• Mellow out with music. Supply a waterproof MP3 or CD player for the shower area.
• Buy eco-friendly soaps and shampoos for a luxurious scrub that won’t harm vegetation and wildlife or clog drains.
• Control water runoff. Cover the floor with rocks, bricks, or stones. If the shower is elevated, make sure water drains through floorboards onto sandy or quick-draining soil.
