‘Does anyone out there still have shallow baths?’ we asked ourselves idly on a slow day in the ech2o office. 4 years and 2,234 willing punters later we can finally say… read the report and find out! DOWNLOAD
We challenged a bunch of adolescents to dare to take the ech2o shower survey. Most of them whey were too ‘busy’ (loosely speaking) to get round to it. But a whole pile of other people did and we have analysed
Research by ech2o confirms that the practice of estimating water savings in schools assuming three uses of the WC a day results in an overestimation of potential savings (both of water and monetary) by a factor of 2 in primary
Bromley Council approached ech2o with a request for an overview of how efficient their schools were with regard to water usage. The council had data from 2005 to 2007. In the light of a lack of resources to collect more
We asked some people about their shower use, crunched the numbers to see whether the average shower length in the UK really was five minutes and wrote up the results. Then two years later we added a whole pile of new
We ran this particular project in conjunction with Hackney City Farm as part of their 60 steps to 60% initiative. We worked directly with 2,403 pupils and 120 teachers across 10 schools. We estimated that the cumulative saving from pupils
