Tips for an Eco-Friendly Bathroom

People use – and waste – much more water in the bathroom today than anywhere else in the house. Toilets that are good for the environment is the new trend today. If you add up all the water you use with environmentally harmful soaps, additives, the energy used to heat the water, and more, and your bathroom could be detrimental to the environment. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many things you could do to attract little green into your bathroom.

Save Water


We waste a lot of water in the shower and vast amounts of energy to heat the water we waste. If you want to save water and save the earth simultaneously, you should consider installing a used showerhead or air shower. A standard showerhead produces 25 liters of water per minute, while a low-flow showerhead produces only 6-15 liters of water. If you want to save water, you should consider an air shower. An air shower device can be connected to an existing showerhead. Force every drop of water full of atmosphere. This makes each drop of water bigger to look as wet and strong as a standard showerhead. Studies show that atmospheric packaging can reduce water consumption by another 30%.

Use Recycled Tiles

When redesigning your bathroom from scratch, choose recycled materials, such as recycled glass tiles. Choosing glass also makes ecological sense. Each tile of recycled glass saves enough electricity to run a 100-watt bulb for about four hours. Also, glass accounts for about 6% of landfill waste and takes more than a million years to break.

Use Non-Toxic Shampoos and Soaps


Many common soaps and shampoos contain compounds that can endanger your well-being. Deodorants, soaps, shampoos, and body sprays contain many carcinogenic chemicals. Start looking for soaps and shampoos that do not use artificial flavors, but the essential oils are great. Also, choose soaps and shampoos that use minimally biodegradable packaging. Making your bathroom more environmentally friendly should not be a difficult task. Whether you want some simple modifications or a major overhaul, a greener bath is at your fingertips.
