In our modern world, it’s difficult to make it through the day without hearing about some new ecological disaster. If it isn’t garbage island, then it’s global warming, and if it isn’t global warming it’s water shortages. Because of the prevalence of these topics and their importance to our society, they’ve become a part of our collective mindset. Many customers go out of their way to frequent businesses that they feel are doing their part to protect the environment. Similarly, many people feel more comfortable and more motivated if their workplace is making efforts towards sustainability. One way that many businesses are accomplishing this is by switching to sustainable restroom supplies.
Changing things around in your business’ restroom might seem like a daunting task, or you may not see the value in it. But switching to sustainable restroom supplies won’t just save the environment; it will also save you money. One of the biggest ways to save while making your bathrooms green is by installing waterless urinals. Waterless urinals don’t use any water to operate, and save businesses an average of $225 a year per urinal in utility bills. They are also cheaper to install than most urinals because they don’t require a waterline going in to them.
Once you’ve got your waterless urinals, you’re going to want to maintain them with replacement cartridges. Waterless urinal cartridges are what makes waterless urinals work. Essentially, urine flows into the cartridge where it becomes trapped and sealed away from air. Because the urine is sealed away, there is no odor. As more liquid enters the cartridge, it forces excess liquids down the drain. These cartridges are easy to maintain and replace, and for optimal performance need to be replaced every three to six months, depending on use.
Now, your business is greener thanks to sustainable restroom supplies, and you get to reap the benefits of lower utility bills, better odor control, and less maintenance. It’s a win for the environment and a win for your business.
