THE Irish public has been urged to limit how long they spend in the shower in order to preserve water supply during the current heatwave.
Irish environmental organisation Global Action Plan Ireland is appealing to the public to take no longer than four minutes in the shower.
The charity is offering free shower timers to the Irish public, to encourage sustainable shower behaviour.
According to Vanessa Moore, CEO of Global Action Plan Ireland: "We believe that all of us can choose to make a difference to our environment and our pockets with small, realistic changes to behaviour. People are leading busy lives so our organisation offers practical solutions that can be easily done without too much time and effort."
