Geberit is one such brand, and as an Official Partner, we are proud to be connected with them. Their commitment to sustainability is evident in their products, manufacturing processes, and their continued efforts towards eco-friendly practices. In this blog, we delve into the ways Geberit is leading the way in sustainable bathroom systems.
Geberit’s Sustainable Products
Geberit’s product range is designed to promote sustainability. Their bathroom systems are built to last and are typically used for decades. Geberit’s WC cisterns are a shining example of their dedication to sustainability. Every cistern sold saves water, making it an eco-friendly option for homes and other buildings. The cisterns also come with dual flush options.
Geberit follows the Ecodesign principle, which means that every new product must be more eco-friendly than the previous model.

Reducing the impact on the environment. Without sacrificing quality, function, or durability for sustainability.

Environmental Benefits Of AquaClean Toilets
Did you know that the average household gets through 27.5 kilograms of toilet paper every year? A Geberit shower toilet can reduce the amount of wood used for toilet paper by 61 kilograms per annum. This equates to a tree trunk measuring 1.7 metres high and 30 centimetres in diameter.
Cleaning with water
Cleaning with water uses less water than cleaning with toilet paper. The production of toilet paper requires 2,350 litres of water per household per year. In comparison, the spray functionality of the AquaClean Mera Comfort uses just 1,500 litres. This is an annual saving of 850 litres of water, equating to almost 6 bathtubs of 150 litres each.
Saves energy and toilet paper
With a shower toilet from Geberit, you can count on high quality and low operating costs. All Geberit AquaClean models feature an economy mode. This ensures they consume no more than 0.5 watts when in standby. What’s more, this also means a household can save around 212 rolls of toilet paper a year and around £50.00.
