Tips for Saving Water and Improving the Environment

Manuel Marquez MD

Having worked as a paraeducator for the Ventura County, California public schools, a physician, and a tour director, Manuel Marquez, MD, is experienced in a range of professional fields. Manuel Marquez, MD is also an active philanthropist, donating to such organizations as the Nature Conservancy. 

The conservancy envisions progress toward environmental goals, such as biological diversity and respect and caring for the natural world. With conservation in mind, the conservancy offers these ideas for saving water and keeping it clean:

- Wait until your dishwasher and washing machine are full before running them. You can dry your dishes naturally instead of using the auto-dry feature.

- Showering offers ways to save water - use a timer and take a shorter one. While you’re at it, conserve more water by not running the faucet when you brush your teeth.

- Clean with biodegradable products. Remember, all that water eventually arrives in watercourses and bays.

- Energy generation consumes water. Saving electricity in small ways adds up - the energy used by a single 60-watt light bulb for 12 hours takes four gallons of water to produce. Unplugging chargers also saves.

- For one meal a week, refrain from meat. Because of the need to water the grain that cattle eat, one hamburger takes 600 gallons to process.
