    On the 22, 23, 24, and 25, I either took a five minute shower or lower. And also powered down my computer.

    I took a very short 3 minute shower and I met my goal for tonight. I also am about to power down my computer for the night.

    Everyday when I'm home from school, I always remember to power down my computer.

    For the past three to four days, I haven't even taken a shower over five minutes.
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    If you take shorter showers, than you can easily save fresh water. Thats why I chose 5 minute showers.
