Bathrooms That Don’t Stink

What We Intend to Improve:

Water wasted through running yet unused faucets

Our Problem Statement:

The bathrooms on campus are very inefficient and unsustainable. From our customer needs survey we found certain aspects of the bathroom that we would like to change. The sinks often become disgusting from everyone touching the knobs, which spread germs. The floors are difficult to maintain and do not drain well, causing a higher need for human labor to clean. The toilets are very inefficient. First, there should be urinals in male bathrooms because when flushed, they do not send as much water down the drain. Also, the current toilets send down gallons of water when it is mostly unnecessary. Finally, shower usage accounts for a lot of wasted water. We would like to improve upon these issues with our own solutions to make the dorm bathrooms more sustainable and user friendly.
