Find out ways you can save bucket loads of water

In the home

Water is precious, and with around 40 per cent of household water going to our bathrooms, it's important to be more mindful of how we're using it.

In the garden and outdoors

Our beautiful Hunter region also comes with very high temperatures over summer and dry periods throughout the year. But this doesn’t mean our gardens can’t be kept healthy and flourishing, without using excess water!
