Bathrooms are often small in size, but can have a big environmental impact. Fortunately, you don't have to give up style to create a more sustainable loo.

TOP ROW

1 Smart, sustainable and stylish!
2 This cheerful shower curtain by Amy Butler ($39.99) is made from organic cotton.
3 Kohler's Purist showerhead ($64) uses only 1.75 GPM of water, but feels like a normal showerhead.
4 Replacing an old and inefficient toilet should be a top priority. Toto's Aquia dual-flush toilet ($214) lets you choose how much flush you need. Its modern shape and simple design also means it's easier to clean!
5 This wood mat from CB2 ($29.95) is made from sustainable acacia and its slatted design provides better air circulation and less chance for moisture issues.

BOTTOM ROW

6 Aura, the low-VOC paint from Benjamin Moore ($61.99/gallon), is now available in a Bath & Spa version that is specially formulated to resist mildew and comes in more modern, matte finish.
7 These small, durable wire baskets from Crate & Barrel ($12.95) are the perfect size to hold small bathroom.
8 Finishing touches like this bamboo soap dish from IKEA ($1.99) and floating beeswax candles from Big Dipper Wax Works ($8.50) help to tie the space together.
9 Towels are a good way to quickly add a punch of color to a bathroom. These towels from CB2 ($3.99-24.95) fit the bill and are made from a bamboo blend.
10 This solid birch mirror from IKEA ($69.99) compliments the other elements without being overly fussy.
