Small things can really add up, and leaving the sink running while you brush your teeth is one of those small things. A household that leaves the water running during teeth-brushing can waste around 8 gallons of water a day. And if you shave and let the water run, that's another 10 gallons of water. Over time, the average amount of H20 wasted equals about 5,700 gallons a year. Just remembering to turn the tap off can lead to a significant savings in water.
