Earth Month Tip: Take a shower

2014 April 9

Try a short shower instead of a bath. Taking a shower uses much less water than filling up a bathtub. In fact, a shower only uses 10 to 25 gallons of water, while a bath uses up to 70 gallons! To save even more water and energy, keep your shower under five minutes long —try timing yourself next time you hop in!

    These are great tips! I’m happy to know that I’m doing something to contribute to a greener Earth. I’m hoping to get a bike very soon, as well, to take to work. I’m looking forward to the local tree planting event at Earth Day this year. Thiago
