Finish partnered with National Geographic to launch “The Last Drop” featuring actor Adrian Grenier, a documentary on how we can conserve water and ensure sustainable water supplies in the future. ​

Watch the trailer and read on for tips on how YOU can save water each day.​

If we all adopt these six simple habits, we can make a huge difference.

Shorten your showers

Try to take a short shower if possible. Half of the water in the shower is wasted while we’re shampooing or washing our bodies, so turn off the water when you’re getting soapy. Also, make sure you have an efficient shower head!*

Save baths for a treat

Think of baths as a luxury rather than a necessity. When you do choose to indulge, stop running the tap when the bath is 3/4 full so you don’t spill when you step in. If you absolutely must have a regular bath, consider a smaller tub.*

Flush a little less

The toilet flush counts for a massive 30% of total household water usage. Remember the phrase, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow.” It can’t hurt. An efficient toilet can save your family up to 13,000 gallons per year.*

Kill the kitchen faucet

When washing your vegetables, utensils or dinnerware, do not let that faucet run! It is actually more hygienic to soak veggies rather than washing them under running water. An aerator on your tap is also an easy way to lower your flow. Using low-flow faucets save around 700 gallons per years.*

Be mindful in the bathroom

Be aware when you are washing, shaving, scrubbing your face or brushing your teeth. The water does not need to be running then. Automated taps that run only when your hand is under the faucet are another option.*

Do less laundry

Unless you are incredibly active, most clothing will last for several wears before needing to be washed. When you do run a load, make sure not to under or overfill your machine. Front load washers can use up to 70% less water than top load washers.*
