Eco-Friendly Bathroom Products & A Giveaway

March 17, 2012

Eco-friendly bathroom products are on the rise.  The design, aesthetic feel and overall functionality have dramatically improved in recent years and increasingly my clients are asking me to consider these options when redesigning their bathrooms.  I am currently working on a few bathroom remodeling projects, so I thought I would share some ideas for how to make your bathroom more eco-friendly. And, be sure to read on to learn more about our Green Giveaway!

{Change out your current shower head for a low flow shower head like EcoFlow model by Waterpik.  Yes, Waterpik!  I recently met a few of their reps at the Design Blogger’s Conference in LA and was elated when they offered me an EcoFlow showerhead as a Giveaway for our readership. Read on for more details on how to get yours!}

{Use alternative healthy paints on your walls and trim. These include: Low Odor or Low VOC Paint, Zero VOC Paint, and Non-toxic or Natural Paint.  My FAVORITE is the Natura line from Benjamin Moore. It has no VOCs and is available in all Benjamin Moore colors.  That means you don’t have to sacrifice color when going “green.”}

{Purchase a low-flow or dual-flush toilet to save water–which means you will save money on your water bill!  You can find these toilets at your local Home Depot or Lowes}

{Choose energy-efficient lighting.  It used to be that these light fixtures were boring, but not anymore.  I like Stacy Garcia’s line of energy-efficient bathroom lighting at shopbathroomlighting.com.  Check it out!}

{And, incorporate a countertop made out of recycled products.  Green Countertops Direct offers some great options.}

By going green in your home, you will help to reduce emissions and excess waste that damages the eco-system and atmosphere. More importantly, in hard economic times being more eco-friendly in your home can help you save money. Being green does not have to be expensive (or ugly) and is in fact very cost effective if done correctly.

Our Green Giveaway!  Ok, now to share the details of our giveaway.  Decor by Denise is pleased to announce the giveaway of an energy efficient Waterpik shower head. The innovative design of the EcoFlow Waterpik showerhead allows for water-saving efficiency while keeping the water pressure comfortable.

    I’m going to try no VOC paint for my bathroom. I’ve been gradually remodeling it and need to paint next. I will also look at the lighting and countertop options you suggested. The Waterpik shower head looks good too.
