Do Your Bit: Showering for Glory

Now we don't think saving our lovely little environment is always laughing matter but we love the comic genius that comes from the Do The Green Thing and this video below is one of its best.

Water is such an important commodity in this world, it is necessary for all life. Here in the western world, we forgot how precious is can be, with our personal taps and instant supply. We have all seen what happens to house plants when they runs dry. Their lack of life and strength. Imagine us like that, and suddenly water importance comes flooding back. And wasting it? Well that's just darn silly

It's silly to leave the tap on whilst brushing your teeth, silly to ignore that dripping tap and it's certainly silly to stay under your shower for 10 minutes, soaking your skin.

The sport of short sharp showers blossomed in WW2 but as we prospered this brilliant sport has been forgotten. But now with the Olympics reigniting our love for sport and our drought only just averted, it's time for a come back. Watch the video to get tips from an expert and give it ago. If you follow the link, you can also download a brilliant poster showing you all the allowed shower positions.

We will be Short Sharp Shower champions again in no time.
