Eco-Friendly Toilets

Part of making a commitment to organic living is water conservation—including your daily bathroom breaks.


Atlanta, Georgia-based VitrA manufactures eco-friendly toilets with a dual-flush technology system that allows you to conserve water. Two sizes are available: 0.8 gpf or 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush). The toilets save anywhere from 2,500 to 15,000 gallons of water annually, depending on family usage. You conserve approximately 40% more water with each flush.

“VitrA aspires to use the latest technology when creating environmentally friendly products, and the new Dual Flush is truly an innovative toilet for the home,” says Akgun Seckiner, the company’s vice president of plumbing products.

As an added bathroom bonus, these eco-toilets are constructed of a special material that prevents calcium buildup, and a hydraulic double-action system in the fill valves ensures immediate water shutoff, thereby reducing noise levels. The tank refills in about 25 seconds, completing discharge in 3.5 seconds.

Happy flushing!
