How fast can you get in and out of the shower? By being mindful of how long we keep the shower running, we can help save a lot of water and energy.

Did you know a shower consumes approximately 62 litres of water, and a bath consumes around 160 litres. A shower is the most efficient way to get clean – the shorter the shower the greener the shower! To save water you can turn the tap off when soaping and turn it back on to rinse. There are even specially designed shower heads that cut water usage in half by restricting water flow.
