One of the most important issues of the 21st Century is sustainability.
Enjoying the luxury of a whirlpool bathroom doesn’t mean you need to forsake an eco-friendly mind-set. In fact, there are lots of ways you can quickly make a measurable reduction in your use of water and energy in the bathroom. Here are our top 6 methods you can employ to make your bathroom more eco-friendly right away…
6. Use sustainably-sourced bathroom products
Ethical practices don’t begin and end in the bathroom; in fact, many of the best eco-friendly changes you can make involve external factors – like the products you use. We all use cleaning products in our bathrooms to keep them looking their best, but you can do so more conscientiously by switching to greener options. These are available from many of the big-name brands and supermarkets.
5. Always use energy-saving lightbulbs
Most of us already have homes full of energy-saving lightbulbs, but if you’re still using full halogen or filament bulbs in your bathroom, it might be time to switch. Energy-saving lights can take a few more seconds to get to full brightness, but they offer a much longer lifespan and will save you money and electricity over time.
4. Install motion-controlled taps
One of the biggest reasons that water goes to waste is a dripping tap, or someone accidentally leaving a tap running. This can be completely eliminated by installing an electronic sensor tap. These require you to wave a hand below them before the water starts to flow. Not only is this more eco-friendly, it’s also a very stylish and futuristic addition to your bathroom.
3. Check for bathroom leaks
Another key factor in the waste of water and increase in bills is leaks that go unidentified. Hundreds of litres of water can be lost via small leaks that get worse over time. If your bills have been increasing with no clear cause, be sure to check all of the pipework in your bathroom for leaks. By plugging them and fixing them for good, you can save lots of money and help the environment too.
2. Cut down on your shower time
It’s a fact: a 5-minute shower uses on average about 35 litres of water. Over a year, this can add up to a lot in terms of pure usage and cost. By reducing your shower time by just a minute, you can save potentially thousands of litres of water each year. You’ll also have the added benefit of getting more out of your day, simply by reducing your shower time by an inconsequential amount.
1. Invest in an eco-friendly whirlpool bath
If you’re in the market for a new whirlpool bath, picking an eco-friendly model is a fantastic way to start as you mean to go on.
