Shorter Shower

Day 17

Ready, Set, Shower!

Did you know that shortening your shower by just two minutes can save about 5 gallons of water?

If you’re really struggling to shorten your shower, put some pep in your step by turning down the heat. A cool shower might be just the motivation you need to get out sooner.

If you’re really feeling bold, try taking the Navy’s lead on showering—after an initial 30-second wet down, turn the water off and lather up. Then, take a minute or two to rinse. It might not be the most luxurious shower, but it’s certainly quick and eco-friendly!
