A recent national survey conducted by The Body Shop reveals some interesting findings: like that 69 percent of Americans would reduce shower time to conserve water and protect the environment. Did you know a typical showerhead uses about 7 gallons of water per minute? What about that the average person uses 70 gallons of water in their 10-minute shower? That’s 1,120 eight oz bottles of water. Here are some other stark stats:

• 34% of consumers polled think that a 10-minute long shower wastes only 10 gallons of water
• 67% of consumers polled admit to spending a maximum of 10 minutes in the shower
• 44% of consumers polled would be willing to cut their shower times by one to four minutes
• 53% of consumers polled believe that they could get clean in a three-minute shower

In honor of Earth Day and the launch of The Body Shop Shower Gels for Earth Lovers (a 100 percent biodegradable shower gel line infused with herb and fruit extracts), The Body Shop is challenging consumers to cut down on their shower time to three minutes in hopes of reducing their environmental footprint. Do you dare to take on The Earth Lovers Three-Minute Shower Challenge?
