Take Shorter Showers

Shorter Showers

The average person in the U.S. uses 25,300 gallons of water a year (69.3 gallons daily).

You can help reduce the waste of this precious resource by making simple changes in your daily routine. An average shower uses about 5 gallons of water per minute. If you shorten your shower by 2 minutes, you can cut your water use by 10 gallons. You can further reduce your water consumption by turning the water off while soaping.
