EcoCool is a Water Filter that Waters Houseplants with Treated Greywater

EcoCool [2] is a system designed by Ardavan Mirhosseini [2] to filter and reuse the greywater [3] produced in showers and sinks (but not toilets). The water passes through two separate filters and can also be used to cool and moisturize the space. After the water makes its way through this system it is now clean enough to grow plants and vegetables. EcoCool consists of two filters; the first filter is hidden while the second filter is a series of wall tiles that are full of channels filled with sand and marble allowing water to pass through. These wall tiles separate the water into small enough droplets that they can be vaporized into the air, cooling the air and the system in the process. In addition to cooling hot air, EcoCool moisturizes dry air through the process of vaporization.
