Sink Twice – Research through Design to promote sustainable usage of water at your home
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
The reusability and reconsideration of water usage in our homes may not be widely discussed, but even small efforts to conserve every drop of water can have a significant impact. Changing behavior in a context where individuals have constant access to water poses a challenge. In this study, we employ the Research through Design approach to investigate whether saving freshwater for reuse or re-purposing "not dirty" water in kitchens and bathrooms can lead to substantial savings in costs and carbon emissions associated with water filtration from sewage systems. The study involves five ...
