To save water we need to think not just about the water we use directly, for drinking and cleaning in our home, but also to become more aware of how water is used to make the food we eat, the products we use and to generate the power for our lights and stoves.
One of the top ways to prevent your household from using extra water, is to re-use grey water.
WHAT IS GREYWATER?
Greywater is defined as untreated household wastewater that has not come into contact with toilet waste.
Greywater comes from baths, showers and bathroom hand basins. Laundry water from washing machines can also be re-used if environmentally friendly detergents have been used.
