Tips For Going Green in the Bathroom From Moen


Visitors: 245

Going green doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Canadians today want environmentally responsible products in their home – but they’re not willing to sacrifice quality or style. Retailers have responded to the consumers trending with a great selection of products. One example is the Banbury collection from Moen. Using less water doesn't mean a reduction in the quality or power of your faucets and showers. Consumers are concerned about the environment and are interested in using products which save precious resources… but at the same time, they don’t want to sacrifice a product’s performance in the process

Selecting an Environmentally Friendly Faucet

According to Statistics Canada (www.statcan. ca), in 2004 the average daily residential water flow was 329 litres per capita. By installing a water-saving aerator in your bath faucet, such as Moen’s Water Saving Aerator, you can reduce water flow from the standard 8.3 litres per minute (L/min) to 5.7 L/min – reducing overall consumption by 30 percent.

Banbury bathroom faucets feature Moen’s flow-optimized aerator that allows water to flow at 5.7 litres per minute (L/min), versus traditional aerators which flow at 8.3 L/min. This aerator provides consumers the sensational water experience they are accustomed to, while reducing water usage by up to 32 percent. Banbury also joins a variety of other Moen faucets to receive the WaterSense® label, indicating the fixture has met the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) guidelines as an environmentally responsible and efficient product.

The Banbury bath suite offers two-handle centreset faucets that feature low- or high-arc spouts, making tasks such as washing your hands and face or filling a glass of water more convenient. And the benefits of this collection extend into the shower as well. The Banbury suite features a single-handle shower faucet and single-handle tub/shower faucet, both offering a large showerhead that creates a wider spray pattern for a great showering experience through full-body coverage.

The Banbury bathroom suite is available in today’s most popular finishes including Chrome and LifeShine® Classic Brushed Nickel.

The Banbury bathroom suite meets ADA requirements for the physically challenged. All products feature Moen’s lifetime limited warranty to ensure superior quality.
