The purpose of this project is to build a shower for each family in the community. Last summer, a prototype was created in order to serve as an example. The shower is created by PVC pipes and U joints, all painted black, to ensure as much trapped heat as possible. The shower is also covered with 2-liter plastic bottles, which serve as a small greenhouse, trapping heat from the sun. The feedback from this project will help design showers for other communities in the future
