Stop the shower while washing

It’s a great way to save water and energy: Simply stop the shower while you wash your hair and your body. The less (warm) water you use, the lower your carbon footprint, and energy bill. It’s a small habit that makes a difference over time.

Understandably, the way we shower has become a habit or even a sacred ritual. So changing it up might be tough. If this is not for you, don’t worry, there are many other steps that have a much bigger impact.
