Project Description

Take shorter showers 

By Lily Cohen, Green Change

Let’s make saving water fun! Pick a song that you really enjoy that’s either 3 or 4 minutes and try to complete your shower before the song ends. This way you know exactly how long you were in the shower and you can save an average of 5 gallons/minute. 

Many water municipalities will provide FREE shower timers to customers. If you live in Marin, another bonus tip is to pick up one of Marin Water’s (MMWD) waterproof 5-minute shower timers at their office.
