Earth Month Tip of the Day: Be sensible.

Today's environmental tip: Be sensible! The Earth might seem like it has abundant water, but in fact only one percent of all water on the planet is available for humans. Buy fixtures and products that are water efficient - you can use less water to get the same job done just as well. When you go shopping, look for the WaterSense label to find water efficient products.

en español: ¡Sea sensato! El Planeta Tierra parece tener agua en abundancia, pero la realidad es que sólo un por ciento de toda el agua en el planeta está disponible para los seres humanos. Aquellos aparatos y productos eficientes utilizan menos agua y realizar el mismo trabajo igual de bien. Cuando vaya de compras, busque la etiqueta WaterSense para encontrar los productos de eficiencia de agua.
