The charity in question Global Action Plan Ireland,have seemingly issued a plea to the public to take shorter showers in order to cut out excessive water wastage.
Although no official water conservation on showering has come into effect, Global Action Plan Ireland have offered an incentive to the public as they have revealed that they are giving away free shower timers in order to help the ongoing situation.
The environmental charity who say that an average 10 minute shower uses approximately 250 litres of could be reduced to just four minutes in order to conserve water.
They say their timers are designed to actively stop a shower in four minutes and therefore a user could approximately save 150 litres of water by taking less time to have a shower.
