Graywater Guerrillas

Learn how to reuse graywater, harvest rainwater, and install composting and dry toilets.

In this google Tech Talk (recorded in May 2010) Laura Allen and Gregory Bullock show how to reuse graywater, harvest rainwater, and install composting and dry toilets.

Laura Allen is a founding member of Greywater Action (formerly the Greywater Guerrillas). Gregory Bullock is the founder of Bang for your Green Buck, an environmental enterprise that designs sustainable, productive landscapes that grow food through greywater irrigation and rain harvesting.
