Student designer Simon Hedt from Monash University has combined a washer and dryer for EcoPod, his innovative washing appliance.

EcoPod is a hassle-free washing appliance perfect for congested urban homes. EcoPod is available with three washing baskets with lids for different types of clothes; these baskets serve as a washing barrel once placed into the machine. EcoPod creates nontoxic, eco-friendly graywater that can be used to water the homeowner's plants.

Implications - This product is a perfect example of the exciting new products available to cut back on wasteful energy and to provide people like yourself with more time to spend doing the things you really enjoy, and less time in the laundry room!
