Whenever you save water and energy, you save money. By reducing your energy usage, you also reduce the demand for fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Less burning of fossil fuels results in lower emissions of carbon dioxide, a primary contributor to global warming. By reducing your water use you not only save this precious resource but you also save on the energy that would have been used to transport and treat the water. Investing in efficient conservation measures has proven to be a cost effective way to help safeguard the reliability of natural resources.
