As an Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps has spent much of his life slicing through water. Now, he's doing his best to save it. 

In a partnership with Colgate, Phelps is spreading the word about conservation efforts -- starting in his own home. Besides cutting back on laundry and watering the lawn, he's installed a sticker on his son Boomer's sink that turns red when it's time to turn off the faucet. Phelps spoke with Entrepreneur about his water-saving strategies and why he's frustrated that more people don't prioritize the cause.
