You know I love water and nearly everything to do with it. And so, today, I introduce a new idea – taking a minute to seriously think about how long you spend in the shower.
How long are your showers? How many gallons of water flow down the drain while you simply enjoy the warmth? How much does it cost you? I bet if you had any idea how much water, and how much money, you were spending, you might change your habits. There is a new little device being made that would tell you exactly that information with an instant feedback loop. It would snap on to your shower, and turn orange and then red when you were in the shower for too long. Paying attention to that little red light would save gallons of water and lots of dollars every month. Take a minute and check out the details HERE.
These guys are still in college, but they have a great team and a great idea. My geeky, water conserving brothers are confident they can pull this together (and know the professors supporting this team). I want to believe that innovations like these really do make a difference, and that is why I am telling you about this.
I rarely plug products here, but this one is worth checking out. They have 10 more days to fund this project, and I think it is awesome. I live in a region that is constantly short on water, and my water bill is my most expensive utility bill every month. I am supporting this project. I hope this project is wildly successful and that one day these smart showers will be commonplace. Will you join me and help make that a reality? Let’s conserve a little water together.
