Caroma adds Green Depot as Major Supplier in Northeast
Helping provide the Northeast with greener options
HILLSBORO, OREGON – March 10, 2009 – Caroma, the leader in dual flush toilets, urinals, and stylish bathroom sinks, is pleased to announce Green Depot, the nation’s leading supplier of environmentally-friendly building and living products, will be stocking and distributing Caroma high efficiency toilets in all stores throughout the Northeast.
“Caroma provides a cost-effective, quality product that saves considerable water with every use,” states Sarah Beatty, founder and president of Green Depot. “At Green Depot, our mission is to provide easily accessible and affordable green building and living products. We are proud to support Caroma for leading the way as the inventor of dual flush technology and producing more WaterSense labeled toilets than any other manufacturer.”
All Caroma high efficiency toilets are two button flushing systems. The reduced flush button releases 0.8 gallons per flush for liquid and paper waste. The full flush button releases 1.28-1.6 gallons per flush (depending on model) for solid waste. This can save up to 44 percent more water than the standard 1.6 gallon single flush toilet and 74 percent more water than a 3.5 gallon single flush toilet. A major benefit of the Caroma toilets is the trap size, which is nearly double the North American standard, enabling the system to eliminate clogging and double flushing.
According to Derek Kirkpatrick, North America General Manager, “We are extremely excited to be chosen by Green Depot as their supplier for high efficiency dual flush toilets. Green Depot is strongly devoted to sustainable products, and with Caroma’s products for water conservation, they can help the average family of four save at least 5,000 gallons of water per year if replacing an older 1.6-gallon toilet and up to 30,000 gallons per year if a five gallon toilet is replace. Combine this with additional products like low-flow showerheads offered by Green Depot, and substantial water savings are realized from just one family.”
Since 1941, Caroma has been a world leader in quality and innovation of bathroom products, continually providing reliable, high efficiency toilet suites and urinals and stylish sinks. With 41 WaterSense labeled toilets – more than any company in the industry - and complimentary, stylish sinks, Caroma offers award-winning products that help preserve the world's most valuable resource - water. Combining quality, water-conserving products with superior customer service, Caroma has been chosen by businesses and households worldwide for exceptional performance and stylish design.
