    What uses less water, a dishwasher or washing by hand?  The answer is clear to see, a dishwasher is the winner.

    Most dishwashers these days are Energy Star certified, the average Energy Star dishwasher uses 4 gallons of water per cycle. The average faucet flows at 2 gallons per minute not to mention the energy impact of heating the extra water. 

    Let's break it down with easy to read bullet points:

    • The average Energy Star certified dishwasher uses 4 gallons per cycle
    • The average water faucet flows 2 gallons per minute
    • The average sink holds 17 gallons of water
    • To successfully wash all your dishes with the same amount of efficiency as a dishwasher you would need wash all within 2 minutes

    Pro Tips to reduce your carbon footprint:

    • Run the “light” cycle when using your dishwasher
    • Turn off the “heated drying” on the dishwasher
    • If you don’t have a dishwasher use half warm/half cold water to soak first and then be mindful of the time you wash dishes in running water
