We may soon be able to drink our own shower water!

Ever have a hankerin’ to drink your own shower water? It may soon be possible.

Eco-thinkers have come up with an amazing new way to create drinking water - by putting plants in the bottom of a shower.
Designers Jun Yasumoto, Vincent Vandenbrouk, Olivier Pigasse, and Alban Le Henry came up with the concept when looking for new ways to recycle precious H2O.

After you have washed in the special eco-shower the water passes down into a series of physical filters and is treated by plants such as reeds and rushes growing around your feet.

Not sure I’d be keen on showering with plants around my feet and I’m very sure I’ll never be keen on drinking my own shower water!
