The money saving, eco-friendly bathroom: now wash your hands
We all want to save the cheerleader the world, and we all want to save some pennies. Designers have recognised this growing desire, and are doing something about it. Still, it's the sort of thing that seems neither right nor proper at first glance:
According to designer Ariel Rojo who created the Tlalokc water saving toilet (left and centre), combining the two bathroom essentials means saving 83 per cent of the water required to use a toilet.
While the Tlalokc is only a design model at the moment, the slightly uglier but more practical Caroma smartflush toilet is commercially available in Australia already, and due to be sold in the US this Spring.
It's still not right. You're washing your hands in the toilet. Sort of. Gah.
