The average four person household sends over 38,000 gallons of reusable water down the drain each year from its bathrooms and appliances. With a Laundry-to-Landscape greywater system, you can divert most of this water into your garden instead of the ocean. This system benefits your home, garden, community, local ecology and ecosystems, and your wallet. Once installed, it’s a passive and impactful way to conserve and reuse good water everyday.

After this advanced level workshop, you will know:

  • The difference between clear water, greywater, and blackwater
  • A few simple and common types of home greywater systems
  • How to build a Laundry-to-Landscape system step-by-step

At the end, we’ll mock-up a Laundry-to-Landscape & Branched Drain system with real parts!
