You may see water as a never-ending resource that's always there when you need it, but remember that for many people around the world, access to clean drinking water is a luxury -- and sometimes, an impossibility. So stop being so damn greedy. Stop Wasting By: *Only running your dishwasher and laundry machine when they're full. *Installing a toilet flapper and a low-flow showerhead. *Taking shorter showers (15 minutes is just unnecessary!). *Turning off the water while brushing your teeth, washing your dishes or shaving. *Washing your car -- without water. Eco Touch has a line of waterless car cleaning and detailing products that will leave your vehicle sparkling without using a drop of water (go to EcoTouch.net to buy). less
