In light of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) drought warnings issued for both Morris and Sussex Counties, this is a great time to highlight the fact that October has been designated Shower Better Month by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program.
Showering accounts for nearly 17 percent of residential indoor water use. Taking “better” showers is a simple change that is beneficial not just to the environment, but to your wallet as well. From shorter showers to switching to a WaterSense labeled shower-head, simple steps can lead to significant water conservation as well as big savings! Find out how you can save 3,000 gallons of water this year and enough electricity to power your home for 13 days on this post on the EPA’s Healthy Waters blog.
