Step 1: Lather Up
First jump in the shower and turn the water on. Once you're all wet turn the water off. Now take your soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. and lather up.
Step 2: Rinse Off
Now that you're all sudsy turn the water back on, rinse off, and you're done. Get out of the shower, dry off and you're now ready for the day know that you just helped save the environment!!!
Step 3: Point of This
By turning the water off while you soap up you save a lot of water from going down the drain. Showering like for a whole year can save 56,000 liters of water. That is a lot of water. Considering the average American family has 4 people showering like for a year as a family would save over 200,000 liters of water each year!!! If you think about it it makes sense, why leave the water running when you don't need it. So if you want to save money, and the environment take a navy shower.
