Water-saving rinse

Here’s a way to save water: When washing produce, fill a pan with water and rinse the fruit and vegetables in the pan instead of under a running faucet. Then, use the rinse water to give houseplants (or outdoor plants) a drink.

Every minute you turn the faucet off saves 4 gallons. Five minutes means 20 gallons.
