Did you ever heard about ecological shower ?


Taking a shower often seems like an harmless act. Yet it is one of our most energy-consuming habits. Indeed, taking a shower actually represents an expense of more or less 80 litres of water. The water used is often hot so we can add to this waste an additional cost of energy.

Indeed, shower is an absolutely brilliant invention, and it would be very difficult to live without it. But thinking about ecological alternatives to limit the waste of clean water, is totally possible. At We Are Open Coworking (WAO), we have decided to innovate and to install an ecological shower. Thanks to this innovation, we will be able to reduce by 7, the energy consumption related to this small gesture of our daily lives. Thusly, WAO is committed to respecting and perpetuating the values it holds dear, and provides a solid and clear response to a fundamental concern.

The project to build an ecological shower.

As a matter of fact, you surely understand. We Are Open Coworking (WAO) is planning to install an ecological and economical shower in its premises. This shower, would be accessible to every coworkers and employees of the We Are Open Coworking. The question that you surely ask yourself now is : « but, what do they mean by an ecological shower ? »

In few words, an ecological shower is a shower capable of filtering and recovering the water drained during your shower. Once recovered, it is filtered and then reused for another utility. In this case, at WAO, we have foreseen that this water would mainly be reused in the tanks of our toilets, in order to feed the flushing system.

However, many possibilities are still to be explored in order to get the most out of this revolutionary system.

Taking an ecological shower in your coworking: it's possible!

Above all, in addition to saving energy and making an optimal use of clean water. The ecological shower of We Are Open Coworking, will save you precious time, and allow you to enjoy the luxury of a pleasant shower in our premises.

Exhausted by this tiresome morning and once you arrive at the We Are Open Coworking, you enjoy a warm and relaxing shower that will help you to get back in shape to quickly get ready for the rest of your day. And all this, without even having to worry about the future of the litres of water you used. Because thanks to the filters, every single drop of water will be recovered.

 As a result, the use of an ecological shower, will help you to save an average of 27,000 litres of water per year. This means that, in the long run, an average of 175 euros can be sustainably reinvested and used for other projects.
