Don't rinse plates; scrape food off instead. Most dishwashers remove food residues and pre-rinsing can waste as much as 20 gallons per load
Only run the dishwasher on full loads. No matter how efficient your washer is, running it half full wastes twice the water. Load up.
Don't pay to heat the outdoors. Seal and insulate your home to keep warm air inside. You could save up to $400 annually
Switch to a low flow showerhead. Choose one that "aerates the water" and you can keep up the pressure while halving water use
