Take the shorter shower challenge

We’re all looking for ways to save at the moment but many of us don’t realise that almost 40% of all the water we use at home is in the shower. That’s why having shorter showers not only helps reduce your water usage, but also the amount of energy you're using to heat the water as well.


Take the shorter shower challenge and set your timer to just 5 minutes max a day. Showering for just one minute less saves around 10 litres of water and around £8 in energy costs per year - this could help save each household an over 28,000 litres of water and £100 in energy and water every year.


Also, cutting our showers to just 5 minutes could save our region nearly 200m litres of water every day - that's like leaving the tap running for 60 years. And why not use our ultimate shower playlist it’s packed with songs that are around 5 minutes long. It’s perfect for powering through a quick and efficient shower, saving water and energy.
