Shower toilet ideas for a hygienic and eco-friendly bathroom

Looking to reduce your waste in the bathroom? Enter: shower toilets. They provide a next-level cleaning experience while helping you cut down on your toilet paper usage, which requires water and energy to produce.

Did you know that, according to Waterwise, an estimate of 30% of the water consumed in the home is used just to flush the toilet? Not only that, the Confederation of Paper Industries has reported that the UK uses 1.3m tonnes of toilet paper each year. Well, here comes the twist – households with shower toilets installed reduce the use of toilet paper by an average of 75%. Sounds good to us!

Thanks to VitrA, you can now choose from a variety of shower toilets to significantly reduce your toilet paper waste. From Aquacare, with its integrated water jet, to the versatile V-Care with water cleaning functions including different pressures, adjustable temperature and positions, drying features, a comfortable heated seat and more, there are so many options to choose from.
