Make a Greener Bathroom
With all the green renovations going on these days, and not enough money to make huge changes, people are wondering what they can do right now to make a difference in their health, their home, and their environment. Here are a few tips!
One simple change you can make is changing up your light bulbs. It can give your space a whole new feel. Surprisingly lightbulbs can make a huge difference in the lighting and feel of your bathroom. If your bathroom is small, brighter, whiter lights instead of standard bulbs will make it seem larger. If you are choosing eco-friendly CFL or LED lightbulbs you can cut down on energy costs as well.
Slow the flow! Of course, this is obvious, and we have heard it all our lives, but using less water just comes down to making small changes in your lifestyle. And those small changes can make huge differences in water consumption! Just using a dry toothbrush (which is recommended by many dentists by the way) can save up to 6 gallons of water each day! Taking shorter showers or turning the water off when you lather are also easy ways to save water. There are of course water-efficient faucets, toilets, and showerheads, that will also help you save a ton of water! Plumbtile.com specializes in beautiful green fixtures and creations from over 75 luxury design brands like Hansgrohe, Duravit, TOTO, Native Trails, Hastings, and Grohe.
Green doesn’t necessarily have to stop with cleaners and water conservancy. Using green items like organic cotton or bamboo linens and steering clear of PVC shower curtains and bathroom items going for PVC-free plastics, or even natural hemp will save a lot of dangerous chemicals from going down the drain. Cotton is one of the most chemical-laden processed materials and adds a lot of pollution and damage to the environment before it even hits your bathroom!
So just by using more environmentally friendly cleaners, using less water, and changing up a few habits and will help make the planet greener, and make your home and yourself healthier! Contact us today so we can help you get that greener bathroom!
