For the past two years we have seen the minimalist trend make its way into fashion must-haves. With it came the casual and chic sneaker look. Whether it’s plain white sneakers, Yeezys, or the newest pair of Nikes, you can be sure to spot them in the trendiest street style.
Five tips to conserve water! Keep these tips in mind throughout your day and you can make a difference in water conservation for ourselves and wildlife.
- Turn the tap off. When you’re brushing your teeth or washing your dishes make sure to only run water when rinsing.
- Say no to bottled water. Opt for a reusable water bottle instead of a one-time use plastic bottle. The removal of water to create bottled water and the production that goes into making the plastic bottle is harmful to communities and wildlife.
- Load up on laundry. When you do large loads of laundry less water is used per a garment. This also works with dishwashers!
- Sweep it up. Invest in a broom to sweep your patios and sidewalks instead of hosing them down.
- Opt for native plants. Dress up your landscape in climate perfect plants. Look for regional plants that flourish on the natural rainfall only.
