Now here is an interesting idea!

It may be possible that I have seen it all now! Can you even imagine a world where you wash your hands in the toilet? This idea must have been thought up by a six year old boy, who was caught washing his hands in the back of the toilet!

Now when you are done laughing, ponder this idea for a minute: this is genius! You wash your hands and the water goes into the toilet and you use that for flushing! Genius! I am not sure the dog, who uses the toilet as his personal water fountain, will like it but it is a good way to save water! And because the water in the bowl that is left behind is semi-used, it will prompt me to keep the lid closed.

But why stop there? Why can't we funnel the shower water to a tank in the basement and use that to water the lawn? And run the gutters into the water supply and use that for taking a shower? Or simply move the shower onto the deck and use rainwater captured by the sky to take a shower and then the water can be used to wash the car and then water the yard? Brilliant!

Tonight at happy hour I bet I can (with the help of a few friends) dream up all sort of uses for recycling things!

Well, I made a small step in that direction by having the effluence from my sump pump piped onto a flower bed.

Ironically I believe this kind of recycling will be more popular in the future. It makes good environmental sense.

My daughter has one of these in her 1st floor bathroom. She converted her pantry into a bathroom and this was all the room she had. I think it is a great idea! Of course the kids love it and it encourages them to wash their hands.
