"My Shower Curtain is a Green Warrior"


Do you worry about using too much water when showering?

Enjoy showering so much that you lose track of time?


Elisabeth Buecher, an exciting textile-based installation designer and educator has come up with a timely reminder for when it's time to get out and dry off.

The shower curtain is covered in spikes what inflate when you're taking too much time. She calls it a "design for pain and for our own good"

a design for pain and for our own good

— Elisabeth Buecher

It is part of a line called “My Shower Curtain is a Green Warrior.” The curtain has a feature that chastises the time/water waster for staying in too long.

Buecher has also designed another that she calls "Trap" This one inflates around the person after 4 minutes of showering, trapping them (not one for claustrophobes).

The designs are not for sale, but they do highlight the issues of water consumption.
