Here are some other easy ways to "go green" in the bathroom:

Residential Master Bath
Check out new, attractive motion activated styles for residential sinks to help conserve water. In the shower, try a much-improved aerator. (Now it will rinse the shampoo out of your hair!)
Spend a bit more up front on fluorescents, and you’ll reap the rewards of energy savings and good color rendering for years to come. Bulbs now come in a variety of shapes so you can get creative! :)
If renovation is the plan, talk to your contractor about ways to move air, odors and moisture. Avoid mold growth in an attic or garage by making sure vents dump outside!
When redesigning, don’t insist the new toilet or sink be moved to the opposite side of the room. Use less construction materials by keeping water and waste lines in the same place.
