Turn it off – Save Water

Water is a precious resource
Taking long showers is pleasant but expensive. Brushing your teeth without turning off the sink wastes 15 to 20 liters of water per minute. The toilet’s economy flush button can help reduce one third of daily water use.

Even when washing small amounts of dishes you can save water by washing the dishes in a sink filled with water rather than washing them under running water.

Laundry
It makes the most sense to fill a laundry machine completely because it consumes the same amount of water and electricity regardless of how much laundry is in it.  

You can save even more by selecting the appropriate washing temperature. Usually 30–40°C suffice; and it’s rare that garments require above 60°C. You can further reduce energy consumption by skipping the pre-wash cycle.

...and one more tip: Use small amounts of detergent and avoid fabric softener.
