Water Recycling System in Your Own Shower

Recycling is a great concept with even greater effects. The fact that designers everywhere seem to grow an interest in the field is a wonderful thing. This revolutionary concept proves that with hard work and experience, amazing recycling products can become available worldwide.  Jun Yasumoto, Vincent Vandenbrouk, Olivier Pigasse, and Alban Le Henry created this sustainable shower that can filter the water that you use while showering and make it drinkable again. This is possible due to some special plants that “feed of” substances like those that exist in soap and shampoo. Here are some more words from the designers: “Using a natural filtering principle called phyto-purification, the bathroom becomes a mini-eco-system by recycling and regenerating the waste water. With this project, we tried to combine the pleasure of taking a shower with the satisfaction of recycling water. We wanted the recycling process to actually interact with the use of shower.”- via

    I wonder what the advantage is of having only a shower that’s recycling water rather than the whole house? Or is this just for people that are renting. I don’t know, but seems to me an enormous amount of effort and energy going into the construction of something with neglgable net results on the back-end. And where does the recycled water return too?

    this would be great, though a lot of “green” homes are using greywater reclamation systems for things like shower water, and that which has drained from the sinks in the house. often it’s piped into a rooftop garden or a rain barrel. :)

    If you live where water is supplied by aquifers that are replenished naturally, there is no water shortage, and no need to conserve. #urbanblight
