Scrape rather than rinse your plates today. it saves water
Today’s action step of scrape not rinse, is a second step of reduction when it comes our cleaning habits with dishes. Our first, only running a fully loaded dishwasher, was our action step from March 3rd.
Scrape your dishes and let the dishwasher fulfill its purpose and recall that today’s efficient models use less than 5 gallons per wash. Compare that a study conducted by the University of Bonn in Germany showing on average 27 gallons of water consumed by hand washing 12 place settings.
