WATER SAVING TOILET GADGET, THE INTERFLUSH, SHORTLISTED AS FINALIST FOR THE 2009 SUSTAINABLE HOUSING AWARDS
The INTERFLUSH made by Varyflush Limited has been shortlisted in the (Sustainability Innovation) category of The Sustainable Housing Awards 2009, organised by Inside Housing magazine. It literally saves throwing resources down the pan.
This awards scheme focuses on the best “green” social housing projects constructed in the UK, and the organisations responsible for them. The trophies will be presented at a suitably “eco” awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in London’s Park Lane on Friday 23rd October.
The Interflush is a piece of kit which fits on top of your WC siphon and connects to the front mounted flush handle.It means that your toilet only flushes when the handle is held down, releasing the handle stops the flush (when pan is clear), so it uses only exactly what water is needed. Fitting an Interflush will save approximately 30 litres of water per day, which in a metered household means that in 10 years an Interflush can save the homeowner more than £1,000!
Ted Stevens, Inside Housing’s events director and the organiser of the awards said: “We’ve had a terrific response, with hundreds of entries and the Interflush has done brilliantly to get shortlisted from such a huge field. Britain is leading the way on sustainable housing and innovative building techniques so we’re delighted we’re able to organise a ceremony to reward that organisations that are delivering best practice”.
Last year nearly 500 people attended the event, which was hosted by green campaigner, comedian and impersonator Alistair McGowan.
The sponsors of the awards include eps, United House, Axis, Sitex Orbis, Tarmac, Profile 22 and NHBC
