Are you trying to go green? Experts say if you want to start living a “greener” lifestyle, your bathroom is a great place to start! Some simple adjustments to a bathroom can reduce its impact on the environment.

Here are a few tips to green it up:

  • Installing aerators on the faucet and showerhead will reduce the amount of water used.
  • Faucets and showerheads with aerators use half the water flow with twice the power. If they were used nationwide, aerators could save 250 million gallons of water a year.
  • Using a low-flow toilet will use less water.
  • Replacing a tanked water heater with a tankless model will reduce the amount of energy consumed and the cost to heat water.
  • A tankless water heater will heat only what is needed, when it’s needed.
  • Compact fluorescent bulbs use less energy than incandescent bulbs and last much longer.
  • When redecorating, look for paint with a low volatile organic compounds (VOC) label. These paints are less toxic.
  • Even little things like selecting all-natural fabrics can help make your bathroom more green. Plus all your friends will think you are so hip and ahead of the times!
