Zen Garden Sink Is A Good Idea In Theory

In this age of ‘environmental awareness’ inventors and designers are always trying to come up with new ways to better use our natural resources. So here’s an interesting take on the bathroom sink that reuses the water from the basin to feed a plant.

But it’s pretty obvious the sink is more of a design concept than a usable idea because we all know how many chemicals end up being poured into a bathroom sink like toothpaste, mouthwash, shaving cream and soap just to name a few. And while I only took Biology classes up until high-school from what I remember none of those chemicals were used by plants for the purpose of living. Still, I wonder if that long channel could be outfitted with a filter of some sort ensuring that only H20 eventually made it to the plant.
