Richard Benyon, MP has thrown his weight behind the Bathroom Manufacturers Association’s Water Efficient Product Labelling Scheme.
Benyon, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, said: “Water is an invaluable resource which needs to be managed responsibly. Whilst Government and industry can help make it easier to save water, taking personal responsibility is at the heart of water conservation.
“People need access to clear advice on how they can save water so I am pleased to support the Bathroom Manufacturers Association in their work to develop a labelling scheme which provides people with an easy means to identify water efficient products.”
Yvonne Orgill, Chief Executive of the BMA, said members were “delighted” with the Minister’s support. “It further encourages our members to design, develop and manufacture bathroom products which are water efficient and eco-friendly,” she said.
“Our database holds the details of over 1000 water efficient bathroom products which, by default, have the lowest carbon footprint. The scheme is increasingly recognised by consumers and professionals alike and from the Government’s point of view it is an important tool in their drive to meet the Green Agenda.”
