Various black bathroom faucets on a white background with the words "9 eco-friendly matte black bathroom faucets."Black bathroom sink faucets are on trend and – thanks to these nine WaterSense certified faucets – you can be stylish and sustainable!

So what makes a bathroom faucet eco-friendly? Well, as I mentioned in my post How to Design an Eco-Friendly Bathroom, making sure you have a low flow faucet is pretty much a must.

Every time you turn on the tap you have the opportunity to use less water than you would if you had a traditional faucet.

All while washing and brushing just as effectively as you would with a higher flow-rate. Still a little uncertain about the whole low flow faucet business? 

Let’s break it down. Then we’ll get into the matte black bathroom fixtures!

Black bathroom sink faucets are on trend. And thanks to brands like Moen, Delta and Vigo - you can save water in style with their low-flow, WaterSense labelled fixtures.

What is a Low Flow Faucet?

A standard bathroom faucet has a flow-rate of 2.2 gpm (gallons per minute). Installing a faucet that has a maximum flow rate of 1.5 gpm can reduce water consumption by 30 percent. Look for WaterSense labelled faucets to ensure you’re getting a fixture that has been certified by a third party. You can also read more about household water conservation on the WaterSense website.

I also want to note that ensuring your low flow faucet is durable is another must. Because there’s no point in installing a low flow faucet if it’s just going to leak and need replacing.

WaterSense certified faucets come in all kinds if finishes, but I’ve always been partial to a matte black bathroom faucet since it’s both timeless and contemporary. And I certainly am not the only one as black sink faucets are currently trending.

Also note, it’s extra eco-friendly to shop #secondhandfirst. Try searching for low flow black faucets on your local buy and sell or at somewhere like a Habitat for Humanity Restore. You never know, you might find exactly what you’re looking for!

Named as WaterSense Partner of the Year for 2010, Moen is well known in the plumbing fixture world for their durable, water-conscious faucets, which is why the builder of Our House in the Trees recommended them.
