5 Easy Ways to Green Your Bathroom

  Put in Wood Floors
As long as you purchase sustainably harvested varieties, wood can be a wonderful option for a greener bathroom. Before you buy, look for a label stating that the wood has been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council, which means it has been harvested responsibly from trees that aren't endangered and from areas that aren't protected. You can also look for recycled or salvaged wood floors.

Worried about the water factor? If you're installing the floors yourself, add a coat of boat shellac or varnish to the wood for added protection. Alternatively, buy wood floors that have been commercially sealed with a no-VOC eco-friendly water sealer.
