Saving Water

People who build green buildings understand how important it is to conserve or save our fresh water. They install or put in special low-flow toilets, showerheads and faucets that use less water and save money on the water bill. Some green buildings even have a system that recycles water! For instance, instead of letting water go down the shower or kitchen drain to be carried away by city pipes, the used water or gray water gets collected and used to water the garden.
