Here are a couple about being poo-less and showering in a way that water is saved in a bucket
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
place a bucket in your shower to collect some of the water as you (and others) shower
- it might only collect 10% to 20% of the water, and that's okay for this BB
- it might take a few days to get enough water for this BB
use a bucket of water from a shower
- to flush a toilet, or to water something outside
- at least three gallons
- from pooless showers only!
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of the water from your shower that's obviously poo-less and at least three gallons of water
- a picture of you giving the water to something outside or to flush a toilet
- OR a 2-minute video of you doing the above
I don't use funny shower products just homemade soap bar and Liggets shampoo bar, which is also just soap on my hair once a week, so my showers are short and I have low flow shower heads
I was pleasantly surprised on how little water had to run before it ran hot, first 2
bucket picture. After capturing that water I put the bucket where I thought it would get the most splash off of me. I take short showers so you can see the amount collected.
I left it upstairs in the bathroom until this morning when I needed to flush, this was easier than carrying it all the way outside.
So I used rainwater to wash my hair (with bicarbonate of soda, apple scrap vinegar and camomile) and collected the used water in a garden trug. I'm hoping that using rainwater will be softer than the hard tap water we have here.
Keep going! (remember, the requirement is three gallons)
Here are two more lots of reusing greywater, from washing my hair and having a quick shower. The hair washing was about 5 litres and the shower was a bit more so together with the last lot of hair washing I think I've got to 3 gallons - that's a lot of water.
It looks like you were approved a while ago. Congrats! The approval is on your second batch of photos.
