Shreya is a freshman at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, and the founder of the nonprofit organization The Grey Water Project. After seeing the harmful effects of droughts in California and India, she became fascinated with “grey water,” the lightly used water from sinks, showers, and laundries. Through her workshops, Shreya has demystified grey water reuse and taught thousands of people how to install simple no-permit grey water systems. Her grey water curriculum is now used by 90 schools to educate students on this important environmental issue. Shreya carried out 3,500 hours of experimentation on grey water to ensure it was eco-friendly. She has also developed a low-cost, patent-pending drought solution using grey water from soap nuts to irrigate crops.
