  • How to build water saving habits into your daily chores

Turn your kids or grandkids into super water savers by sneaking these 5 habits into their chores:

  1. When it's shower time, get them to choose a waterwise shower song from our Spotify playlist and hop out when the song is done. Each song is less than 4 minutes.
  2. Clear the table every night but wait until the dishwasher is full before turning it on to save water and electricity.

  3. Always turn the tap off while brushing teeth to save up to 10 litres per minute.

  4. Fill up a water bottle every night and pop it in the fridge. This will help avoid running the tap until the water is cool enough to drink.

  5. After cleaning out the fish tank, give the nutrient-rich water to non-edible plants around the house and garden.
