Did you know that introducing foam soap into bathrooms could make a signiﬁcant difference in the amount of soap and water used? When pumped from the dispenser, these lightweight soaps are mixed with air to about the consistency of shaving cream. Because users donít have to lather up, it reduces the amount of time standing with the water ﬂowing by about 10 seconds per user bringing the average time spent down from 30 to 20 seconds. Because the foam is easier to rinse, that requires less water
too. And in case you arenít convinced, consider that foam users require 40 percent less soap. Thatís both a signiﬁcant cost and environmental savings!
