Top 5 Environmentally Friendly Choices You Can Make In Your Bathroom

October 30, 2019 | Blog

Environmentally friendly initiatives will help preserve the earth, but can also have a positive effect on your life. Environmentally friendly upgrades are usually cost-effective and can make your home a healthier place to live. Here are the top five ways you can make your bathroom more sustainable.

One: Install Low Flow Showerheads

Low flow showerheads decrease the amount of water being used without decreasing your water pressure. They are easy to install and will make a large difference on the environment and on your wallet.

Two: Use Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Materials

Conventional cleaning products can be harmful to both you and the environment. Instead of using products with harsh chemicals, try making homemade cleaning materials. For example, you can make an all-purpose disinfectant by mixing 2 cups of water, a few drops of natural soap and a few drops of tea tree and lavender essential oils. This can be used on virtually every surface except glass. There are plenty of other homemade cleaning recipes all over the internet.

Three: Buy Sustainable Bath Products

In the same vein as environmentally friendly cleaning materials, you should also try sustainable bath products. Buy bottle-free shampoo and conditioner bars. Use bars of soap instead of body wash. Get reusable makeup remover towels instead of one-time-use cloths.

Four: Change Your Lightbulbs

A simple change you can make in your bathroom is to change your older lights to LED lights. They use significantly less energy and they last a lot longer than traditional halogen lights.

Five: Invest in Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters use significantly less energy than tank heaters, take less time to heat up and never run out of hot water. Their lifespan is double that of a standard tank heater and less energy expenditure means lower utility bills. You can read more on this subject in our blog What’s the Buzz About Tankless Water Heaters.

Roberta C.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service!

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Ben A.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
