Creating more sustainable and eco-friendly restrooms means considering several variables to reduce waste, encourage resource efficiency, and improve sustainability in general. At hybridH2O, we help you reach your goals by offering high-quality, sustainable restroom products.

How to Choose Sustainable Restroom Products

When planning or assessing sustainable bathrooms, keep the following important factors in mind:

  • Water Utilization: To save water, consider sustainable restroom products like our waterless urinals. They work by allowing the urine to flow through a grate at the bottom, entering a small well. As more urine is added, it flows through a pipe and down the drain.
  • Energy Efficiency: Incorporating things like motion-activated lighting is another way to save energy and ensure your restrooms are eco-friendly. Additionally, consider selecting ventilation systems, lighting fixtures, and hand dryers that use less electricity.
  • Supplies and Materials: To lessen the environmental impact of shipping, choose locally available bathroom supplies if possible. Also, when designing a new restroom, consider environmentally friendly flooring materials like cork, bamboo, or recycled tiles.
  • Natural Ventilation: To minimize the need for mechanical equipment, restrooms can be designed to maximize natural ventilation. This can be done by using low-VOC products and other products that contain little or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • Longevity: Seek products that last longer, such as the sustainable restroom products we offer. One that is both popular and effective are our waterless urinal replacement cartridges, which last up to two to three times longer than traditional cartridges.
