Your Shower Is A Major Water Hog, Here’s How To Green Your Bathroom

We teamed up with well.ca to bring you a series of videos on how to go green room by room,  we start with Simple Ways To Go Green In The Bathroom.

All of the products I have suggested in this video are items I use every day and know well!

 
The bathroom can be a hot spot for water waste, toxic chemicals, and excessive paper use. But that’s doesn’t mean that we can’t turn it into a green haven.

The average Canadian uses 329 liters of water per day – more than twice that of Europeans – and a lot of that comes from the bathroom. The shower uses 21 percent of household water and the toilet a whopping 27 percent (more than any other appliance).

Did you know? Americans could save more than 400,000 trees if each family bought a roll of recycled toilet paper—just once. Recycled tissue products help protect ancient forests, clean water, and wildlife habitat. The most important thing you can do in your bathroom is to stop using virgin disposable tissue paper products. For tissues, use a hanky and for paper towels, use a microfiber cloth. They’re reusable and wash up really well.

The following tips will help you save money, reduce water use and get rid of some of the toxins that lurk in your bathroom!
