Small changes add up to larger impacts. You can affect your physique, the environment, the world, your mood- all through minor changes.
Science touches everything we do— including the safety of the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. It affects the kinds of diseases we get and the medicines we use.

If you shorten your shower by ONE MINUTE, you can save 10 gallons of water for every shower. If you shower daily, that’s 70 gallons a week. If you get 1 other person to shorten his/her shower by one minute, that would be 140 gallons of water you would be responsible for saving. Be a planet hero!
