A Shower That Uses Waste Water to Grow Plants and Recycles the Rest



Still in the concept stage, the Phyto-Purification Bathroom and Shower would make your bathroom more environmentally friendly:

Using a natural filtering principle called phyto-purification, the bathroom becomes a mini-eco-system by recycling and regenerating the wastewater.

The water from the shower and the washbasin is filtered through an organic system before being re-used.

Phyto-purification is a natural water-recycling process which is commonly used in ecological purification systems.

You'd probably have to use somesort of hippy soap that doesn't really work well so that it doesn't kill the plants or the biofilter system.

I'd prefer the simplicity of a greywater system for watering the lawn or garden, too.

There is a cheese factory in Wisconsin that uses a "Living Machine" incorporating plants to treat it's waste water.
