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 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:
