Green Building 101: Water Efficiency


It's Wednesday, time for our Green Building 101 class over at Inhabitat. Teacher Sarah once again mixes fabulous illustrations with jargon-free prose, explaining why and how we should collect and conserve rain and waste water, plant our garden and reduce water usage. "The average American uses 80-100 gallons of water per day; and while less than half of it will be drunk or used to cook food, chances are that all of it is treated, potable water from the municipal water provider. What many people don’t realize is that it’s fairly easy to implement simple systems for recycling and reusing water on your own property, drastically decreasing the demands on shared supplies, and in turn, reducing your water bills."
