What is Green Plumbing?

GreenPlumbers USA

GreenPlumbers USA is an innovative, national training and accreditation program that assists plumbers in understanding their role in the environment and public health.

The organization’s goal is to train and deploy a green army of thousands of plumbers to promote the benefits of water conservation and the reduction of GHG emissions. The focus is on changing consumer and plumbing behavior through the use of energy efficiency and water saving technologies.

As a grassroots effort, the plan is a voluntary one that can be implemented quickly without legislation or regulation. This is not an effort to stop using water and other resources but to keep them flowing. But to use them more efficiently, cost effective and environmental friendly.

Origins

Green plumbing was a brain child of the Australian people because of a draught that was so bad that they resorted to toilet to faucet type- conservation. The country came up with a mindset to help them and put in place conservation and ideas of conservation that would help the individual and the country as a whole.

We were given the opportunity to see what was happening to them but not our country and use their experience to help ourselves. This is what a green plumber is-Conservation is not a responsibility of one person in Canada that turns the tap lower or a guy in the corn fields that does not dump that diesel filter on the ground or a person flushing old mineral spirits down the toilet. It is mind set for all of us to use our resources wisely so they will last for forever.
