Okay I feel up to an eco-tip now. Based on my own experience.

Eco-tip: How fast does your shower run? Put a bucket under it and run for one minute. Measure out the bucket with a gallon milk jug (use the water for plants or save in another bucket). If yours runs faster than about 3 gallons per minute, invest in a low-flow one with aeration. You'll hardly feel the difference and you'll save a LOT of water.
