What Does ‘Eco-friendly’ Mean?

‘Eco-friendly’ means a reduced impact on the environment. A toilet can be eco-friendly in numerous ways, from using recycled materials during construction to being designed for longevity to decrease the carbon footprint. One of the main ways toilets can be eco-friendly is by being water-efficient and promoting sustainable practices by conserving water.

The conserving water usage is used mainly during flushing. An efficient toilet model can reduce the water used per flush from 20-60% over a standard model. Considering how often people flush daily, a water-efficient toilet can translate into significant savings.

Low-Flow Flushing Toilets

Low-flow toilets are the standard for water efficiency. Modern low-flow toilets utilize innovative flushing systems that rely on gravity, pressure assistance, and even dual-flush options to ensure effective waste removal with less water. The result is that these toilets use substantially less water than regular models while offering quality performance to meet your daily needs.

EPA’s WaterSense Program

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program offers a platform for manufacturers to produce and consumers to select water-efficient products that meet rigorous criteria. Toilets that bear the WaterSense label are 20% more water-efficient than the average products in that category. So, if you want a more efficient, eco-friendly toilet, look for a WaterSense label on the model.

The Benefits of Eco-friendly Toilets

Eco-friendly toilets provide a host of benefits:

Environmental Benefits:

  • Water conservation: Water efficiency daily results in substantial water savings, meaning less strain on the earth’s water resources.
  • Reduced wastewater discharge: Lower water usage equals a reduced amount of wastewater produced by your home—contributing to protecting local water bodies from pollution.
  • Lower environmental impact: Eco-friendly toilets, designed for durability, have a smaller manufacturing and disposal carbon footprint.

Financial Benefits:

  • Lower water bills: Less water usage equals less money spent on your bills.
  • Increased home value: Eco-friendly features are attractive selling points for potential buyers, enhancing your property’s value.
  • Long-term investment: These toilets are built to last, requiring less maintenance and repair—saving you future replacement costs.

Toilets like these often feature advanced ventilation systems for odor control, operate quietly to reduce noise pollution, and come in various styles and designs to complement your bathroom décor.
