Find out about small changes you can make every day not only to save water, energy and money but also to help protect the environment and future water supplies.

Top Tips

Most of us don’t know how much water we use each day. Our recent research shows that 46 per cent of people believe their household uses under 20 litres a day (roughly equivalent to taking a 2-minute shower) when the true figure is closer to 142 litres per person per day. This means an average family of four in the UK could use more than 500 litres each day.

By making small changes such as turning the tap off when brushing your teeth or swapping a bath for a short shower, you’re not only helping to save water but energy and money too, as well as protecting the environment and future supplies.
