EAB: What You Can Do: "Green Tips" and "Green Facts"
- Check out your bathroom. Use low-flow faucets, showerheads, and toilets.
- Limit the length of your shower. Even better, take a "navy shower", shutting off the water while soaping up and shampooing.
- Don't run the water when brushing your teeth.
- Do full loads of laundry and set the rinse cycle to "cold".
A leaky faucet can waste up to 20 gallons of water per day, and a leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons a day. A family of four using low-flow showerheads instead of full-flow models can save about 20,000 gallons of water per year.
Delanco's DROP Bags Program
Miranda Pawline, a Delanco resident and NJ Pre Teen Sweetheart, has implemented the DROP (Delanco Recycles Our Plastic) Bags Program. There is a container inside of the Municipal Building and the Delanco Public Library where you can drop your used plastic bags to be recycled rather than going to the landfill. Thanks Miranda!
