Water conservation is so important for so many reasons, and it’s especially important to reduce our consumption and reuse used water when we can. Here are two really easy ways to save and reuse water in the kitchen you may not have thought of:
When you are draining pasta or vegetables that you have boiled, place your colander over a bowl in the sink when draining and save the starchy water. You can use some of it to make the sauce or as a base for a soup.
Do you clean your vegetables by scrubbing them under a running tap? An alternate way is to wash them in a bowl of water. You can then reuse that water later to water your houseplants or garden.
