Work Tips

Even at work there are many ways to save water.

  1. If you use processed water in your business or facility, look into water recycling.
     
  2. Create a goal of how much water your company can save and plan a celebration once that goal is met.
     
  3. When ice cubes are leftover from your drink, don’t throw them out. Pour them on a plant.
     
  4. Every time you shave minutes off your use of hot water, you also save energy and keep money in your pocket.
     
  5. Write feature articles on your employee website that highlight water-saving ideas and successes.
     
  6. Invite your water utility conservation staff to your organization for Earth Day and other environmental.
     
  7. Show your company’s dedication to water conservation through a policy statement. Commit Management, staff and resources to the effort.
     
  8. Teaching it–Make suggestions to your employer to conserve water at work. Encourage your city and local schools to develop and promote water conservation among children and adults.

  9. Encourage employees to report leaks and problems with plumbing and irrigation equipment.

  10. Invest in a water broom which attaches to your hose but uses a combination of air and water pressure to aid cleaning. Water brooms can use as little as 2.8 gallons per minute (gpm) to remove dirt, food spills, leaves, and litter from concrete and asphalt while a standard hose typically uses 5 to 20 gpm.
