Kidney Juice?

I’ve linked to some of GOOD’s previous articles on the Water Crisis and they’ve now put together the ‘Water Issue’.

My favourite article is about recycling urine (you can take the boy out of surf club…) – while the taboo about drinking something that was pee is kind of understandable if we can purify it to the point where it’s as good (or better than) our current sources of drinking water then it just seems a bit silly really (Windhoek, Namibia is currently the only place recycling from toilet to tap).

Maybe wastewater just needs to be rebranded – I reckon if we can think of a catchy enough name we’ll be strutting around in stillsuits before we know it.
