A good shower is important for many reasons. Among the most obvious benefits are that showers help us avoid unwanted odors and provide a comfortable place to belt out our best Whitney or Josh Groban tune (is that just me?). However, the most overlooked shower element is that they are one of the main fronts on which the water conservation battle is waged.
Of course more direct measures like water-saving shower heads can be put into place, but for our fourth suggestion in the series we’re recommending a simple step you can take to dramatically limit your daily water consumption – digital shower timers courtesy of BigGreenSmile.com.
These little beauties are an easy way to keep track of the amount of time you spend in the shower. Shortening your shower by one or two minutes can save roughly 150 gallons a month. That’s simple savings made even easier with the help of a digital shower timer.
Soon enough your showers will be like an exciting race against time. And who knows, maybe you’ll be the catalyst to introduce the shower sprint to the 2012 Olympic Games.
