    Default Could You Take A Three-Minute Shower?

    The Body Shop would like you to at least give it a shot.

    The eco-conscious brand issued an "Earth Lovers Three-Minute Shower Challenge" in honor of yesterday's celebration of Earth Day:
    To help time yourself, the company suggests playing a three-minute song and trying to finish by the end. Or, you could always count to 180 slowly.
    Ah, yes. A relaxing shower should ideally involve focused counting and playing "beat the clock" to the tune of a 2:59 minute song. That's the best part!


    In all seriousness, I am well aware of the roughly 70 gallons of water Americans use every time they take a 10-minute shower and yes, that's an insane amount of water waste.


    I've always been someone who takes very brief showers (primarily because I always seem to get very, very bored while trying to take one of those ridiculously long, supposedly relaxing showers you always see women taking in the movies), and I think that challenging people to re-evaluate the amount of time they spend in the shower is a terrific idea.


    Maybe playing "Let's pretend you live in a dorm where thirty girls are waiting to use the shower and you'd better hurry up and get out of there!" isn't the most user-friendly way of getting people to be more eco-conscious, but hey, whatever works.

    I could take a three minute shower if I didn't have to wash my hair or shave my armpits.

    Sailors do even better. 30 seconds to get wet and lathered up, and then a minute of rinse time. Period.

    Yes, I could. I'm in and out of the shower pretty quick.

    Have said this previously, but as kids we were forced to take 4 min showers. My Dad would literally sit with a timer and turn the water off at 4 mins, if you were done or not. By the time I was a teenager, I got it bumped up to 5 (after much discussion) because I had to shave and condition my hair.

    Bottom line: yes, I can. And I still do take quick ones, just not 3 minutes.

    Nope - I have too many things to do in there.

    We have to save water because of the drought. 3 minutes is PLENTY of time. Rinse hair/body, shampoo (leave in), body soap top to bottom, rinse hair/body. Walla.

    Aside from shaving, which takes longer, what do people do in a shower for 15 minutes? In, soap up, wash off, out. Especially if you take a shower every day.

    Its not just 3 minutes showers where water needs to be saved. Dishwashers, washing machines, watering lawns, washing cars.... Its a long, long list.

    Holy shit people watering their lawns for hours on end every day makes me absolutely mental. My next door neighbors are lawn FREAKS (have nothing else to focus on) and I so badly just want to say to them: ITS GRASS. Who the hell cares?

    Watering your lawn seems stupid to me. Complete waste of water. I've never watered the lawn in my life.
