With this combination sink/goldfish bowl, the more water you let drain from the tap, the less your pet has to swim in. The tap water’s pipeline isn’t connected to the bowl so the water is pure, and designer Yan Lu assures us the water never actually drains out completely. But while the water level returns to normal when the tap is off, it still has to be stressful for the fish to live in a constantly fluctuating environment. Lu says his innovative sink is “an emotional way to persuade consumers to think about saving water,” but PETA immediately sent him a letter stating, “environmental education does not require cruelty to animals.”
