Bathrooms are one of the most important places in a person's home, but their inherent nature will cause them to be wasteful from time to time. Luckily, there are a number of ways that homeowners can reduce their carbon footprints and decrease the amount of waste that is generated in the space.
Consider the amount of water that you use on a daily basis to shave or brush your teeth. Put limits on the flow of water coming out of the faucet, and only use it if you really need it. Another tip is to get rid of the paper cups and other expendable products, and instead opt for glasses that can be reused.
Lighting is another important consideration. If you're in a small apartment, ditch your incandescent bulbs and go for an LED light bar instead. These versatile fixtures can sit above a bathroom vanity with ease, and they use much less energy than the old-style bulbs.
Sustainability is a huge consideration in today's interior designs, so what sorts of ideas do you have to make a bathroom a bit more green?
