Saving Water

  1. Media Library - Green Schools Logo



There are many ways we can save water at home and school. Here are a few tips to help you to help us:

  • turn off the taps when washing your teeth - you can save six litres of water
  • take a shower not a bath - but don't use power showers as a 10-minute shower uses as much water as three baths!
  • fill the kettle with just enough water for your needs - you can save energy as well!
  • use waste water from dish washing to water your plants
  • never use a hose pipe in your garden
  • always fix leaking taps
  • use your dish washer and washing machine only when they are full - thus saving energy as well!

And don't forget to.....

  • turn off appliances when not in use
  • turn down the heat
  • reduce, reuse and recycle 

Keep an eye on the school website to keep up-to-date with all our work.
