Cleaning the fish tank? Use the water for non-edible plants instead of throwing away the water. The fishy water is actually a fertilizer rich with beneficial bacteria, potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen.


When refreshing a pet’s water dish, give the stale water to plants or trees instead of washing down the drain. Leftover drinking water, and ice cubes can be given to plants too.
