EPA names Home Depot the 2013 WaterSense Retail Partner of the Year!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized The Home Depot with a 2014 WaterSense® Retail Partner of the Year award.

The Home Depot was honored during the WaterSmart Innovations Conference for its commitment to water efficiency and outstanding efforts to support the WaterSense program during 2013.

In 2014 alone, The Home Depot helped customers save more than 47.8 billion gallons of water and over $403 million in water utility bills through the sale of WaterSense-labeled products.

Upgrading to WaterSense®

Replacing a standard 1.6 gallon-per-flush toilet with a new WaterSense® labeled high efficiency model can reduce water use by 20% or more. Replacing a pre-1994 model (3.5 gallon-per-flush toilet) can reduce it by 60% or more. That's more than 4,000 gallons per person per year. That would save enough water to wash 100 loads of laundry.

HOW TO CREATE AN ECO-FRIENDLY BATHROOM

From water-efficient bathroom fixtures to water-conserving dual-flush toilets, bathrooms are increasingly designed with eco-friendly features in mind. It’s easy to see why bathrooms are going green. Bathrooms require the largest amount of water usage in most homes, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Going green in the bathroom not only helps the environment, it also helps your wallet.
