Restroom Sanitation and the Environment
Restrooms are, in fact, one of those rooms that require a lot of attention, especially when it comes to cleaning. And with that, comes the responsibility to make it easier, safer, faster and better for individuals and the environment. Coincidentally, with the advances in restroom technology, it is getting easier to make restroom sanitation and the environment work harmoniously together to create a healthy atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. The following are some helpful hints to keeping your restroom sanitation environmentally friendly.
Use less water
One of the most useful ways to make the restroom cleaning process more eco-friendly, is by utilizing products that reduce water consumption. Studies have shown that 70 percent of overall water usage is from bathrooms, which makes water saving products an essential commodity.
Low flush, automatic toilet flushers are not only helpful for forgetful children, but they are also great for the environment. By using these flushers, you can reduce the amount of water used every time you flush (typically 9 liters) to 6 liters of water or less.
It’s common for people, especially children, to leave faucets running longer than necessary when washing hands. A hands-free faucet can reduce over half of the water used daily by simply running only when necessary- not the whole time.
Use fewer resources
Taking advantage of touch free restroom technologies is a great way to limit the use of resources. Below are a couple of examples.
Environmental disruption and waste can be significantly reduced by switching to energy-efficient, fast-working hand dryers. Even recycled paper isn’t a contender for the efficient hand dryer- it takes 7,000 gallons of water, 360 gallons of oil, 158 million BTUs of energy, and 86 pounds of pollutants go into the atmosphere when making recycled paper.
Mounted soap dispenser
In addition to preventing the spread of germs, hands-free soap dispensers reduce waste by automatically releasing an ideal amount of soap when motion is detected, instead of allowing children to pump unnecessary amounts of soap that will simply get washed down the drain without much purpose.
Green materials and ecological design are the cutting-edge ways to implement sound health and hygiene practices, ensuring that clean water, clean air, and healthy habitats remain available for everyone over time. Since restrooms require a great deal of energy and host a number of germs, it’s even more necessary for individuals to use eco-friendly products for illness prevention, as well as for environmental conservation.
