Now that you are totally disgusted, let me make clear how this ingenious water saving idea works. When you flush the toilet, clean water held in the reservoir tank replaces the water in the toilet basin, as the waste is carried down the drain to the sewer. The water in the reservoir tank is then replaced with fresh clean water from the pipes coming into your house. The water you drink, shower or do laundry with comes from these same pipes. So...still with me...the Toilet Sink Lid just diverts that clean water up through the attached faucet so you can wash your hands before it goes into the reservoir tank. It even has a built in soap dish folks!
Best of all it's not a concept design; the Toilet Lid Sink is available from Gaiam for about $90.
It is made of, â€œporcelain-like white plastic replaces your existing tank top and adjusts to fit standard toilets up to 8.5in wide and 18-22in long,â€ according to Gaiam.
This is actually an affordable way for us all to save water... are we ready for it?
