Water conservation is an extremely vital part of the green movement that is taking place in our society. The basic principle is, to never leave the water running, like while washing hands or brushing your teeth.

Now, with this clever bathmat from the student-staffed Samsung Design Membership, there doesn’t have to be a consistent flow of water in order to clean yourself. The mat has sensors that can detect when the user is under the shower head looking for water, or slightly stepped back soaping up.

This bathmat is meant to be connected to your shower's water supply so that it can turn off the water while you're soaping up. What a great way to begin conservation and environmental thoughtfulness.
