going outside right now to reset the sprinklers. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm with you too, I'm pretty good with the outdoor water use because my yard is so small it really doesn't need watering. I really need to focus on indoor water usage, especially the long hot shower I take every morning. I'm getting better but some mornings it's tough to get out. I can't wait for the rest of this challenge!

@DownDoggin in MN - I love hot showers so much - the hotter the better. Maybe I could convince myself to make it a special treat...like on holidays I get to take a long hot shower or something like that.
