Shreya Ramachandran has made it her mission to tackle global water scarcity after witnessing and experiencing droughts and water scarcity firsthand in California and India. She conducted several years of grey water research to explore methods to safely reuse it. However, when she started her outreach, she realized that most people had either never heard of grey water, or had misconceptions about its use. In order to educate and provide resources to people of all ages, she founded The Grey Water Project in 2016.
Whether you install a grey water system, advocate for water policy change, fix a leak, or just take a shorter shower, every drop counts. Through actions big and small, The Grey Water Project empowers people and organizations to be water heroes.
Conserving Water Starts With Us
The Grey Water Project is a nonprofit aimed at promoting the safe reuse of grey water and water conservation, through outreach, advocacy, policy changes and grey water curricula.
“My vision is to have grey water reuse become like paper and plastic recycling - something everyone knows how to do”
The Grey Water Project is also working towards the achievement of SDG6: ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. Specifically, SDG 6.3, 6.4 and 6.a on issues surrounding substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse of water globally, reducing the number of people suffering from water scarcity, and expanding international work for water efficiency, wastewater treatment and reuse technologies.
