Collect the cold water of your shower

Vang het nog koude douchewater op

Every time when you turn the shower on and wait for the water to warm, you are letting perfectly good water go down the drain.
If you let the shower run for even a single minute, you are wasting 4 liters or more.

Tip for today:
Use a bucket to catch that water and use it to water your plants.

Last time I posted this, I got a lot of remarks of people who hated the sight of an ugly bucket in their shower. And I totally get this. It is also a point of discussion in our home… So we made a compromise: the bucket is there only on warm days 🙂

You don’t need to wait for the warm water, you can also shower in cold water. Cold showers are very beneficial, they …

  • give you energy
  • boost your immune system
  • improve blood circulation
  • make your skin and hair healthier
  • improve your lymphatic system
  • Improve your physical performance
  • build your willpower
  • make you more alert
