Prompt: Daily water conservation tip

If you’re like most people, you are used to taking short showers, letting the water run until it’s cold, then splashing it on your face and body. This habit of showering and washing with water that is too cold can waste a lot of water. Here is a simple water conservation tip: Follow these steps to conserve water in your shower:

1. Turn off the water when you are finished showering.

2. Use only as much water as you need to wet your hair, body, and soap.

3. Spend a few minutes washing your hair and body with a mild soap, using only enough water to cover your skin.

4. Turn on the water only when you are ready to rinse off.

5. Run the water for a few seconds to cool it, then turn it off.
