Who knew there was such a simple hack to save so much water? @hero_to_0 shared a super simple hack with her TikTok followers about how to save hundreds of gallons of water a year.

Next time while you’re waiting for the water in the shower to get hot, catch the cold water in a bucket or large container. She says that this helps them save four liters of cold water every shower.

“If we shower 3 times a week, that’s already 12 liters, and in one year, it’s more than 600 liters,” @hero_to_0 says in the TikTok.

They then transfer the water to second-hand containers where they use a natural filter to improve the taste, and they use it to drink or to cook with.

Try this hack out! It can save you money on your water bill while also helping the planet!
