As UK households brace themselves for surging inflation, many families are looking for ways to cut expenses and save money.
Rising energy prices, fuel costs and national insurance tax are all contributing to what could be a challenging and expensive year ahead. Showery, a startup in Bristol has come up with an idea that can help many Brits to save money on their utility bills amid the cost-of-living crisis.

Driven to make a change, Showery have made a range of showerheads that transform the way you shower. The Tiktok-approved showerheads are designed to save water, with micro-holes that boost water pressure and an innovative start/stop button that helps reduce water wastage. Not only does this reduce water consumption and enhance your shower experience but it also reduces your water, electricity and gas bills, so you can stop unnecessarily paying more on bills each month.
Showery’s affordable shower head can be installed in seconds using no tools, so it’s an easy update for renters and homeowners endeavouring to cut their costs in 2022 and beyond.
What can you do to save water?
There are a lot of ways in which we can save water, by simply making conscious tiny amends in our daily lives at home:
- Keep your shower to four minutes long
- Make sure your dishwasher is fully loaded before putting it on. And the biggest surprise - you don’t need to rinse your dishes before loading them!
- Use a watering can instead of a hose or sprinkler to water your garden and plants
- Use water from your paddling pool to refresh your flower beds and garden, and don’t just tip it away.
- Basic but again, turn off the tap when you clean your teeth. A running tap uses up to nine litres of water a minute.
- If possible, take a shower instead of a bath. A five-minute shower uses about 40 litres of water. This is about half the volume of a standard bath.
- Invest in eco products that help you to save on bills and energy consumption.
We have created a range of eco-friendly showerheads to help you access an enjoyable shower while being responsible for your environment. Our shower heads consume less water by delivering it at high pressure. This means you clean more while using less. Our feature of an instant start/stop button helps in reducing wastage by only spraying when needed.
Why is reducing water consumption important?
Water is one of the most essential needs of our daily lives. We use it so much that we often forget about its existence, and the need to save it. Being water efficient isn't just going to reduce our bills, it can also help communities and wildlife to thrive and reduce our carbon footprints.
According to UNICEF, the groundwater in our world is depleting and there might not be enough for all of us for long. The need for water consciousness is much more urgent than we would like to believe. Here are 5 eye-opening facts:
Remember we don’t just drink it - it goes in the making of food, paper, clothes, pretty much everything.
We may take clean water for granted but many people don't have access to safe drinking water.
We need some major changes to save our planet within the next three years. It’s not too much to say that we need to start thinking about it every day.
Only 180 litres of these are for physical use and the rest are hidden away in the products we use, who would’ve thought?
Groundwater is the invisible resource that we keep exploiting. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis.
As a brand, we’ve collaborated with WaterAid and actively donate from our profits to make clean water accessible for all.
