Long, hot showers are an alluring way to wake-up and prep for the day—and a fast and easy way to send gallons of water straight down the drain. Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons of water per minute—or 25 gallons in one 10 minute shower. At this rate, in one year over 9 thousand gallons of water are used on showers alone—and that is just one person.
Our goal is for 500 people to pledge to cut 20 minutes off their cumulative shower time during a two-week period, saving 25,000 gallons of water.
Pledging to reduce your shower time is an immediate way to conserve our Great Lakes. Take this pledge below to see how your simple action can add up to big savings.
Thank you for your commitment to reduce your shower time and save our Great Lakes!
