A mist shower is a simple adaptation you can make to any shower to drastically reduce the water and energy useage, while still getting just as clean!

NASA developed hand held mist showers originally in the 1970’s.

We looked at the work of designer Jonas Gorgen to find out how to make ours. Find out more information here.
