Let's say that you're creating a top-to-bottom eco-friendly bathroom. You've got your sustainable wood flooring. Your low-flow showerhead. Your energy-efficient lighting. To that, we say, well done. But there's one more thing that you'll need to include if you want your bathroom to be truly sustainable.

Don't forget about eco-friendly shower curtains! Not only will they bring a dose of style and luxury to your bathroom, but they're good for the planet and for your health, too. They're created without harsh chemicals and rendered in natural fibers to boot. Think cotton, hemp, and linen, all of which are sustainably sourced and biodegradable.
