3 simple ways to make your bathroom greener


Start by purchasing a low-flow showerhead for your bath, this will reduce the water flow by up to 30 percent without cutting back on the water pressure. A low-flow toilet that only uses 1.6 gallons of water or less per flush is also available. If your toilet is older than 1995 it is more than likely you are flushing away three to seven gallons per flush so it might be wise to update. As an added bonus both of these options will also save money on your water bill each month.

Towels made from organic cotton are becoming more readily available with so many different styles and colors to choose from. These towels are not only soft but are excellent for sensitive skin. They also require a lot fewer pesticides to make than regular cotton towels. Your vinyl shower curtain PVC’s (the plastic in the curtain) can be disruptive to your hormones and the toxins can become airborne. Try replacing it with a cotton duck curtain.

Organic Towels from Crate & Barrel

A great alternative to regular candles is 100 percent beeswax candles which do not give off any toxins and are all natural when lit.
