    I wish there was a way to use my grey water as water for the toilet, it's just so expensive to have something like that put in. I guess the best thing I do is the "if it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down" routine.

    I buy clothing from thrift stores, take low water usage showers, capture rain water for garden and use bath towel more than once before putting into laundry hamper (even at hotels).

    We live in a neighborhood that uses recycled water for irrigation.
