Water equals money / basin faucet

Water equals money
Water equals money

Don’t you think people use too much water while washing their hands and face? When
a faucet is used, we just carelessly turn on the tap for washing and we do not recognize
how much water we usually waste. Water is becoming a kind of careless waste so that we
normally regard wasteful people as those who spend money like water.
Due to that, this basin faucet will let you be aware of water waste by a coin spinning like
a waterwheel. The coin, hung at the mouth of the faucet, spins as quickly as you use water
and it says ‘You are spending as much money as the water you use.’ It does not give us a
lesson but a change of our perception.
