Saving electicity and water

Good ways to save electricity:
* Use ceiling fans instead of the air conditioner
* Turn off lights you're not using
* Turn off your computer when you're not using it
* Don't leave electrical appliances on stand by
* Use solar garden lights

Good ways to save water:
* Install dual-flush toilet
* Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth
* Take a shower instead of a bath
* Collect rain water
* Check your plumbing for leaks
* Don't use your toilet as a trash can
* Water plants less often but deeper

I've personally tried some of these suggestions myself for a week and surprisingly there was about 20% electricity and water use drop during that time.
