How To Create An Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Bathroom

Your bathroom can look fabulous and be environmentally friendly at the same time using both eco-friendly and sustainable methods that protect our world.

Reduce the water flow

One of the most common ways that bathrooms waste resources is by wasting water – and often a lot of it. One of the easiest fixes for water consumption in the bathroom is to change out high-flowing faucets, toilets, and showerheads.


Motion Sensor Faucets

Water is wasted everywhere. Many people will run bathroom faucets while they shave and brush their teeth even if it’s not being used, when they do this, water literally goes down the drain. One way to stop wasting water this way is to change out normal faucets with modern motion-sensing faucets. Motion sensing faucets only run if water is needed and this virtually eliminates wasted water from bathroom faucets.


Low Flow Toilets

It is no secret that toilets waste a lot of water. If you have an old high gallon-per-flush toilet then it’s time to replace it with one that works more efficiently. Today’s toilets work better with less water, so make sure you opt for one that allows you to choose between two different flushing options. This way you won’t use more water than is needed.


Remodel with natural materials

Glass, metal, bamboo, cork, and porcelain are all sustainable and very eco-friendly. Using these materials will not only give your bathroom a stunning, unique look but can help protect the environment too. These are materials that can last a long time and they can also be reused, so they hold value for a very long time.


Showerheads

You can buy an environmentally friendly, low-flow showerheads. This simple change not only has the ability to add a new look to your bathroom but can also save a lot of wasted water.

The average shower is fitted with a high flow water head that shoots out an astounding 2.1 gallons per minute. You could greatly reduce wasted water with a new showerhead that is specifically designed for a lower flow rate.
