Tap Project's Good Deed

Growing up, I always made the assumption that (clean, drinkable) water would always be available.  My wasteful habits are astonishing to look back upon: running water while brushing teeth; not turning the hose off while washing the car; and running the kitchen sink while washing dishes.

Green cleaning products: Say good-bye to dirt, not your family's health!
