You may have heard about ways to incorporate sustainability into your lifestyle. But, do you know how to create a sustainable washroom that ensures maximum eco-friendliness?
Sometimes sustainability can seem a bit intimidating and expensive, but it does not necessarily have to be if executed smartly.
Choosing to make a sustainable bathroom is a rewarding process. There are a lot of simple changes you can make in your washroom that can hugely reduce the environmental impact and it does not take much time and effort.
Here we discuss 3 powerful and smart moves to create a more sustainable washroom.
#1: Switch to LED Lightbulbs
Incandescent bulbs consume a lot of energy, which also adds to your electricity bill. Now is the perfect opportunity for you to make the switch to LED Lightbulbs. It is one of the simplest ways to save on both your energy bill and the need to constantly replace bulbs.
On average, an LED bulb consumes 80 percent less energy than the normal incandescent bulb, and lasts 25 times longer — that amounts to a rated life of about 25,000 hours. Since LEDs operate at a lower wattage, without sacrificing lumens or light quality, a single bulb alone can help reduce your light bill significantly and thereby contribute to saving the environment!
#2: Update Water Fixtures
Another important way to significantly cut back on the number of water resources that your bathroom uses is by switching to low-flow water fixtures. These low-flow fixtures generally include sink faucets and showerheads that use significantly less water per minute than traditional fixtures without actually sacrificing comfort and ease of use. Low-flow fixtures can usually save more than 30% of the amount of water you use every day.
Switching to low-flow fixtures does not only help you save water, but significantly reduces the amount of energy used. Traditional fixtures increase our carbon footprints by a significant percentage. A typical showerhead will use anywhere between 5 to 8 gallons of water per minute, while a low-flow showerhead will bring that down to 2.5 gallons or less with the same amount of water pressure.
#3: Reducing paper wastage as much as possible
By avoiding unnecessary usage of paper in washrooms, you can reduce your impact on forests, cut energy use and climate change emissions, and also help limit water, air, and other pollution. But, how can we make your common paper towels have less of an impact on the environment? Consider using Autocut Dispensers as it dispenses one sheet of paper towel at a time to prevent unnecessary paper wastage. They guarantee sustainability and an eco-friendly approach; in order to make a difference.
