Reduce Your Carbon Footprint and Make a Better Impact On The World!

undefinedThe bathroom is a special place; and whether you are looking to transform your current space into something equipped with a regal tub that makes you think you're in a a day spa, or simply just want to update the look of your current bathroom, there are many ways in which you can reduce your carbon footprint with bathroom remodels.

Let us first start out with something that plumbers are all too familiar with, toilets. Every time the toilet is flushed and the water takes the waste away through the pipes, copious amounts of water is used. And while the toilet will presumably be used more than most fixtures in the bathroom, it is quite essential to install a low-flow toilet. Low-flow toilets use significantly less water than old and outdated toilets, while still working at an optimal level. Saving water is an extremely important step for anyone looking to go a little green.

Other ways to save the all important commodity of water is by installing low-flow faucets and shower heads. Installing a faucet aerator will prevent splashing from your faucet and readily help to conserve water in the home. All of these things, of course, will also save you money by lowering the energy costs.

When it comes to the flooring, cabinets, and countertops of your bathroom remodel, using just any old material won't cut it if reducing your carbon footprint is the goal. Make sure to use sustainable, non-toxic materials when updating the look of your bathroom. It may not be the first option that pops into your brain when thinking of material for hardwood floors or cabinets, but bamboo is the best friend for anyone looking to go a little green. It is highly considered to be environmentally friendly and has a stupendous look to it. Also be weary of the paints and glues that are used in the remodeling process. The best option for paint will be one that is zero to low VOC paint. Most paint manufacturers will have this option, just make sure you aren't using a paint that yields high toxins and unfriendly compounds.
