The best sustainable bathroom buys for 2021

Clean, serene and most importantly, green

Going green in the bathroom doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort or cleanliness. There are plenty of small changes you can make to your daily habits that will help reduce water waste. For example, turning off the tap whilst brushing your teeth, or only showering for as long as you need to. With a few steps, and a little help from technology – it’s possible to create a sustainable bathroom that is kind to our planet, and our conscience. As well as being mindful about how you use water, we’ve got a range of products to help you go even further...

6. Plants that thrive in a bathroom setting

Warmth, humidity, and low light. These are all conditions that bathroom friendly plants will absolutely thrive in. Snake plants look stunning and are easy to care for. They require little to no water – so if they live in your bathroom, you can probably rely on the moisture in the air to fulfil their watering needs. The ever popular Swiss cheese plant is another great candidate for the bathroom. It flourishes in warm conditions with little light, and practically nothing will stop it from growing. We recommend getting a moss pole to keep it upright as it grows.

Orchids need to be moist at all times but should never be over-watered, which means they can be tricky to look after. If you keep your orchid in the bathroom then it will thrive in the damp atmosphere. They can tolerate low light but will grow better in sunlight – making the bathroom windowsill the perfect spot.
