Save water by shrinking your shower

Save energy by shrinking your shower | Energy and water saving make the switch

Don’t stay in the shower for longer than necessary. Reduce the amount of water you waste by cutting down on your shower time. The average shower uses 35 litres of water and lasts around 5 – 6 minutes. Akiming to cut this down to 2 – 3 minutes, which should be plenty fo time to to wash your body, could halve the time, water and energy used while showering.

Also consider whether you really need a shower. If you washed the night before, is a shower in the morning that necessary? Try using a flannel to wash some areas of your body and, if a shower wakes you up in the morning, splash cold water on your face to help you feel more alert; a trick that will also improve your skin.

If you wash your hair in the shower, try to get into the routine of switching the shower off while you apply the shampoo and condtioner to your hair. This simple change could save you 6-8 litres of water per shower - nearly 3000 litres a year if you wash your hair daily.

The first Hampshire Water Festival took place in August 2015 in Winchester and was a great success with 10,000 visitors.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire. Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers. It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
