Your daily routine can impact the environment, from taking your every morning shower to brushing your teeth before going to bed. Reducing this impact right at the source can make your everyday activities less wasteful and more efficient. There are several ways you can make your bathroom Eco-friendly and still enjoy the perks of a stylish space. Here are some of them.
Check on your water usage
Although taking fewer and shorter baths help to keep an eye on your water usage in the bathroom, you should also check on the type of shower and bath you have. A lot more goes beyond saving water. Why not consider a steel bath made of materials that can be recycled at the end of their service life? You already recycle cupboard plastics and packaging anyway.
Let in more natural light
Letting in more natural light in your bathroom is great for your grooming routine, just as it reduces your environmental footprint. More natural light means you won’t need to reach for the light switch often, thereby cutting on your energy usage. Add a few windows in your bathroom if you’re doing a complete renovation.
Go for VOC-free paints and finishes
VOCs stands for volatile organic compounds. These are chemicals emitted from different products, including household cleaning supplies, new furnishings, paints, varnishes, and cosmetics. Try to keep such products out of your bathroom to reduce your bathroom’s environmental footprint.
Everyone’s going green and becoming more conscious of the effect of their actions on the environment. The bathroom is one place where you can begin to take baby steps.
