Save Water with a Navy Shower: Green Tip

Though the US Navy is surrounded by water, they lack water that is fresh. Therefore, they have to do everything they can to save water, and this includes taking a shower. The Navy shower is a great way to save water at home, and it will significantly reduce your water bill and help the environment.

The Steps for a Navy Shower
