Earth Month Daily Green Tip

Make it a full load!

Run your dishwasher only when it’s full and use non-toxic detergent.

Don’t pre-rinse dishes – tests show pre-rinsing doesn’t improve dishwasher cleaning, and you’ll save as much as 20 gallons of water per load.

When you buy a new dishwasher, look for one that saves water.

Water-efficient models use only about only about 4 gallons per wash.
