Take Shorter Showers!
How Reduce Your Ecological Footprint
Showers use to much water and energy!
How long are your showers? 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes? Did you know that every minute your shower is running it uses 7 gallons of water? That's like 56 bottles of water down the drain every minute! Did you know that the amount of energy used to heat that water could power 2560 light bulbs. Our showers use to much energy and water so today I'm going to teach you some ways to save water and energy and reduce your ecological footprint.
Take shorter showers
One of the simplest ways you can reduce your ecological footprint is by taking shorter showers. According to a survey conducted by BBC an average shower time is around 20 minutes and during this time you use about 140 gallons of water. If you just take a 10 minute shower rather than a 20 minute shower you are saving nearly 70 gallons of water! By doing this you will greatly reduce your impact on the environment and reduce your ecological footprint.
Take less frequent showers
Finally you can reduce your footprint by taking less frequent showers. Instead of taking a shower everyday you can take a shower every other day and by doing this you may cut your water usage in half which will also reduce your water bill. If you start taking a shower every other day you will be saving on average more than $700 each year. Doing this also leaves more water for other chores around the house like laundry or cooking.
