The nature of sustainability is the nature of saving energy and one way to do that is to use less water in our daily routine.

My personal favorite is shorter showers instead of taking baths. I like the idea of a single short shower in the morning or what some may refer to as “navy showers”.A navy shower (also known as a “combat shower”, “military shower”, “sea shower”, “staggered shower”, or “G.I. bath”) is a method of showering that allows for significant conservation of water and energy by turning off the flow of water in the middle portion of the shower while lathering. If I happen to work out or work outdoors for an extended period of time, then I will actually take the time to have a shorter shower in the morning and the night.
