Environmentally conscious inventor introduces device to save water amid California drought

By Heyes: (NaturalNews) If every person currently living in California took a five-minute shower as opposed to the average 11-minute shower, the drought-stricken Golden State would save over 200 billion gallons of water annually. And a new device by inventor Ken Wright known as iMShowerSmart makes it easier than ever for people to conserve water, reduce energy costs and ultimately help protect this much-needed resource from running completely dry.

The device works much like a crosswalk light -- it flashes green, yellow and red lights depending upon how it's programmed to notify the person showering when to soap up, when to rinse and when to dry off. The iMShowerSmart is easy to install, and it pays for itself in just a few months of use. Here is what Paula Morreale, Sustainability Coordinator at the University of San Diego, has to say about the device's effectiveness:

"Here at USD, we waste no water by piloting innovative shower timers in residential halls," stated Morreale as she held up an iMShowerSmart during a recent video interview.

iMShowerSmart is self-powering and self-charging: Under ideal conditions, it requires no electricity!

Installing and programming the iMShowerSmart is simple. The device generates its own power using a small, internal mini water turbine. The pressure and flow of water through the device spins this turbine, generating the power needed to run and charge the iMShowerSmart. And if, for some reason, the device runs out of power (which is highly unlikely), it can simply be plugged in via the USB port and loaded with a full 250-hour charge.

It's all part of the "Take Five" initiative, which is encouraging people to cut their shower times and conserve water during this difficult time of persistent drought. Reducing your shower time by just a few minutes can have a significant effect on water conservation, especially when everyone's on board.

"The math behind what shaving six minutes off your shower time is staggering when multiplied just by 1,000 people," stated Wright during a recent talk at the University of Burbank. "That 1,000 people can save almost 5.5 million gallons of water, reduce carbon output from heating that water by 1.4 million pounds of carbon and the monetary savings are on top of that."

"Imagine what the state can do if millions of people take five minute showers?"

"Water and air are the common meeting ground of man," Wright said. "Without them, we perish. Start with water, deeply care about one environmental element: water; preserve it, conserve it. Caring for that one element opens a door to an environmental awakening, a new awareness, and will help usher in an environmental revolution."

"Unless this happens on a grand scale, and soon, environmental trauma of enormous consequence is our future, and quite literally, the human race, as a species, is in danger. Look around you... it's already starting... drought. Drought for the ages. Drought of epic proportions. Stubborn, persistent, long-term drought. iMShowerSmart takes it head on, and says, 'it's up to thee and me.' And oh, by [the] way, it also keeps you from losing money, it's fun, and easy to do."
