  • Run dishwashers and washing machines with full loads only.
  • Scrape your plates instead of rinsing before loading them into the dishwasher.
  • When washing dishes by hand, fill the sink with soap and water instead of running the tap. Fill another basin with clean water for rinsing.
  • Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator, instead of running the tap until the water is cool.
  • Don't let the faucet run while cleaning vegetables. Instead, rinse them in a sink or bowl filled with clean water.
  • Thaw frozen foods ahead of time in sitting water or in the air rather than under running water.
  • Add food wastes to your compost pile instead of using the garbage disposal.
