How to save water and electricity in our homes ?

Saving Electricity
  1. Turn off lights when not in room and switch incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescent light bulbs. 
  2. Insulate the water heater to avoid heat loss in winter.
  3. Buy Energy Star-rated appliances to replace inefficient ones like refrigerators and air conditioners.
  4. Turn the air-conditioner off and run ceiling fans or energy efficient standing fans to help circulate the cool air.
Saving Water
  1. Turn off the water while you brush your teeth or shave.
  2. Repair any plumbing leaks. 
  3. Water plants early in the day so more water soaks into the soil; at midday, you will lose a lot of water to evaporation.
  4. Wash only full loads of laundry and full dishwashers. 
  5. Use rain water harvesting system to conserve rain water.
