Conserve Water: Our Most Valuable Resource

Saving water at the office is important, too. Commercial and institutional buildings account for up to 17% of publicly supplied water use, so it's important to look for ways to reduce water usage in your facilities.1

With new water-saving products, it's easier than ever to decrease your building's water usage. A great place to start is the restroom, which accounts for 37% of the overall building's water. Replacing older, less efficient faucets and fixtures can go a long way toward saving water and decreasing your water costs.

To reduce your water footprint, look for products that comply with the following water saving standards.
