Saving our Planet, one "little" step at a time

Thought for today.  Most everyone showers.  Have you considered a low-flow shower head?  They still produce excellent water pressure while using less water.  I have heard (but haven't bought) of one that also aerates the water.  A low flow shower head is a very cost-effective way to help conserve our water.

Do you turn of the water when you soap up?  Studies have shown that that little step can save twenty-five to thirty-five percent of the water you consume while showering. Some shower heads have a convenient lever to shut off water flow.

And saving that water has a far an even greater total conservation effect when you consider the overall environmental cost.  By that I mean the energy cost of bringing the water to your home and the energy cost of treating the water (if you are not on a septic system).

If you haven't already done so, make the commitment to buy and use a low flow shower head.

If you you don't already do so, consider turning off the water when you soap up.

If we all do a little more, we can have a large impact on saving our planet =)
