Taking Water Conservation to the Heart

Posted by Iris Fletcher:   Yan Lu is the designer of a new sink created to cause people to be more aware of how much water they use.  Above the sink is a fish bowl where a goldfish resides and as you wash your hands, the water drains from the bowl!  Lu designed it in such a way that the water doesn’t completely drain out (he’s not that sadistic) but it certainly makes people aware!  The water that comes into the sink is different from what drains from the bowl, to prevent washing in fish water.  It gives people a way to see how much water they really use on a wash to wash or day to day basis and has the goal of water conservation.  You wouldn’t want a fish to die for you to wash your hands now, would you?  I know I’d be careful too!!!
