Happy Earth Day! April 22, 1970 was the first Earth Day, and the celebration of the environmental awareness has continued each year since. My darling mother’s father preached water conservation to her from an early age, and that conservation conversation is had on a frequent basis here at Places In The Home. Also from reading this blog you may know that my favorite travel destination and desert oasis is Las Vegas. Water conservation is indeed a big concern for Las Vegas, which sits in the middle of the Mojave Desert. I distinctly remember a conversation I had with an engineer from Las Vegas on a flight out to the desert. His firm worked on the concept, building, and installation of The Fountains of Bellagio. He explained to me how the water recycled from a well beneath the property for conservation and earth friendly responsibility. Kudos, Bellagio!
As I am considering replacing the not in use at the moment dressing area sink faucet set in the master bathroom, I am taking a few things into consideration. High on my list is water conservation, savings, reducing energy consumption, and as always- sustainable style.
The Virtue Widespread Bath Faucet from Pfister is the stylish and logical choice, all things better for the environment considered. With its brushed nickel finish, unique texture and elegant attention to detail, the Virtue Widespread Bath Faucet satisfies my desired function meets form meets style requirement.
The Virtue is WaterSense Certified, meaning it meets or exceeds EPA WaterSense Standards, which reduces water consumption by 30% and helps average households save up to $200 in their annual water bill, will satisfy my darling mother’s water conserving requirement. It’s a win-win situation for Earth Day and everyday, baby!
