Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth

Slightly more than 1 person of 3 say they keep the water running while cleaning their pearly whites.

Funny note: gender does not seem to have an impact on this habit, but age does.
Younger millennials, aged 18 to 24, seem to be particularly environmentally-conscious and almost 70% report that they shut off their taps while brushing their teeth.

Did you know that turning off the tap while brushing your teeth could save 13 liters of water a day? If the entire adult population  remembered to do this, we could save mega liters a day (source WWF: https://blogs.wwf.org.uk/blog/green-sustainable-living/top-10-tips-save-water/)

Tip for today and for the rest of your life:
