A look at in­tel­li­gent faucets that are sen­si­tised to the en­vi­ron­ment

Who doesn’t love a hot bath? At the end of a long, hard day, there are a few greater joys and com­forts than slip­ping into a bub­bling shower and let­ting the wa­ter wash away your pains— men­tal and phys­i­cal. Or how about that habit of keep­ing the warm wa­ter run­ning while you wash your face or shave each morn­ing. All this feels great but it’s also ter­ri­bly waste­ful. Show­ers by them­selves con­sume twice more wa­ter than the old- school bucket bath. Faucets don’t let you see the tem­per­a­ture of the wa­ter com­ing out so in the end you waste sev­eral min­utes ( and litres) ad­just­ing the hot and cold taps. In or­der to change that, com­pa­nies now of­fer eco- friendly prod­ucts that re­duce your im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the lux­ury as­pect of a great bath­room. Here’s how to com­pletely en­joy style and a clean con­science.
