Enviro-wise suggests that WCs and urinals are the most ‘water-greedy’ devices in our offices and buildings and that more water friendly systems should be fitted.
Different toilets will require different water-saving devices and there are even dual-flush toilets that increase or decrease the amount of water used depending on what is needed. Urinals can also be fitted with devices to stop them flushing when the building is not being used. Grey water systems which recycle water from other appliances will also make the office greener.
Enviro-wise suggests that we should do this as we need to be more sustainable in our use of water as severe shortages are predicted by 2009 if we carry on using water at the same rate.
