Sarah and her roommate Kathy live in an apartment in downtown Calgary. Sarah loves to paint in acrylic, but on days like today when she can't travel to her studio, she decides to paint at home. The nearest waste management center is 15 miles away, and she doesn't have time to wait for the paint to evaporate, so she decides to use, what she believes to be, the quickest solution...
Looking good! Paint bucket is looking full again, I better empty it.
What's wrong Kathy?
...But I can't throw it away outside; I can't stand to think how it would hurt the environment. And I doubt you want to drive me to the recycling depot...
Don't you know that throwing out that paint water will damage our drains? I don't feel like losing our depoist.
Kathy showed Sarah a product she had found out about on Twitter, TerraSpin; A water purifier/filter that could be applied to most sinks, and used centrifugal force to help speed up water filtering. She explained that Sarah wouldn't have to travel far to dispose of the paint and that she would only need to change the filter about once every year considering her use.
And you can also sleep soundly knowing that your gross paint water stays away from ecosystems. And since you have some extra time to paint, there's no excuse for not becoming the next Picasso!
I feel so much better knowing that we won't have worry about destroying the plumbing!
