Save Water: A Shower Curtain That Limits Your Time

August 04, 2015 2 min read

Being mindful not to overuse things is an important trait to have; however, let's face it: most of us like to indulge in things that feel good, including a soothing, hot shower. But with excessive water use being a huge environmental issue as states like California suffer from serious droughts, it's important to put into practice these mindful techniques to ensure we keep up with the times. So where do we start? Textile-based installation artist and educator Elisabeth Buecher came up with an unusual but effective tool: a shower curtain that limits your time to 4 minutes. The shower works by inflating into colorful "spikes" once you reach your time limit. Talk about a shocker to your shower time! The curtain's spikes consume the space of the shower, both reminding you that you're 4 minutes have been reached as well as making it impossible to move about and continue on. Buecher refers to her invention as a "green warrior," and says the idea to create such an out-of-the-box concept came about because she wanted to bring  the environmental issue of excessive water consumption to a forefront. These series of curtains aren't necessarily meant for marketing, however. The point of the project is to inform others that overuse of water is a problem, and that the critical environmental issues surrounding it are very real. It's an artistic way to bring about a topic that needs constant discussion, and a way to provoke other discussions regarding environmental issues as a whole. We should all attempt to save water! How long is your typical shower? Could you cut it off at 4 minutes? Source: Hello Giggles Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
