Challenge: Soak up the personal benefits of using less water!
This was by far the best of the challenges. I felt like it's one that I think about more naturally. I tend to not drink as much water as I should (in my water bottle), but I make up for the lack of water here by how much we use to wash our dishes.
As previously stated, I live in a house of sixty people. This means we have a dish sanitizer. It take about a minute and a half per load. We probably wash at least twenty loads a day. That's a lot of water!
It is discouraging to hear "1 billion people in the world don't have access to clean drinking water, Americans are flushing 2.5 trillion gallons a year down the toilet." Crazy!
Thankfully, to make up for the sanitizer I took a five minute shower. Only a rinse off. Good thing it's good for my hair to not wash it every day - taking less time in the shower!
