Install a dual-flush toilet

All our buildings are supplied with drinking water, yet only 1% of the water treated to those standards is actually drunk. A dual-flush toilet can reduce the use of potable water for non-potable actions. A dual-flush toilet has two buttons-use a full flush for solids or a reduced amount of water to flush liquids.

Look into replacing your toilets with dual-flush versions. Dual-flush fixtures can allow you to reduce your household water consumption by half.
