I cheated and took a picture of this. Hope I haven’t shown it to you already. It was in our water bill last year and I found it so surprising! G.P.M. stands for gallons per minute. G.A.M. stands for gallons a month. I just like stats and thought you all might find it interesting.
I owe learning this lesson to my sister.

When I lived in D.C., a huge “I will turn it off/ I will unplug it more” campaign splashed the walls of the subway and the glass shelters of each bus stop I passed. I don’t remember who ran the ads, but I remember them five years later. (Now, that’s good advertising.)
I also remember thinking, “I didn’t realize unplugging was such a big deal. Does it really waste that much electricity?”
