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 =)
