Make water-conserving upgrades
Adding a low-flow showerhead, a low-flow faucet aerator and a dual-flush toilet can all help reduce water usage.
A leaky faucet can waste 212 gallons of water a month! Check for worn out seals, buildup, corrosion or loose parts.
Use green cleaners
Keep your bathroom clean and chemical-free with a product that doesn’t use harsh chemicals. Take it one step further by making your own from common household ingredients, and you’ll know exactly what’s in the spray bottle.
Opt for showers, not baths
A typical bath uses 35-50 gallons of water, but a nice, hot 10-minute shower from a low-flow showerhead only uses about 25 gallons. Cut that number down even further by taking a quicker shower.
Choose eco-friendly toilet paper
Consider bamboo pulp toilet paper or TP with a high recycled content that is totally chlorine-free (TCF) or processed chlorine-free (PCF). If every U.S. household replaced just one virgin-fiber roll of toilet paper a year with a roll made from 100% recycled paper, it would save about 425,000 trees annually!
Install LED lights
Make an eco-friendly switch by swapping old halogen or incandescent bulbs for more energy-efficient and longer-lasting LEDs (light-emitting diodes).
