Read the text. Select True or False.
Welcome to GreenEarthBlog!
Today is Earth Day, so I wanted to celebrate by telling you about a few things I've been doing lately to
make a difference.
I've been focusing on water lately, and I think these tricks have really helped. One simple trick I did was to
take an old milk jug and fill it full of pebbles. Then I put it in the back of my toilet tank. ''Are you out of your
mind, Carrie?'' I hear you asking. No, I did it so the water in the back of the tank will be displaced, and I will
use less water every time I flush. I've already been seeing a decrease in my water bill! Another thing I did
was to put a different laundry basket in my kids' room with a sign on it that says ''Maybe.'' I told them to put
in clothes that they had worn just once or twice, but they're not sure if the clothes are dirty. Then I can look
through them and decide before I wash them. If they're not really dirty—like, maybe there's just a spot of
toothpaste on a shirt—I spot-clean it, fold it up, and put it back. They love their new ''green'' laundry basket,
and I've been saving a lot of electricity! The final thing is a huge accomplishment. I finally got my husband to
rinse his razor in the sink instead of under running water! Yes, for at least 25 years, this man has been
leaving the water running while he shaves, which drives me nuts! Finally, I figured out how much water he
was wasting every day. Then I multiplied it by 30. You don't want to know how much water he was wasting!
He really felt bad when he actually saw the numbers. Now, he has been filling the sink with a few inches of
water and just swishing his razor in it. I hope these tips can help you, too. Remember, every drop counts!
