Put a bowl or basin in the sink to catch water and use it to rinse dishes for the washer. Or use it as a wash basin during food prep and clean up and use a dish drainer for drying. Save water and energy! CO

Peak Water is here. Dr. Peter Gleick is an expert in climate and hydrology. He says, “Unlike peak oil, there is no substitution for water. But, like peak oil the low-hanging fruit of our fresh water supply has been picked and what is left requires costly environmental and financial impacts to extract.” (That’s scary to think about.)
*Rainwater Collection is not costly to the environment, and it is free to you!
Dr. Gleick goes on to say, “Today some 18 countries, containing half the world’s people, are over pumping their aquifers. Among these…….. the United States.”
*This includes our Edwards, Trinity, and Glenrose aquifers. Right here in Central Texas! (Another scary thought.)
