The spread of the Coronavirus has given us all a reason to wash our hands more and, unfortunately, water waste. Lately, it seems like most kitchen waste is water waste. There is a lot of perfectly good drinking water involved in all the hand washing that is going right down the drain, but there are other ways to save water. This is an opportunity to look around your kitchen and figure out other ways to save water to make up for all the (necessary) hand washing required to keep us from getting COVID-19.

Using a dishwasher is a great way to use less water in the kitchen because newer, more-efficient dishwashers use much less water per load than the average hand-washed load. But if you don’t have a dishwasher (hello hand washing) you can still save water, and Bill Miller wants to show you how with his new book “How to Wash the Dishes.” Miller urges home dishwashers everywhere to “Review your water footprint…Every time you wash dishes is an opportunity to practice mindfulness and to reduce waste.” We couldn’t agree more, especially about that water footprint part.
