On Tap: Getting Savvy About Saving Water With Bigelow Tea
Tuesday, 28 January 2014
Pour, steep, stir … repeat often. We’re guessing you appreciate your daily cup of Bigelow Tea as much as we do. So let’s take a moment to recognize the major role water plays in making your favorite brew. Without H20, your tea bag is, well, a bag of leaves in need of some love. Thankfully, there are a few super-easy ways to conserve water, ensuring that there will always be enough for your mug and the rest of the planet, too!
Some conservation tips are familiar but worth repeating. For starters, turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth and while scrubbing the dishes. But here’s something you may not know: if you cut your daily shower by just one minute, you could save 1,000 gallons of water a year! Seriously. Then there’s your toilet. It might have “silent” leaks from worn hardware, dripping away several gallons a day. Who knew? Text your plumber, pronto!
