Eco-Style - WC

Monday brings another Eco-Style post, and I'm loving this bathroom from Domino. I've never seen a concrete backsplash, but how very eco-chic, not to mention easy and cheap. Wooden sinks are quite popular these days - they're most often made of teak (because it is naturally water-resistant), but I've seen them made of walnut, oak and bamboo as well (they just need to be epoxied). Scroll down for more great eco-style sources.

Teak bathroom vessel sink from William Garvey. Also, see Canadian manufacturer Aura for more designs, or make your own: you need a little know-how to create the tight seams needed, then finish the sink by applying an epoxy-resin to make it water-tight.

These recycled porcelain tiles are from Crossville, Inc., and are produced in sleek, modern sizes and colours. See AFM Safecoat for a toxin-free, eco-friendly grout sealer.

The fabulous cork stools pictured above are the Vitra cork stool, available at Design Public.

These Shoo-foo low-impact bamboo towels are luxurious and soft - organic, eco-friendly, biodegradable, fair traded and naturally anti-bacterial.

Deck your bathroom out in eco-style with this bathroom set from Ecocentric, made with 100% recycled glass.

NOTE: I've never seen a recycled content or otherwise eco-friendly bathroom fixture. The most important thing here is to make sure you install an aerator, the single most effective and easy water conservation method for your home (no water pressure losses either)!
