There are many ways to support a healthier, safer Planet Earth. One of the simplest steps you can take is to turn off the tap. It takes no skill or money — it’s all in the wrist!
We often remind patients they should be brushing their teeth for a full two minutes. But can you imagine how much water is lost if you let the tap run during that time period?
According to the EPA, you can save 200 gallons a month just by shutting off the faucet, which makes it easier on your utility bill as well as the planet.
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, please consider turning off the tap! It’s a great lesson for kids too.
