Water Saving Washroom Solution

02 April 2012

Sustainability and resource efficiency are a growing environmental concern across the world. Many organisations are striving to reduce their environmental impact and in the process save money by using less energy and natural resources.

Whilst there are numerous ways to save water, one simple solution could be the choice of soap in the washroom.

Independent research, commissioned by Deb, has shown that when using foam soap, people could use up to 45% less water than when using liquid soap.

Dr John Hines, Research and Development Director at Deb advises: “Research shows that for every 100 people employed, the use of foam soap for hand washing can equate to an annual water reduction of up to 56,000 litres and as warm water is usually used there are also savings to be made in energy use and CO2 emission.”

As World Water Day approaches, Dr Hines urges all organisations to consider the use of foam soap to help reduce their environmental impact and ultimately save time and money.
