Go Green in the Restroom With Bobrick

If you’re on a mission to go green, and you have a Bobrick paper towel dispenser, you’re already one step closer to your sustainability goals.

Bobrick, a global manufacturer of washroom equipment and accessories, has recently defined their own green initiative by creating what’s called Bobrick Green™. Bobrick Green™ is Bobrick’s way of saying, “Hey, we’ve got your back” to establishments striving to implement their own sustainability programs. Bobrick is dedicated to complying with the US EPA Reduce & Reuse Resource Conservation Initiative by designing restroom accessories that either use less paper or were manufactured using recycled materials.

Bobrick uses Type-304 stainless steel to build its towel dispensers, soap dispensers and other washroom accessories. Any Bobrick accessories from the ConturaSeries™, TrimLine™ and ClassicSeries™ are going to contain anywhere from 50% to 70% post-industrial recycled stainless steel mixed with virgin iron and ferrous alloys. This is just one way in which Bobrick strives to help organizations “go green” and achieve LEED certifications.

It’s easy to find Bobrick paper towel and restroom tissue dispensers that are designed to waste less paper, which saves Mother Earth some trees and you a little spending cash. Look for ConturaSeries™ folded paper towel dispensers that feature a built-in TowelMate which dispenses one towel at a time, reducing towel waste by 20%.

Bobrick ConturaSeries™ Paper Towel Dispensers are made from 69% recycled stainless steel and reduce towel usage by 20%.

Or you could go with a Bobrick Universal Automatic Roll Paper Towel Dispenser. Automatic towel dispensers have proven to waste less paper and are also easier to maintain. Bonus!

Another option when going green in the restroom is eliminating paper waste all-together by using a hand dryer.  Bobrick TrimLine™ Automatic Hand Dryers skip the paper towels, use warm air to dry your digits, and can save you up to 95% in operating costs.

Last but not least – the Baby Changing Station.  I know you’ve seen that cute Koala logo (the one with the adorable koala wearing a diaper) but did you know Koala Kare® is a proud member of the Bobrick family?  Koala brand Baby Changing Stations are manufactured from both pre- and post- consumer recycled content.

The Koala Kare KB101-00 Vertical Mount Baby Changing Station is made from 46% recycled polyethylene.
