So, you’re thinking about updating that bathroom. You’ve learned about dual flush toilets, low flow faucets and shower heads, and maybe you’re thinking about hitting the flea markets this weekend in search of reclaimed items that you can use in your fresh bathroom. Have you considered going a step further by installing more green elements like motion sensors for light sources so that the lights will automatically turn off when no one is in the room?
Or think about installing a greywater system that allows shower and sink water to double as irrigation. This system is a little more involved, but by installing separate pipes to transport water to the mulch basins in your garden, you could water your plants while you wash your hands! And the flooring you choose to install can be eco-friendly too. Think recycled cork or rubber when replacing that old laminate.
