By saving around 15 litres per person, per day.
The people of Newmarket are leading the way!
CATCH AND SAVE
A hose pipe uses as much as 15 litres of water every minute. Don’t splash away your cash. Try collecting
rain water for your plants and washing the car with a good old fashioned bucket.
A 10 minute power shower uses 100 litres of water or more, so a more efficient morning could send you
well on the way towards your target
Washing machines use around 70 litres of water per wash, for dishwashers it’s about 15 litres (which
is actually lower than washing up by hand.) Bring this down by using ECO setting and only washing

Grab a bucket
If you have a car, try washing it with 5 buckets or less. Using a hosepipe for just 15 minutes equates to 30
buckets of water.
A relaxing bath is fine every once in a while but as a full bath holds around 80litres of water try filling it
only two-thirds full, instead of to the rim! More than 3x full baths a week can add £50 to your water and energy
bills each year.
If it’s yellow, let it mellow
Ok, we’re not expecting everyone to do it every time, but each time you skip a flush you save 6-9 litres.
don't leave the tap running
When you leave the tap running you lose 6 litres of water per minute and get nothing in return. You wouldn’t
watch money going down the drain would you?
fix that dripping tap
Dripping taps are just money running down the drain. If your tap dripped every second, all day, it would waste
around 17 litres in just 24hours! That’s over 6000 litres and around £30 a year. And what if more than one
tap is dripping?!
