Showers can be luxurious and relaxing and, every once in a while, are fine as long indulgences of water-waste. But you don't need that water running the entire time you're showering every time you shower. Turn on the water, get yourself wet enough to soap up, and shut off the water while you shampoo your hair. Turn it on to rinse, and you're done. Think about how much water you're saving! Once you get used to the "navy shower," taking long, luxuriating showers is a nice treat.
I am only one, but I am still one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
--Edward Everett Hale
