  • I suppose the most obvious (and it doesn't need saying, does it?) is never to buy bottled water.

    ooh but the tap water here is so skank even when I use Brita filters I can't stand the taste :( I don't know why because when I lived a mile away in old rented house I really liked the tap water and didn't even filter it! I buy Aldi mineral water - is that very not green? surely better than buying coke et al?

    Just a thought... if you are on a water meter water hippos in the cistern can save money and water. I've got 2 in my loo at the moment - both free from united utilities.

    Good point. The Anglian Water website are also giving Freddie Frogs for free - just requested mine.

    I'm hunting down a water butt now to collect rainwater for garden use.
