  • Asko dishwashers conserve both water and electricity.
  • Conventional showerheads spout 4 to 5 gallons of water per minute; Kohler’s MasterShower Eco Showerhead uses less than half that amount.
  • Composting toilets, such as this one by Sun-Mar, turn human waste into compost and can reduce household water consumption by at least 25 percent.
