Your guide to the sustainable and environmentally friendly bathroom
The aspects that you really think through before making your purchase will reduce your ecological footprint in the long term – and benefit your family’s health. Whether you just want to change little things or totally rebuild your bathroom, the hansgrohe whitepaper The green bathroom will guide you through all the planning and implementation stages. The topics in the whitepaper include:
A healthy home environment and excellent indoor air quality
Resource conservation and systematic recycling
The independent ecological seals of approval you can rely on (this will be different in South Africa)
Feel-good healthy light in the bathroom... and so much more.
“Durability is by far the most important factor from an ecological perspective. Wash basins and bath tubs with a long service life make up for a few elements relating to the material that may not be absolutely perfect.”
Barbara Bauer from the Austrian Institute for Building Biology and Ecology in Vienna, 2021.
