Green tips for your home: detoxify your shower head

Shower heads

You can implement many strategies to ensure your home is greener, environmentally friendly and less toxic, both for you and for the earth. This post will talk about using a special type of shower head to detoxify your shower to ensure it is greener and healthier for you, your family.

Statistics show that hot water usage in an average home represents about 35% of the total power usage and the long, hot shower people love to enjoy is the largest part of hot water usage in an average home. A water efficient shower head can use up to 30% less water than a normal shower head and the best thing of all, it can be fitted to most showers.

An energy efficient shower head should have the certified WELS 3 star rating from the Australian Government.

It is really simple to install an energy efficient shower head to reduce the amount of water that comes through, which means less use of hot water, less energy usage. This is a really simple, cost-effective way to reduce the amount of water used. Many areas of the world are experiencing drought conditions and if everyone had an energy efficient shower head, it would reduce a great deal of stress on water usage.

Remember, water is a precious resource, without which all life would perish, so use it wisely.

The Australian government has created the Water Efficiency and Labelling and Standards (WELS) Scheme, a web site created by the Australian government aimed at helping consumers choose more efficient products to help them save water.

As you can see, there are so many ways to save the planet, which use up less energy, produce less pollution, save you more money and help your physical fitness. It's a win-win situation. So what are you waiting for?  Search Amazon.com for water efficient shower heads
