It's not easy being green Part 2

Continued from yesterday, these are two more tips on how to save resources and money. These are water based.

Tip #3- set out large bowls or something to gather rain water, and use that to water potted plants or flowers. This is cost-effective and rain water contains lots of things that tap water doesn't....things that plants need.

Tip #4- If you have a lawn to water, run the sprinklers in the morning or evening. Running them during the heat of the day can cause some of your watering to be lost to evaporation...so your money and clean water almost go up in smoke (steam, actually).

Stay tuned for two more tomorrow.
