178- Small Action, Big Impact.

To take a comfortable shower, you’re probably mixing hot and cold water to get the perfect temperature.

The hot water presumably comes from an electric or gas heater that sucks energy all day long to ensure that scalding hot water is available on demand.

But scalding hot water is not only a burn hazard; it’s a consistent and persistent source of wasted energy. Unless you’re using the water at its maximum heat, you’re paying to overheat something that is never used while contributing negatively to climate change.

The solution is simple: take one minute to turn your thermostat a couple of degrees.

Finding the smallest actions that can have the biggest impact in perpetuity is something we should always find time to do both in our personal lives and in our mission to fight climate change.
