“I found that gray water from soap nuts, as well as several organic detergents, could be reused safely for non-potable uses,” she says. “But gray water that was generated from [conventional] soaps that had things like soluble salts and boron, that became very detrimental because those ingredients accumulated in the gray water and then made it unusable for crop irrigation.”

Ramachandran went on to found her own nonprofit, The Grey Water Project, which teaches people how to recycle gray water in their own homes. She does workshops at schools, libraries and corporate events, and she developed a gray water science curriculum that has been implemented in more than 90 schools so far.
