The best thing anyone can do to conserve water is simply to forgo eating meat. Cut just one pound of beef from your diet, and you save 2,500 gallons of water. That's as much water as you'd save by skipping your next 250 showers (assuming you shower for 5 minutes, 2 gals/min), and you'll surely smell a lot better. If you go vegan or vegetarian, even for just a few days, you will literally save tons and tons of water.
