What would you do with an extra day and a half?

The four top-flight rugby clubs in Wales have pledged to cut their shower time down to 4 minutes to save water and energy while tackling climate change at the same time.

You could have an extra day and a half of free time a year if you cut your showers from 10 to 4 minutes.

The average person uses around 150 litres of water a day. But a 4 minute shower only uses 30 litres.
