Video Features the Five Minute Shower!

Why wouldn’t you want to save water? That question forms the basis for this video produced for HRWC’s Saving Water Saves Energy Program by Skyline High School seniors Carson Alexander-White and Marissa Relitz.

The video serves as the students’ senior capstone project for the Communication, Media, and Public Policy Magnet program at Skyline.  Led by teacher Pat Jenkins, CMPP students learn how to identify and solve some of the major problems of the day and use a variety of professional quality multimedia tools to inform the Ann Arbor community about issues that mean the most to them. Alexander-White and Relitz worked with HRWC through their last trimester to study the water-energy nexus and how saving water saves both energy and money and reduces CO2 emissions. As part of the project they surveyed their peers about what might persuade them to take shorter showers or save water in everyday activities.
