eco shower power
"Jun Yasumoto’s Phyto-Purification Bathroom is a conceptual system that turns your shower into a mini-ecosystem. The design is a clever take on the water-saving conundrum that relies on plants to do its dirty work. Water from your shower travels to a series of rushes, reeds, hyacinths, and lemnas—all plants that are known to absorb bacteria, metals and other waterborne particles. A carbon filter captures any particles that remain, and the filtered water is then recycled back into the shower system for use."- trendhunter
The idea seems all green and good for mother earth, but I can't help thinking mildew, lots and lots of mildew.
