Rinse vegetables in a sink instead of running the tap


Many of our kitchen taps run at more than 8 litres per minute.  By filling a sink with water to wash vegetables, you can wash a week’s worth of produce with less than 20 litres of water.


When you get home from the grocery store, fill your sink part way, and wash your fruit and vegetables.  When you get the veggies out of the fridge or fruit out of the fruit bowl, it’s ready to eat, chop, or cook.
