April is Earth Month and ICF International provide easy suggestions to do your part to save the planet like:

 

Make it a full load.

 

Run your dishwasher only when it’s full. Don’t pre-rinse dishes (tests show pre-rinsing doesn’t improve dishwasher cleaning) and you’ll save as much as 20 gallons of water per load. When you buy a new dishwasher, look for one that saves water. Water-efficient models use only about 4 gallons per wash. Learn more about using water wisely via EPA’s WaterSense program.
