There are many brands that focus environmental sustainability from development through to the selection of materials and production, taking into account the possible environmental impact and compatibility.

Starting with resource-saving manufacture, involving water treatment and heat recovery processes, products to help to save water. Designing optimum use of space, conserving our water resources by every means possible.

For example, the inside of Duravit's Paiova bathtub is ergonomically and intelligently shaped to ensure maximum bathing fun with minimum water consumption. Duravit had already reduced the amount of water required for flushing in the 1980s from the normal 9-14 litres to just 6 litres. Today it offers WCs that can flush hygienically using 4.5 litres of water. The dual-flush button also saves precious water. With the McDry urinal, the manufacturer proves that water can be done away with altogether. Alternatively, the Architec urinal flushes automatically with just 1 litre. Wondergliss-coated ceramics and glass make aggressive cleansers unnecessary. Duravit tubs offer full comfort with economical water consumption. Light and colour programs with LEDs cut electricity consumption by two thirds.

In its manufacturing facilities many manufacturing companies have systems for recycling water and the waste heat in the ceramic firing and drying processes is returned to the production process. Waste wood and chippings in the manufacture of bathroom furniture are recycled and used as fuel.

Consideration of environmental impacts in the choice of materials, production processes, use of resources and recycling, and organisation of the workplace, have been an integral part of many bathroom manufacturers ethos over the last decade.

Whether it�s products that save water in use or manufacturing processes that minimise the use of resources � "green" thinking is engrained in everyday life with many bathroom manufacturers.

Production waste is separated and recoverable materials are press compacted in separate categories at factory for optimum disposal and recycling. However, even small technical details have a significant effect: the systematic optimisation of the compressed-air plant saves valuable energy in the production process.

Duravit and many other companies and designers feel good design is not just about looks but also about practicality and sustainability. This applies equally to the materials used and to the form. After all, who wants design that comes with an expiry date? This is why many manufacturers offer fashionable and timelessly modern forms for products and ranges.

A sustainable approach practised by companies that are, within their own range of activities, taking positive steps on the path to sustainability.
