Every living thing gets thirsty and this is a benign way of spreading the wealth of water around by merely letting it fall into a small pail or bucket in your shower. So much better then watching it all flow down the drain without nuturing living things. Hopefully, you are using environmentally friendly products in the shower. If not, ensure that the bucket only catches the excess shower head water and not what you showered off your body.
Any pail or bucket will do that you may have around the house. I just found these scrunchy, silicon buckets which are colorful and pliable and children would have fun with them as well. Delightful colors and they fold up. You can order them here.
The water savings may appear small at first, but each bucket you utilize rather then sending it down the drain is a positive use of this greatest resource. It's another one of those small gestures you can do for our mother earth and to live a more gentle life upon her. This post is part of the Genesis Project - Creating change one day at a time.
