This week's tip - don't waste water!

Many of us don't think we waste much water, but the average person in the UK uses around 150 litres of water every day and around one third of this is wasted. The most common forms of water wastage are everyday acts such as brushing your teeth whilst leaving the tap running, which wastes around six litres of water a minute.

If you're serious about reducing your carbon footprint then be more conscious about the water wastage.

When you brush your teeth don't leave the tap running, just use what you need when you need it or even better fill a glass with water and use that.
