Now we are back from the island and the fact of being completely surrounded by water, and the occasional rain, has made me think about water a great deal. And this morning when I was taking a shower in my parents house the water suddenly stopped, -so annoying! with soap on the body and shampoo in the hair I had to step out and dry myself, -what else could I do, there was no water!?! We quickly packed up and went to the Eco House project, which neither has any water (it has never been installed), anyhow we tackled the garden with different tools and made some plans of what to grow there, and it just hit me that we need to collect rain water! why did I not think of that earlier??? -of course that’s what we need to do, so obvious! But as we have decided not to bring any plastic or newly produced objects in to the house we need to source something second-hand or make it our selves from recycled material… for now here are some pictures to start off the thinking process, and maybe more people will be inspired to collect rainwater?!?
maybe this last one is too rustic? but which one do you vote for or suggest? well will look around and see what I can find but will definitely start collecting rainwater one way or another!
