I was recently in Panama City Beach, Florida. One morning while running, I noticed a shopping center watering their landscaping. My mind immediately went to water waste, but it was quickly stopped when I saw a sign posted in the area stating "This beautiful area is being cared for by grey water".
I was somewhat familiar with the concept because of my time at A Cleaner World and my very basic knowledge of commercial grade washing machines. I decided to learn more about 'grey water', and here it is in a nutshell.
Definition of Grey water - Any wash water that has been used in the home, except water from toilets. Dish, shower, sink, and laundry water comprise 50 - 80% of residential 'waste' water. This may be reused for other purposes, especially landscape irrigation.
We're all looking for ways to conserve.....this is another terrific idea!
