With this one simple action, you can conserve 64 cups of drinkable water every day.
Turn off the faucet while you brush your teeth.
Unfortunately, 42% of Americans leave the water running as they brush their teeth. That means each individual wastes almost 900 cups of water every week. And that water costs. If every member of a family of four remembers to turn off the water while brushing their teeth, the family water bill will be decreased by about 13% annually. That adds up to a savings of about $65.
And that buys a lot of toothpaste!
