Water is a precious commodity you can’t live without. Depending on where you live, your water bill can be one of your larger monthly expenses, especially during the summer. With the help of landscapers, you can set up a rainwater harvesting system that helps you save money and reduces the demand for water in your community.
As the crises surrounding the environment and spending in the U.S. (and the world) begin to enter their crescendo – I believe we haven’t even begun to see the full force of pushback on environmental issues yet – it’s important to keep track of all facets of our carbon footprint.
Often times we don’t really look at our water consumption, though, until water conservation efforts our put into place by our communities. Even then, it’s kind of an afterthought.
Saving water is one of the top ways homes are doing their part to help the environment and reduce their carbon footprint. Ecological mothers in particular are teaching their children about the benefits of this practice, as well as the easy ways they can save water with their daily habits.

Blisteringly hot summer days may make you want to jump in the pool, run through the sprinklers, or spray each other with the hose, but there are plenty of ways to conserve water at home, too.
The federal government will soon have an important decision to make that could affect the lives of thousands of sea turtles every year. One of the worst dangers sea turtles currently face is getting caught in fishing nets, often facing injury and death by suffocation as a result. Some of the worst culprits are the trawl nets that are slowly dragged behind boats, trapping many marine species in their wake.
If you are anything like me, then you are sick of paying loads of money for bottled water. Not only are you paying big bucks for it, the bottles themselves are not good for your or the environment. Plastic contains tons of toxins which can seep into your water, making it really unhealthy to drink. On top of that, plastic also takes up a lot of space in landfills and never goes away. Why damage yourself, the environment, and your pocketbook? Try one of these four alternatives to bottled water today:
