People throughout the world are adopting the mindset of conservation. More than just following an obligatory campaign slogan about conservation, folks are making changes in their lifestyles by actively seeking out the best options. Whether it be the types of chemicals being sprayed on their foods or how many paper towels to use when drying their hands, personal awareness is on the rise. And when you really think about it, almost everything we do has some sort of environmental impact.
There are a number of creative thinkers in the conservation field that make it their life’s work to find varied ways to keep out planet from complete extinction. Companies like Biffy manufacture a bidet toilet attachment that is the perfect answer to water conservation. Using less than half the water than your average toilet flush, the attachable bidet is one of the most innovative creations to find its way into the water-saving market. Not only do inventions like the bidet toilet attachment save water, but they also cut down on the use of toilet paper products and construction costs.
According to WorldWatch.org, Bill Worrell, manager of the San Luis Obispo County Integrated Waste Management Authority in California, discovered that consumption of paper products could be reduced by 50 to 90 percent through water and air based cleaning and drying methods."This may not seem significant until we realize that Americans use more than 3.2 million tons of toilet paper annually, cutting down 54 million trees in the process," he says. The production of each roll requires an average of 37 gallons [140 liters] of water. The average American uses 57 sheets of toilet paper per day, about 3.7 gallons of water per day figured for just for the manufacturing process.
Some people believe that if they decide to make the decision to go the way of the bidets that they will need to install a while new fixture. This simply isn’t true. Attachable bidets are just as thorough as a fixed system and are a lot less invasive on the space in your bathroom. Financially, it’s just a better, cost-effective decision to make.
