Water for your plants can add up, so collecting used water for watering plants — instead
of letting it run straight down the drain — is an easy way to save a few gallons of water
each week. Opportunities to reuse water include:
Cooled-down water from cooking pasta ...
... or from steaming or boiling vegetables
Your pet water bowl when you refreshing it
Ice cubes that fall on the floor
If you are running the faucet to get the water hot, collect the water as it runs and save it
for reuse. You might consider keeping a gallon jug and a funnel under your sink for
conserving used water.
