Making the unpopular case for: most Britons bathe too much and it's massively unsustainable unless we learn to do it with much less water, fuel, and plastic.

Ah, I just looked at the comments on this article and apparently the reason that all research stopped on mist showers in the 1970s is because they're a good way to give yourself Legionnaires Disease. So maybe not such a good idea.

@celesteh After two years in Calafou, I really, really enjoy the luxury of having my own private shower with hot water in my flat now. But no, it is certainly not sustainable. Now I'm curious about the article, because "sustainable decadence" sounds like the right attitude for this project.
