Follow the saying "if it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown, flush it down!" We personally attest that this concept can prevent 50-75% of flushes.
Afraid to take such a bold risk? Follow these tips: 1) Communicate the importance to everyone in the household, so there is no confusion on why others aren't flushing. 2) Keep track of the number of flushes and no-flushes, as a reminder of how much water is being saved 3) Leave an air freshener in the bathroom, if odor is a concern. 4) Flush when company comes over, if you are concerned by what they might think (or explain it to them, maybe they'll agree it's a good idea).

"I love this idea! It works! Even when I was young, my mom applied this concept to our house. Even during the hottest Florida summers, the thermostat never went below 78...I love having the windows open as much as possible anyways...I love the fresh air and hearing the birds."
