In the Bath
Changing the way you fill your tub, investing in low flow fixtures and choosing the eco-friendliest type of toilet paper are some of the ways to make your “special place” a greener space.
A Greener Bath Experience
Consider A Low Flow Toilet
Today’s low-flush toilets use 1.3 gallons or less per flush, as opposed to 1.6 gallons or more. In addition to saving water, the styles are more modern, giving an updated look for a relatively minimal cost
Improve Your Tub Filling Technique
Running the water till it is just the right temperature before putting in the plug can result in gallons of water wasted down the drain. Start filling right away and adjust the temperature as you go, you’ll be glad you did.
By the Bar
Did you know that soap is not the only shower item you can buy in a bar? In fact, many items like shampoo bars are exactly what they sound like—no bottle, all bar—and can last up to 80 washes. Give them a try.
Recycled toilet paper production takes 50% less water, 64% less energy, and makes 74% less air pollution than non-recycled TP. Some estimates America’s toilet paper obsession results in 27,000 trees daily, just flushed away. Why not give it a try?
Shorten Your Shower
Shorten the length of your shower by just 1 minute and you will save more than two gallons of water. In a year’s time that adds up to over 800 gallons!
Ditch the Pre-Moistened Wipes
Even though you may feel cleaner, the packaged wipes will not disintegrate as well as toilet paper when flushed and may cause expensive plumbing repairs in the future. Try a product that you can spray onto TP like Pristine Toiltet Paper Spray available at Amazon.com
