Q: Cities and businesses on the Peninsula are fighting with the Water District because there''s not enough water. Do you ever do anything to conserve water?
Follow Up: Do you always shower alone?
A: I have a low-flush toilet and a shower that has a special showerhead that restricts the water flow. And when I brush my teeth, I don''t leave the water running.
Alone in the Bath? Yeah, my cat doesn''t like to shower with me.
A: Yes, we do. In conserving water we use cold water for our wash. We also use less water in the cycle. We also have drought-tolerant native plants that are low maintenance.
Share the Shampoo? My shower''s broken now, but on occasion, no we didn''t.
A: I water plants in the morning because the water doesn''t evaporate as much. I also make sure I take a quick shower, and I don''t run the water while I''m brushing my teeth. I''m just real thoughtful about things that don''t have to be running all the time.
O Solo Mio? Not if I can help it.
