Have you ever really wondered how much water (& money) you can save off your water bill with every flush you make? Probably not, but here at Claire & Ryan’s home they save approximately 10 pints of water every time they flush their DIY solar powered toilet!!

If they use their toilet say 6 times a day, that is a whopping 60 pints of water a day, or 21,900 pints of water saved a year… Imagine that reduction on your water bill.

Both their front & rear gardens showcase effortless ways to collect rainwater, ensuring it doesn’t add to surface water flooding. Instead it flushes their loo and waters their plants too. 

They are passionate about reducing their part in climate emergency threats and have all manner of low tech, low spend solutions in their home, saving resources and saving themselves money at the same time. They are part of a growing number of people who have switched energy supply to a 100% renewable supplier that is actually cheaper than the larger energy companies.

Claire & Ryan's small back garden makes space for nature and is packed with useful, edible & pollinator plants. If you want to be more energy and water conscious and see how natural gardens can store both carbon and water, be a haven for wildlife and produce fresh food this home is well worth a visit!
