Use 70% Less Water With Automatic Recycling Shower Did you know that conventional showers send about 19,000 gallons of water down the drain every year? There are lots of ways to reduce personal water consumption. You could take shorter showers, install a low-flow shower head, or use a shower bucket to save falling water for other uses in your home and garden. But these changes require resources, tools, and more importantly, time and effort. What if your shower could just save water automatically? An Australian company is winning awards left and right for a shower design that does just that. CINTEP’s water recycling shower will look and feel just like a normal shower, but will use 70 percent less water than conventional designs. VentureBeat explains: The recycling shower captures used water in a reservoir, which is likely to be built into the base of the shower. Because the water is recycled, the shower puts out a decent flow at the rate of about 9 liters of water per minute, while only actually using about 2.7 liters of water per minute.

This amazing washing machine uses virtually no water Nearly a quarter of the water your household uses goes into your washing machine, and the average family of four will use 12,000 gallons of water a year on laundry. What if there were a way to de-stankify your clothes without draining the ocean? Now there is, thanks to British company Xeros, which has made what it says is the first true leap forward for washing machines in 60 years. Using only a cup of water — about 90 percent less than normal washers — Xeros’ washing machine tumbles clothes with a million little plastic beads that absorb dirt when humidity is present. The recyclable polymer beads are good for about 500 washes. “If all UK households converted to the technology, it would save around seven million tonnes of water per week,” writes the Daily Mail — approximately 1.8 billion gallons, or almost three Olympic-sized swimming pools. Xeros’ washers are commercially available right now and will be available to the public in two or three years.

10 Hot Ideas For A Drought-Resistant Garden Cutting back on water doesn’t mean the end of your garden. You can take many steps to reduce the water needs of your yard without sacrificing beauty or practicality. Try some of these suggestions to make your garden more resilient in the face of drought and summer heat. 1. Prepare your soil appropriately. Organic matter helps your soil retain water as well as supplying nutrition for your plants. An exception to this rule is when you’re planting plants that are native to desert areas. 2. Pathways and driveways made from materials like pebbles, bark chips or irregular stones will allow rainfall to pass through and absorb into your ground. 3. You don’t have to limit yourself when deciding what to plant in your garden. Using plants native to your area is another great option.

L'UE adopte définitivement le règlement sur la réutilisation des eaux usées traitées • Les Horizons Guillaume JOLY Le 18 mai 2020 4 minutes pour apprendre quelque chose d'utile Jeudi dernier, le Ministère de la Transition Écologique et Solidaire rendait public une liste de 53 départements qui doivent d’ores et déjà se préparer à faire face à la sécheresse estivale. C’est principalement sur l’Est de la France, le Centre ainsi que la région Rhône-Alpes que les prévisions semblent pessimistes. Lever les obstacles à une utilisation plus répandue de ce modèle Une nouvelle qui tombe au moment où, à Bruxelles, les députés européens ont définitivement adopté le futur règlement pour la réutilisation des eaux usées traitées, qui doit permettre à tous les Etats membres “de lever les obstacles à une utilisation plus répandue de ce mode alternatif d’approvisionnement en eau, ce qui pourrait pallier la rareté de l’eau et réduire la vulnérabilité des systèmes d’approvisionnement”. 70% des prélèvements en eau pour l’agriculture Nos articles en lien avec la gestion de l’eau
