Save the planet on the back of an envelope

But what simple things can we all do to save the Earth? So we’re inviting you to tell us how you think we could all be greener and more energy efficient at home, and that includes saving water.” Thanks Star! – Link.

    On the topic of heating no more water than is needed, I’m pretty sure products such as this exist that basically are a separate faucet for extra hot(very near boiling, 190* i think) water.
    My sister had one in an apartment she lived in. I only saw it once, but I’m pretty sure it heated on demand with no reservoir…I could be wrong. I wonder how the efficiency of those compares to other options such as boiling on a stove.
