With just a few simple changes, you can transform your bathroom into an eco-friendly space that reduces your environmental footprint. In this article, we will share some tips and tricks to help you create a sustainable bathroom that is both stylish and functional.
A simpler way to reduce water consumption in your bathroom is to invest in low-flow fixtures. These fixtures are designed to reduce the amount of water used without compromising performance. You can install low-flow showerheads, taps, and toilet system balls to significantly reduce your water consumption.
Or, for an even simpler way to avoid unnecessary water waste, just turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving and make sure to fix any leaks as soon as they occur. You can also use a bucket to collect water while waiting for your shower to warm up, which can then be used to water your plants or clean your floors.
Tip #2: Choose Eco-Friendly Materials
Another way to make your bathroom more sustainable is to choose eco-friendly materials. For example, you can opt for recycled glass or bamboo countertops, or use reclaimed wood for your bathroom vanity.
Tip #3: Upgrade Your Lighting
Upgrading your lighting to energy-efficient bulbs can save you money on your energy bills and reduce your environmental impact. You can install LED lights or compact fluorescent bulbs in your bathroom to significantly reduce your energy consumption.
Tip #4: Use Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products
Traditional cleaning products can contain harmful chemicals that can be bad for your health and the environment. By using eco-friendly cleaning products, you can keep your bathroom clean and reduce your exposure to these chemicals.
Tip #5: Incorporate Plants
Plants are a great way to purify the air and improve indoor air quality. By incorporating plants into your bathroom, you can create a more natural and relaxing environment and they’re a better option for decoration instead of synthetic, plastic plants. Plants that look great and thrive in hot, humid conditions include snake plants, pothos, monstera, and orchids.
Tip #6: Choose Sustainable Bath Linens
Choosing sustainable bath linens is another great way to make your bathroom eco-friendly. You can opt for organic cotton towels and bathmats, or choose products made from bamboo or linen. Additionally, you can reduce the amount of laundry you do by reusing your towels multiple times before washing them.
Tip #7: The Smaller Stuff Matters
Think about the most common disposable product you use daily in the bathroom – toilet paper. An average Brit uses 127 rolls a year which is a lot of paper, especially when using conventional toilet paper which can clog pipes and take months to break down. This can be swapped out for a better eco-friendly alternative – bamboo toilet paper. The bamboo material used in our toilet paper is biodegradable, our packaging is 100% recyclable, and they’re all FSC approved so you don’t need to worry about being wasteful or damaging to the environment. This can be an easy yet impactful first eco-conscious step towards making your bathroom a greener space.
By incorporating these tips and tricks into your bathroom design, you can create a sustainable and eco-friendly space that reduces your environmental footprint. Not only will you be doing your part to protect the planet, but you will also be creating a stylish and functional bathroom that you can be proud of. Wanting to make the change now?
