Our Niagra Earth Low Flow Showerhead saves URecFit up to 30 percent on energy and water. With the new showerheads, we save about 5,000 gallons of water per day.

Bottle Filling Stations

Bottle filling stations are located at all water fountains throughout the building. URecFit uses Elkay water bottle filling stations, which reduces our dependency on disposable plastic water bottles. The green tickers indicate that URecFit has helped eliminate waste from more than 200,000 disposable plastic bottles and counting.
