If you’re looking for some easy ways to make your bathroom
more eco-friendly, then look no further. We’ve got a few tips right here! Think
of it as a green job you can do at home.
1. Upgrade Your Toilet, Showerhead, & Faucet
Flushing the toilet, taking a long shower, and leaving the
water on while your brush your teeth are prime culprits of water waste. But now
there are options to help you reduce your water usage.
This includes efficient toilets that uses much less water
to flush, saving thousands of gallons of water per year. Likewise, showerheads
and faucets can be upgraded to lower your flow rates, which will increase your
energy efficiency and save you money on your utility bills.
2. Get an Energy-efficient Water Heater
Speaking of saving money on your utility bills, how about
upgrading your water heater? Newer, more energy-efficient water heaters use
less energy to create hot water, which will slash your energy costs significantly.
Look for the EPA Energy Star label to make sure you’re finding a good one!
3. Add an Oiled Teak Shower Mat
No, they’re not just trendy to give that zen, minimalist
vibe. Oiled teak shower mats actually are practical as well. While cloth bath
mats are magnets for mold and mildew, teak wood mats resist harmful bacteria
while giving your bathroom the modern look your desire. Plus, they’re slip
resistant, naturally warm, and easy to clean!
There you have it! Those are three savvy moves you can
make to have a more eco-friendly bathroom. For more green tips and green jobs
