The Eco Friendly Bathroom

Are you making plans to redesign your bathroom or do you just want to expand your “green” living plans?

Here are some ways to upgrade your bathroom space by bringing eco-friendly elements in.

Consider recycled glass, ceramic or porcelain products for an updated counter top or tiles for walls.
Efficient ventilation can help to create a healthier bathroom. Look for the Energy Star when selecting new windows or ventilation systems.
Look for safer, greener alternatives for paint and caulking with low or no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
Newer toilet models could save nearly 4 gallons per flush (GPF) compared to older models. Dual-flush toilets save even more by allowing you to select the amount of water needed for each flush.
If replacing cabinets, consider sustainably harvested woods bound with resins free of VOC’s.
Design your bathroom for longevity, which will equate to less maintenance and fewer repairs.
