Good Morning Britain broadcast meteorologist Laura Tobin has penned a brand-new book about small everyday changes we can make as a society to help save the planet
Eco-friendly meteorologist Laura Tobin has revealed that she’s got her entire shower routine is down to a mere six minutes.
The 40-year-old ITV star, who is on a mission to encourage people to make small changes in their everyday lives in order to help save the planet, has also admitted that both she and her husband share bath water with their daughter Charlotte, 4, to reduce water wastage.
Laura shared the candid admission in her brand-new book, Every Day Ways To Save Our Planet.
“So far, I’ve got my ‘full’ shower – wash and condition hair, shave legs and body scrub, down to six minutes,” Laura revealed.
“Reducing your shower time by one minute can save your household up to £120 a year,” the star added.
Laura is able to keep track of the time she spends in the shower by using an incredibly clever trick.
The eco-friendly star makes sure to put on one of her favourite songs in the background – and when it’s done, she knows her time is up.
For Laura, the best song to shower to is Living On A Prayer but non-other than Bon Jovi.
“I sing at the top of my lungs in the shower, and your voice always sounds so much better,” the mum-of-one joked.
“As it turns out, singing to your favourite tune may be the best way to cut down your shower routine,” she added.
Laura added: “Even by shaving off one minute in the shower I’m saving 66.6 litres each time, which will save us money on our water bill – so you can imagine how happy my husband is about that.”
The broadcast meteorologist also saves money by reusing bath water with her husband and daughter.
“Our shower is over out bath, so I put the plug in while showering and Charlotte will sit in the bath and have a splash around.
“Then sometimes, my husband will get in afterwards. I know some people think this is gross, but how dirty do you have to be to leave the water unusable for the next person,” Laura quizzed.
Throughout the pages of her inspiring book, Laura also insisted that she will do everything in her power to make the world a better place for her daughter, and hopes that in time, the damage that has been done to the planet can one day be reversed by the actions of people who take being eco-friendly seriously.
