This 1970s button reflects a trend of short, provocative, and fashionable statements seen in advertisements as well as worn on buttons and patches by young adults. The saying "Save Water, Shower with a Friend" continues to be used in the 21st century. In 2012, Axe, the maker of personal care products for young men, launched a campaign urging young adults to conserve water when showering by showering together.
