A small change to something you do every day can make a big difference—and save some money too.
(ed:..the clark labour government was much derided at the time with accusations of nanny-statism..one of the manifestations that was accused of this was the clark governments’ promotion of low-flow showerheads..
..the right and their media acolytes were very effective in presenting this exercise in environmental commonsense in terms of nz’ers shivering under trickling showerheads…
..as a p.r./spin-exercise it was a resounding success for the right..
..but as anyone with half a brain and without that ideological-agenda knew at the time…the low-flow showerheads make perfect environmental/economic sense..
..cunning/conniving bastards – those rightwing p.r./spin-trouts..and their media hack/lackeys..eh..?
..anyway..here s the last word on that one..)
But there’s a super simple shower hack that if everyone would do would help save 1.4 trillion gallons of water every year:
Switch to a low-flow showerhead.
The findings are part of a new study conducted by Angie’s List – an online home services marketplace.
Simply by switching from a conventional showerhead to a low-flow showerhead – your daily shower water usage will drop from 20.5 gallons to 5.1 gallons—a savings of more than 15 gallons every day.
That amounts to saving more than 5,600 gallons of water a year—and over 386,000 gallons over your lifetime.
