This has been an interesting week researching greywater and the impact it has on our environment. Our households use a lot of clean water that could be recycled from within the home. Old water from our toilets, washers and sinks could be used in a number of different ways around the house. To make a change, we have been filling our toilet tank with used water from our showers/baths and it has been really easy to do. Our water to the loo has been shut off all week. This exercise has shown me how silly it is that this greywater is NOT being used around the house.
It almost seems ridiculous that the water from our showers are not moved a few feet to be used in the toilet. Even before the green movement, people were concerned with saving money and it would seem a very easy way to keep a few pennies in our wallets. Obviously, I am thinking about this in retrospect, but this would seem like a change that could be implemented into new construction rather easily. I think I might have an invention on the horizon!
What do I know though, right? Well, I am going to keep on working on my new invention and also thinking of different things I can do with greywater. Let me know your story in the comment area below.
