Do you ever think about water and how it is the basis of all life? Take a moment and recall the last time you sipped a glass of water, enjoyed a juicy piece of fruit, or admired the growing plants in your home. If you’re lucky, you have water at your disposal - whenever and wherever. But the reality is, access to clean water is a luxury that we often take for granted. Fresh water is a finite resource and one that we’re running out of. Over the past few years, I’ve become aware of the immense role water plays in my day-to-day live and have become more conscious about my part in conserving it.
Recently, I was introduced to Nebia, a San Francisco start-up that wants to fundamentally change the way we interact with water, starting with the shower. If you haven’t heard of them, go check out their Kickstarter campaign for the second-generation of their award-winning shower. I was shocked to learn that the Nebia Spa Shower cuts the amount of water you use per shower by more than half. I couldn’t believe it! The average American uses 20 gallons of water per shower but with Nebia you use only 7. Nebia has already saved 100 million gallons of water so far and is on track to save 1 billion by 2021. If you care about the environment and water conservation like me, it’s a no brainer.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit Nebia’s headquarters in San Francisco and get a behind-the-scenes look at their patented water-saving technology. After the friendly Nebia team gave me a tour, they asked if I’d like to take a shower. I figured, why not? I was really curious to experience it for myself.
They led me to their Show(er) room and I found myself face-to-face with the Nebia Spa Shower. I was immediately taken back by the beauty and simplicity of its design. As soon as I stepped in, the noise of the outside world faded away. It was then that I remembered what Nebia co-founder Philip Winter had said -- Nebia envelops you in millions of warm micro-droplets and creates this warm fog around you, giving you the best of a shower and steam room experience. Turns out, he was totally right! The best I can describe it is to say it was like showering under a waterfall. I’m forever grateful for this experience and am so excited to have my very own Nebia Spa Shower in my home
If you could save 65% of water AND have a better shower experience, would you? We currently live in a world where our natural resources are under attack, overused, and severely under-appreciated. The next time you take a sip of water or enjoy a hot shower, take a moment to stop and appreciate water because, without it, we could not survive. Then think about ways you can reduce your water consumption. You could take shorter showers or, better yet, invest in a shower system that saves a whole lot of water. (Bonus: Nebia will save you $ over time by reducing your water and heating bills. You can calculate your savings here.)
Trust me, if I wasn’t excited about this product I wouldn’t stand behind it – or stand under it! Nebia 2.0 just launched on Kickstarter in February and it is hotter, stronger, and better than ever. Join me in saving water and in conserving our planet’s precious resources and get yourself a Nebia Spa Shower!
