Go Eco Go: 4 Ways to be More Eco-friendly

Alas, the water shortage in San Diego has provided us with some inspiration: to be more eco-friendly. Here are 4 ways to get in touch with your ecological self:

1. Water Conservation Techniques

Toto Neorest Toilet: Normally, toilets account for about 30% of the home's indoor water consumption. With the Neorest flushing system, you can reduce your water use by 20-60%. The Neorest toilet complies with the EPA WaterSense standards meaning it is much more efficient than most other toilets.

2. Eco-friendly fabrics

Bamboo has come a long way. Previously bamboo flooring and screens were not durable; even a pair of heels would punch through. Now, we see that an elegant material can also be stable, highly renewable and biodegradable. Windochine creates beautiful textiles made of bamboo and other native grasses of China and Southeast Asia. They are hand woven from indigenous renewable fibers and can be used as window treatments, screens, or wall coverings.

3. LED Lighting

This type of lighting is long-lasting, energy-efficient and free of toxic chemicals. It is focused in that it emits light in a specific direction unlike other bulbs that give off light and heat in all directions. Check out a sleek LED light that would look good in any room:
