Already the force behind Australia’s second-largest solar rooftop array, Cate Blanchett has just unveiled one of the world’s largest rainwater harvesting systems.

The 42-year-old actress and environmental crusader was in Sydney this week to show off the installation, expected to save some 3 million gallons annually.

” [This] is a great example of how science and the arts are intimately connected. Both sectors are purveyors of experimentation and the embodiment of the imagination,” she said. We’re all pleased to bring this innovative engineering technology into our creative lives today and indeed to be a showcase of how such systems can function to great economic and societal benefit.

“So, have a shower or use the loos,” she added.

The project is part of the Sydney Theater Company’s Greening the Wharf campaign, which was started in 2009 by Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton. The couple have served as the theater’s artistic directors since 2008.
