The MinusWashingMachine Project

In the MinusCar household we've made a habit of collecting water previously wasted while we warm up the shower water in a five gallon bucket which gets emptied into the washing machine.

In this man's household he's modified a washing machine to operate by pedaling a bicycle on a trainer. He's completed 114 loads since July 2007. He's not messing around.

That is an awesome set-up.

growing up on a farm, we saved water doing the same thing.

We recently bought a front loading washer since it's more efficient and can no longer dump water in...sigh...

Our house plants however are well fed.
