Saving Water: A Practically Green Webinar

By
Saving Water: A Practically Green WebinarWater saving products are a favorite topic of the Professor’s, so Practically Green‘s recent webinar that featured expert panelists from American Standard, the EPA’s WaterSense program, and a variety of other organizations was a treat to join.

Michele Hudec, vice president of product and business development at American Standard, was selected as a panelist because of the company’s water conservation activism, as well as its investment in developing such an impressive selection of stylish, high-performing, water-saving products. American Standard offers the most WaterSense-certified toilets that also achieved the highest MaP score for bulk removal than of any of its competitors. All of American Standard’s bathroom faucets are WaterSense approved, and the FloWise collection of low-flow shower heads are recommended by Consumer Reportsfor their performance and energizing spray. The company also offers a full line of water efficient commercial products including toilets, faucets, and urinals that require a pint of water or less.
Stephanie Thornton from the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program was also a great guest, as she was able to explain the many benefits of the program. The WaterSense label makes it easy to find water-efficient products and also provides a neutral, third-party verification of a product’s claims about water use and performance. The Professor was impressed to learn that approximately 4,000 products currently carry the WaterSense label. The WaterSense website also offers a “We’re for Water” Pledge, a calculator to help you determine how much water you can save by switching to WaterSense-approved products, and a fun quiz to test your knowledge about water conservation.
