28Towpath International Homestay
The water that we use while we take a shower, brush our teeth, wash our clothes and wash the dishes is sent via a pipe into specifically designed greywater systems in the garden. Nutrients from grey water or urine waste are taken up both by the heavy feeding trees and plants that have been planted. In this way it is possible to deal with soap and detergent residues, and oils found in grey water. It is important, however, to avoid harsh chemicals and to make smart choices about household products — choosing those that have very low levels of salts and phosphates. You are welcome to use the products that we use.
