简单快速节约用水的方法

Water is a precious resource that we take for granted on a daily basis.  Without water, we would not be able to grow the food we eat, to sustain ourselves or the ecosystem.  Water consumption can be reduced in almost every part of our daily lives.  With a few easy, painless tips, we will be on our way to living a life that is both sustainable for the environment and for ourselves.
水是每天理所当然的珍贵资源。没有水,我们就不能种植我们所吃的食物,不能维持我们的生命或生态系统。我们每天各个方面的用水都可以减少。通过一些简单、不费力的方法,我们就可以过上对环境和对自己可持续的生活。

-Only run the dishwasher (or washing machine) when it is full.  Running it only half full can waste up to 1,000 gallons of water a month.  Don’t have a dishwasher? Fill one sink up with soapy water for the dirty dishes, and the other sink with clean “rinse” water to wash away the soap.  Never let the sink run when washing dishes because it wastes more water.
-当洗碗机放满东西时才运作。如果洗碗机只有一半东西时就运作,每个月会浪费1000加仑水。没有洗碗机?把一个水槽装满肥皂水清洗脏盘子,而另一个水槽装干净的水除去肥皂。洗盘子的时候不要一直开着水槽里的水,因为这样会更浪费水。

-After boiling a pot of pasta or vegetables, save the water in a container in the fridge for later use.  This water can be used several times to boil pasta or vegetables.  Once you are ready to discard the re-used boiled water, let it cook in the fridge and water your plants with it: it will be full of nutrients and none of the water from the cooking process will be wasted.
-煮熟一锅面条或蔬菜后,把水储存在一个容器里放在冰箱里以备下次用。这些水可以用来煮面条或蔬菜几次。一旦你要倒掉这些重复使用的沸水,让它们放在冰箱里冷冻,然后给植物浇水:这样的水富含营养而且蒸煮过程没有水被浪费。

-The same goes for rinsing lettuce and other vegetables: rinse it in large container and re-used the water to water plants or even your grass outside.
-清洗生菜和其他蔬菜也一样:在大容器里清洗,然后重复使用这些水浇灌植物,甚至外面的草地。

-Before watering your lawn, check the weather forecast to avoid pre-watering your lawn before a storm.  Also, adjust the sprinklers to get the maximum use:make sure they are aimed at the grass and no against the wall of your house, a fence or the road.
-在浇草地之前先查看一下天气预报,避免在暴雨前还提前灌溉。同样,调整洒水装置使其得到最大限度的利用:确保水对准草地而不是屋子的墙壁,栅栏或马路。
