Green for less: Reclaim your gray water

Food, clothing, shelter and water. We need them all but without water there would be no food, in fact, no life at all. It is so important that we protect and conserve this precious resource.

Most of us know the usual ways to save water, namely fixing leaky faucets, installing a low flush toilet and switching to low-flow shower heads but what about the ones we might be overlooking? The following suggestions may not seem like a big deal but, just as even a small drip from a worn faucet can waste 20 gallons of water a day, doing each one of these small things consistently will add up to big water savings over the long haul.
