As you may know, California is having its worst drought in recorded history. Recently, my cousin who lives in California told me about a simple method that she and her family are using to save water, using it to keep plants alive instead of going down the drain.
Put a large 2-quart plastic pitcher in your shower. When it’s full, use the water for your plants. I was surprised at the average amount of water I use in a single shower — 1-1/2 quarts!
