4 Ways to Create An Eco-Friendly Bathroom

May 13, 2020 | Blog

Are you planning a bathroom remodel? Now is the perfect time to transform your space to become greener. Little changes, like water conservation, can have benefits for you and the environment. Here are a few modifications you can make to have an eco-friendly bathroom.

Low-Flow Fixtures

Even though there is an abundance of water on Earth, only a small part of it is fresh. Toilets, showers and baths waste a lot of water if you don’t have eco-friendly fixtures. A low-flow toilet and other investments can significantly reduce the thousands of gallons of water you use every year.

Change to Natural and LED light

Lighting is essential when it comes to the bathroom. It’s where you spend a good amount of your day and normally where people get ready. All of this time can cause you to have a high electricity bill. However, using natural and LED lights can help reduce your electricity and help the environment. No need to use electrical lighting when you have skylights or sun tunnels. If you use natural light during the day, you only have to use electrical lighting at night. LED lights are very efficient because they produce light without creating a lot of heat.

Use Natural Products

When it comes to towels, bath mats, robes and decor, there are a bunch of different green options you can pick from. Organic cotton, bamboo and hemp can all help reduce your carbon footprint. Tiles and cabinets can be made with recycled items such as glass, concrete and paper. Even replacing the smallest of things, like your plastic toothbrush, can contribute to your eco-friendly bathroom.

Use Greener Cleaners

One of the easiest things you can do is to switch to an eco-friendly cleaning solution. Luckily, you can probably find the ingredients for the supplies in your kitchen. If you’re willing to use a little elbow grease, you can use baking soda and vinegar to fight stains, mildew and mineral buildup. White vinegar is especially great for unclogging faucets and shower heads. If you do not like the smell, you can use lemon or your preferred essential oils. There are also plenty of eco-friendly cleaners if DIY projects are not for you.

Switching to an eco-friendly lifestyle shouldn’t be a hassle. Legacy Bath and Kitchen can help with the transition. Contact us today to discuss the eco-friendly bathroom of your dreams!
