College Students Are Taking Short, Cold Showers to Prevent Climate Change

An offshoot of Indiana University’s student government is urging students to take short, cold showers to save the planet.“Living sustainably is one of the easiest things you can do,” the head of the student association’s newly founded sustainability department told the student newspaper. “Turn off your lights, unplug your electric devices, take shorter, cold showers. Maybe some people are deterred by that, but as time progresses these issues are going to become much more pressing and much more internationally important.”Believe it or not, Indiana University isn’t alone; across the U.S., some students are adopting this goosebump-inducing environmental measure.At Dickson College’s Center for Sustainable Living—a 14-person campus residence nicknamed the Treehouse—students are allotted just three minutes of warm shower water a day. One sophomore living there recently gushed that she “couldn’t be more excited for cold showers.”
