Green Your Water Use: Shorter Showers
March 22 is World Water Day, so this week’s tips are about how to help protect our world’s water supply.
Tip #4: Clean up your act in the shower.
When you consider that showering uses 7 gallons of water per minute, it starts to hit home why you’d want to turn off that tap earlier. Low-flow showerheads certainly help — they’ll get you down to 2.5 gallons per minute — but the biggest savings occurs when you just jump in, rinse off, then get out. Need more of an incentive? This month, when you confirm to Bolder that you’ve mastered the four-minute shower, you get 50% off at Nature’s Gate and a $1 donation made in your name to WaterAid. Plus (surprise!), you'll save on your electricity bill.
