    We like to leave a bucket in our shower. We use it to catch the cold water that comes first while we are waiting for the water to get hot. We found that it takes about 1 bucket of water to get to the hot stuff. Our cats actually love to drink the water right when we first fill the bucket. After the cats have had their fill we use the rest of the water on our plants.

    I don’t have a fancy dual flush toilet, so I put a full bottle of water in the tank. This displaces that much water from the full load. It normally uses 1.6 gallons per flush, but with that in there it reduces it by about 16oz, or whatever the size of the bottle is.

    You can also use a brick or basically anything that doesn’t float or degrade in water.

    I buy only xeriscape plants for my patio garden. Since they are native Florida plants, they are drought resistant and save lots of water in the muggy, hot, Florida summers.

    If it’s brown flush it down. If it’s yellow, let it mellow. :)

    We refuse to water our yard – green grass takes a LOT of watering in our area and it seems like a vanity rather than a necessity. We capture the cold water that comes from the sink/tub before it turns warm to water any plants/veggies but the grass just isn’t a priority.

    I follow Wine to Water on twitter. We’ve been supporting the organization since we first heard about them on the CNN Heroes special a few years ago. Big fans of wine, plus there’s the local connection with Doc (never met him but Raleigh is our adopted home), and the cause is amazing. Something as simple as water shouldn’t be a luxury.

    I have posted on the GreenUpgrader Facebook! One way I conserve water is to turn off the shower while I Iather.

    I have also followed Wine to Water and GreenUpgrader on Twitter and have mentioned you both in a post! My post states that to conserve water, if it’s yellow, I let it mellow.
