Bathroom
   Guidelines 1 to 10 of 10

  Conserve water in the bathroom. 
By using a low flow shower head, a toilet water displacement device, by taking showers instead of baths and letting the "yellow mellow", one can conserve an enormous amount of water.

  Fix leaky faucets and "running" toilets.  poll closed
Sometimes jiggling the handle isn't enough. That leaky faucet or "running" toilet wastes thousands of gallons of water a month and will finally give you a little peace and quiet.

  Flush only when neccessary. 
Reducing the number of toilet flushes per day, by "letting the yellow mellow" can save an enormous amount of water.

  Recycle used deodorant containers.  poll closed
Most deodorant containers are made from recycleable plastic. Let's keep this out of our landfills and away from degrading into our water supply!

  Share a shower with your friend or loved one!  poll closed
Two can shower as fast and efficiently as one. Not only will you save water but you can get help cleaning those hard to reach areas!

  Use cloth diapers.  poll closed
They say that 1% of all American landfill space is occupied by disposable diapers which take up to 500 years to decompose. Cotton can be reused 100 times and decomposes in 1-6 months. Reduce landfill glut and save natural resources, use cloth diapers.

  Use cloth wipes instead of toilet paper or baby wipes  poll closed
If you cloth diaper, chances are you use cloth wipes...why not use cloth wipes instead of TP for the rest of the family? Of course, I always leave a package around for guests but even then it is recycled.

  Use concentrated products.  poll closed
Use concentrated products, such as juice, laundry detergent, and other cleaners, when available. Concentrated products reduce packaging waste and save money.

  Use low flow shower heads. 
Low flow shower heads conserve water by reducing the amount of water while increasing water pressure.

  Use toilet paper containing 50% or more of post consumer waste.  poll closed
If saving old growth forests is your interest, using recycled toilet paper is an important purchase decision. Post consumer products are the best way to reduce deforestation.
