Saving Space & Greywater, Too

Two weeks into the fall term and I am busier than a one-legged person in a hiney-kicking contest with over 300 students studying Sustainability in all its various forms along with the tense, but always friendly, geopolitical relations between the US and Canada. Postings will be few and far between for the next couple of months.

But the Rainbow Water Coalition would be remiss in not acknowledging this Greywater Gadget. Introducing the Ecocubo, a student-designed space saving sink that won an award at the prestigious 2011 Valencia Design Week. Thanks to online magazine, Treehugger, for interpreting the Spanish webpages to publish this article on the gadget. Treehugger gave it a good review, and suggested that it might also work for the kitchen sink (but it will not be welcomed in Oregon for that use).
