Water and energy audits

Bluegrass PRIDE is offering water usage kits and I’m going to pick one up this week.

We save as much water as we can already:

  • We don’t water the lawn — just the garden that feeds us all year and the trees (which shade the house and would be very expensive to replace).
  • We run full loads of laundry (cold water only).
  • My husband frequently refuses to use the dishwasher and does the dishes by hand. If we are using the dishwasher, which is not energy-efficient, you can bet it’s full before we do.

That all being said, I bet this water-usage kit will help us find more ways to save water and, therefore, money.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
