Eco Friendly || Easy Bathroom Habits That Can Save The Earth


There are plenty of ways to save the planet, but the best way is to start at home. When you take the necessary measures at home, going green becomes a lot easier in everyday life. So, it makes sense if, like me, you are an eco-warrior! And, the only place to start is the bathroom. In fact, you are probably helping save the planet with your bathroom habits without even realising. Just take a look at the list below and see how many you can check off.

Not Washing Your Hands

Not everyone washes their hands after a number one. Or is that just me? Regardless, not washing your hands after you have been to the bathroom is a great way to save water. If you turn on the tap at every opportunity, you can waste litres of water. Ask yourself, do you need to wash every time you go to the toilet? Because if you do, you are just wasting water that could be better used elsewhere. If you are already a non-washer, keep up the good work!

Peeing In The Shower

Gross, right? For some people, peeing in the shower is disgusting. For others, it is a normal occurrence. What we can all agree on, however, is that it again saves water. Just because it is a little bit nasty doesn’t mean that it isn’t necessary. If you have to go and the shower is running, why not jump in and answer nature’s call? You can easily kill two birds with one stone.

Only Flush When Necessary

Flushing is not necessary all the time. Okay, it might be a little bit disgusting if you are a regular flusher. But, once you get used to it, you will save yourself a fortune on water bills. Plus, in the process, you will help the earth. Some people out there (men!) might even be doing this already. You might only think that this tip could be found in a funny post about bathroom habits. In reality, it is a deadly serious technique.

Reuse Bath Water

When someone has a bath, jump in afterwards. Dirty bathwater is the least of your troubles, especially when the water bill hits. Everyone who lives in the house is comfortable enough to reuse water after they have been in the bath. So, instead of letting it drain and jumping in the shower, don’t be afraid to follow in the last person’s footsteps. After all, you are all friends and recycling is important, whatever shape it takes.

Turn Off The Tap

While you are in the bathroom, you waste a lot of water without even realising. A few simple measures and you can stop this at the source, and it all revolves around turning off the tap. When you brush your teeth, when you wash your hands, or while you are shaving the water is constantly running. Well, it doesn’t have to be running because you can turn it on and off with the flick of a knob. It is a tap, after all! Instead of how much easier it makes your life, think about how much better it is for the planet.

In the grand scheme of things, creating new bathroom habits is just as important as your existing habits.
