Don't pour money down the drain
Small changes in how you use your water - from turning off the tap while brushing your teeth to not over-filling the kettle - can have a big impact. As well as doing your bit for the environment, you can save money too.
Also think about how often you heat water - around 16 per cent of your energy bills comes just from doing this - that's around £228 per year for a typical family. Consider those half empty dishwasher and washing machine cycles - we all do it. With just a few tweaks to how and when you heat water, you could send your gas and electricity bills tumbling - and also your water bill if you're on a meter.
