Japanese Style Tub with Recycled Content

If you saw last night’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which I had the fun opportunity to work on, you might have noticed several green elements in the home.  The home has water-efficient Kohler products, rooftop solar, a green trellis and solar wall, etc.  It also has lots of copper products — due to the connection with Kennecott and Rio Tinto — such as this Japanese-style tub made with 99.7% pure recycled-content copper.  The 200-pound, hand-hammered ofuro made an appearance on TV by donation from Premier Copper Products.  The fully recyclable tub retails for $9,999.

    Love the tub. Can visualize it in my future bathroom. Whoever set up the glass and wine bottle on the edge goofed, though. I can just see that glass breaking on the wet floor, and there I am in the tub trying to figure out how to get out without cutting my bare feet on the glass and the wine I was drinking in the hot tub making me pass out, and I wake up naked on the floor in all that glass. Visualization gone bad. I still want the tub, though.

    I agree with you, the bath tube is great but better not to have the bottle of red Wine on the edge! But I also still fancy the bath tube, pretty unique.
