We are very earth conscious at work and, therefore, share a green tip at our monthly meetings. This month's tip was offered to help us reduce our water usage.
The recommended time in the shower is 3 minutes. To help you spend the recommended time in the shower, set an egg timer for 3 minutes and then finish up when it rings.
I have a stopwatch feature on my phone so I have been timing myself and here are the results:
Day 1: 3:10
Day 2: 4:05
Day 3: 9:10 (Hair washing! takes so much longer - but I only wash my hair every three days so I feel it evens out)
Day 4: 2:35
I was impressed with myself. I can work on the hair washing days - 9 minutes is long but I have a TON of hair. Seriously.
To assist you in your water conservation efforts, buy a cute egg-timer here.
My amazing friend KZ bought me an egg-timer that I LOVE. He looks like this but yellow.
