Making money by selling water technology is not a bad thing. There are many technologies that do a great job of cleaning, conserving and reusing our precious water. However, if you have been reading along with me, you know that I have eviscerated more than one water technology and water cause that in my mind was pure garbage or flim-flam.
Today however, I am raving first about an innovative new technology that aids water conservation by appealing to perhaps the most powerful water tool known to man; our general desire to do what is right for our planet and each other. The SWON™ is an innovative device designed to help reduce the water we use in our showers. So yes, it does offer a flow controller to allow you to reduce your shower flow. However, before you tell me that this has been done before, go a little deeper with me. The SWON™ is also a WiFi device that will track your water statistics, and allow you to actually change your showering behavior in order that you can help reduce the waste of fresh water. The device allows you to control other parameters in your house, from the shower. Crazy, isn’t it? But I am telling you, the magic of this device is that it can raise our consciousness about how we waste water. Since we all want to help, a little nudge from the SWON™ can be a game changer in the global water conservation effort.
In other cool news, I was contacted by one Taylor Alexander of a firm called Digital Masonry and informed about a new water conservation hashtag #NoH2oChallenge, and a great challenge to all of us to save water. The challenge asks you to select one water-using task to give up for 24 hours and then go on to nominate 3 others to do the same. If you get a chance, check it out.
