Tips for a Greener Bathroom - Save Energy & Water with your Toilet

On average, toilets are the single largest use of water inside of a house.

Saving Energy in the Bathroom - Water Saving Toilet Ideas

On average, toilets are the single largest use of water inside of a house. There are a couple of different options to save water with your toilet. Any of these will save you thousands of gallons per year:

1. Retrofit the toilet with a water-saving device from your local hardware store

2. Place one or two one-quart plastic weighted beverage bottles in the toilet tank to displace water flushed.

3. Or, you can always splurge for a new low-flush toilet!

4. Use your waste basket for miscellaneous bathroom wastes. Flushing garbage wastes water and can cause treatment problems.
