It’s the first simple device ever created to let you know when you’ve been in the shower too long!

shower-saverThe ShowerSaver is the first device ever created to let you know how long you have been in the shower and how many gallons of water you’ve used, allowing you to make the green decision every time you shower.

Why choose the ShowerSaver?

The ShowerSaver was designed with you in mind. We realize that for many people, their daily shower is more than just a chore, it is a place to relax, unwind, or for some of us, a place to belt out some tunes. Unlike other products, the ShowerSaver will never cut off your water flow and won’t produce annoying sounds or flashes of light, it simply provides you with the information you need to be more aware of your impact, allowing you to make the green decision. Simply put, the ShowerSaver puts the power in your hands.

Water Facts

The earth has A LOT of water. In fact, roughly 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. But what most people don’t know is that only 2.5% of this is fresh water, and of that 2.5%, only 1% is readily available for consumption.  While the average American only needs to walk a few feet to get to a fresh water source, a rural African woman may need to walk up to 10 miles to access clean water. Think how much water you would have to drink just to stay hydrated for that trip!  As a result, the average person in developing countries uses 2.5 gallons per day versus over 100 gallons for Americans. Imagine using up your full days’ worth of water in the first minute of your shower?
