Showering With a Partner: A Great Way To Conserve Water

water conservationHello Eco Friendly Bay Area.  Here is a fun sustainability tip that all of us in a relationship can benefit from.... well, some of us.

For those of us living with our significant other it can often feel as if the only alone time we get alone is while we are in the bathroom.   But, if you are in a relationship where you are actually ok with sharing that bathroom time, consider showering with your parter.

Not only is this a fantastic way to get close with your beloved, but it is a great way to conserve the amount of water you use.  Plus, you use less energy heating your water, thus saving money on your energy consumption.

The skeptic would say that showering two at a time takes longer and may end up using the same amount of energy, but I can tell you from experience that it does not.  In fact, I end up spending less time in there because I don't just sit under the running hot water meditating.  If I did that, the my girlfriend (being out of the hot water) would get cold.  And nobody wants a cold girlfriend.

So by showering together, we conserve double the amount of water and energy we would have used had we showered individually and we get to spend some more quality time together.  Pretty cool that by taking showers with our beloveds we can help conserve the Earth's resources.
