(PRWEB UK) 9 July 2013
The new labelling scheme, that is to be put in place from next summer, will appear on a wide range of products from taps and showers to baths and toilets, reports HVP in the article ‘New Water-Efficiency Label Launched’ on July 4. The scheme helps to aid consumers easily compare bathroom products for their water efficiency, with information available in stores and online.
The labelling scheme follows the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Water White Paper ‘Water for Life’ that was published in 2011. The paper supported a voluntary water efficiency labelling that looked to help customers choose the most water efficient products. Following the paper’s publication, leading retailers and builders’ merchants set up the Water Using Products Working Group, assisted by the Waste & Resources Action Programme in order to put the labelling scheme in place.
The Environment Minister, Richard Benyon, told HVP that:
“We all have a responsibility to use water wisely so this scheme is great news. Customers will be able to choose bathroom products based on their water efficiency rating, which may help them to save money on water bills and protect this valuable resource for future generations.”
We Fix Now, who provide qualified and reliable emergency plumbers in Chingford, throughout London and the surrounding counties, follow developments in the plumbing industry with a keen interest. News of the water efficiency labelling scheme was of interest to the specialists at the company and one of their representatives commented on the news:
“It is welcome news that it will be easier for customers to easily find the most water efficient products for their home to help them save money and water. We all have a responsibility to save water wherever possible and having water efficient products in the home is one step towards this. To further save water, it is important that taps and pipes in the home are regularly checked for leaks to ensure no water is wasted unnecessarily.
