Green design is the way of the future and Bay Plumbing Supply & Showroom is a strong supporter of the green movement. Products are chosen with an emphasis on their environmentally friendly qualities. These qualities include: reduced toxicity, reusability, energy efficiency, eco-responsible packaging, recycled packaging, recycled content, manufactured with minimal environmental impact, and minimal or no artificial materials. Bottled water will not be found because the showroom offers yummy filtered city water in cups made from 100% compostable and biodegradable plant-based and renewable resources. The accounting department offers statements on-line instead of printing and mailing. The warehouse recycles cardboard, pallets, brass and copper, packing materials and plastics.
The United States, with 4% of the world's population, is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, emitting almost 25% of the global carbon dioxide a year.
The water industry estimates that an average person uses 3,000 gallons of water monthly, so as a family of 4 would use 12,000 gallons for bathing, cooking, washing, recreation and watering.
In households not using water-efficient fixtures, toilets used the most water on a daily basis (20 gallons a person a day) and showers used (13.3 gallons per person per day).
Minor changes at home can add up to real benefits for the planet.
