In a corporate environment, the water bill can be a real nightmare, especially when you think about the fact that the price of water is increasing every year*. As a small business ourselves, we know that reducing our water consumption was cost savior for us. Want to know about how we improved water efficiency in our building? Here are some simple water conservation tips for your corporation to help you save money while saving the planet!
1. Use water-saving taps
People forgetting to turn off the taps is one of the most common ways to spend a lot of cash on water. Switching from traditional to automatic sensor taps which are only activated when they recognize hands underneath is a very simple way to make sure the bathrooms of your building do not become a source of financial distress!
2. Low Flush Toilets
Another equipment that increases your water bill is the toilets. Did you know that each time someone flushes the toilets, they actually use between 10 and 20 liters of water? Makes you think about how much could be saved here, right? One of the most efficient methods of making buildings water-efficient is to adopt low flush toilets which can save by up to 50% of their water consumption by using only 6 - or 3 with the reduced flush option - liters of water.
3. Catch Rainwater

However in some countries, you may have to pay taxes if you have a water tank, so check the legislation where you live. But even if your country has such a policy, collecting rainwater can help you save as much as 40% of your water consumption. Plus if you think about taking care of your landscape with rainwater, studies have shown that plants actually prefer rainwater**!
