It’s no secret that Perth, like most of Australia, is feeling the effects of a changing climate.
Knowing this and considering how important water is to our unique WA lifestyle, A bunch of local Perth musicians have come together to create a song that helps us all do our bit to save water.
Not since 1988 have we had a reason to sing in the shower until now… you all remember the song.
Fast forward to 2018 some 30 years later and we will be singing in the shower for a completely different reason.
Kav Temperley from Eskimo Joe has enlisted some of WA’s top local artists to bring us a new shower song. These artists have come together to communicate to WA how important – and easy – it is to keep your showers waterwise.
Almost one-quarter of Perth’s household water is used in the shower, so being able to cut down shower times by just 2 minutes can result in up to a 30% water saving in shower use.
Helping our environment and of course helping your wallet.
Simply pop The Shower Song on at the start of your shower, sing along, and make sure you’re out before it’s finished.
