DEFRA Minister supports BMA’s Water Efficient Product Labelling Scheme

Richard Benyon, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has thrown his weight behind the BMA’s Water Efficient Product Labelling Scheme.

In a recent statement Benyon said: "Water is an invaluable resource which needs to be managed responsibly. Whilst Government and industry can help make it easier to save water, taking personal responsibility is at the heart of water conservation. People need access to clear advice on how they can save water so I am pleased to support the Bathroom Manufacturers Association in their work to develop a labelling scheme which provides people with an easy means to identify water efficient products.”

The statement from the DEFRA Minister shows that he and his department, fully support the work of the BMA in driving the quest for water and energy efficient bathroom products.

“Our members are delighted with the support from Mr Benyon,” said Yvonne Orgill, Chief Executive of the BMA. “It further encourages our members to design, develop and manufacture bathroom products which are water efficient and eco-friendly. WEPLS has grown rapidly from a germ of an idea to a benchmark scheme which is now being copied in Europe and wider afield. Our database holds the details of over 1,000 water-efficient bathroom products which, by default, have the lowest carbon footprint. The scheme is increasingly recognised by consumers and professionals alike and from the Government’s point of view it is an important tool in their drive to meet the Green Agenda.”
