Day 26: Used Shower Water for Plants

Day 26: Used Shower Water for Plants

Gave the plants on my fire escape garden a “shower” this morning. I used grey water from my shower to water them.

The other day I saved a plastic milk jug. I cut off the top of it and put on the floor of the bathtub while I showered to collect the water.

Did you know that 15-25 gallons of water is used in the average shower? Courtesy of The US Environmental Protection Agency.

I wasn’t able to get 15 gallons, but every little bit helps.

What was your simple green act for the day?
