Take a 4 minute shower

Cut the amount of time you run the water in the shower.  You can turn it off while you soap up, or just get focused on the matter in hand.  I favour keeping track of time by singing along with Bob Marley’s One Love (3 minutes 42 seconds) which leaves me 18 seconds to rinse.  If you prefer it, here’s a waterproof 4 minute shower timer. It’s green (which we like!) but other colours are available

Overview

According to our local water supply company, Bristol Water, showering accounts for 1/4 of the average household’s water use, and 1/4 of the average household’s energy bill goes on heating water. So if you shower for less time, shower less often, or reduce the shower flow rate you are saving water, energy, money and carbon emissions.
