Carbon Fast for Lent: Shorter Showers

The Third Wednesday of Lent
“Take a shower instead of a bath: you’ll heat less water.”

I’m using the UK version of the Carbon Fast — the Brits love their baths! I suppose the Americanized version would be to ensure one is using a low-flow shower head, and to try to take shorter showers. This is a carbon area where I do not excel. I like the long showers, especially on cold mornings. My plan: I’m going to start timing how long I’m actually in there, and strive to move toward a five-minute shower.
