Here’s my submission. Poo-less water (about 4 gallons) from shower. Feeding a thirsty apple tree and a thirsty avocado tree.

I have been trying poo-less showers for about 3 months now. The bucket in the picture holds 15L (roughly 4 gallons). I used to the water to water one of our poplar trees.

Reused a little over 3 gallons of shower water to water some mint. It helped that the shower was in a common house and was used regularly at the SKIP event. The water gathered rather quickly.
