Wendy's Weekly Water Tip: Savings in the Kitchen

Spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Here are a few tips to help save water:

-Plug the drain or use a pan of water when washing vegetables or washing dishes by hand.

-Instead of using running water to thaw foods, defrost them overnight in the refrigerator or before preparation in the microwave.

-When cooking on the stove, use less water and put a lid on the pot.

-Soak dirty pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape and clean them.

A little effort goes a long way, and these simple tasks can add up to a large savings over time.
