Tika Sumpter is a new beauty on the scene and the industry is starting to take notice. The Body Shop tapped the Gossip Girl and The Game actress as a spokeswoman for its “Three Minute Shower Challenge” campaign which aims to promote water conservation.
Long warm showers are some of the favorite parts of my day so getting in and out in three minutes will surely be a challenge, but it is worth it when you hear these facts:
- The average person uses 70 gallons of water while taking a ten-minute shower which equals 1,120 eight-ounce bottles of water
- The 70 gallons from that ten-minute shower could quench your thirst for 140 days if you drink the recommended eight cups of water
- A three-minute shower only uses 20 gallons
Tika feels her new role is important and wants us all to cherish water as she believes we take the valuable resource for granted: “Water is a resource we take for granted, but one we cannot live without.”
