Earth Overshoot Day marks the critical point in the year when human demand for natural resources exceeds what the earth can replenish in a year. This disturbing reality means that within five months, we are consuming resources faster than the planet can regenerate, putting a tremendous strain on our environment.
The urgency of this situation requires immediate action to reduce the ecological impact and protect the planet for future generations. The good news is that making a difference doesn’t have to be scary or expensive. Small changes in our daily habits and the adoption of new technologies can push the date of Earth Overshoot Day, giving the earth a chance to regenerate and recover.
Take, for example, our homes. By choosing high-efficiency appliances and using them wisely, we can move Earth Overshoot Day by a significant six days. These simple changes can have a profound effect on the well-being of our planet.

- GROHE has introduced a groundbreaking innovation, SilkMove ES technology, designed to save energy in the field of wash basin faucets. Conventional faucets often cause wasted energy consumption when used in the standard middle position. They release a mixture of hot and cold water every time, even for simple tasks like brushing your teeth or washing your hands.The excellent SilkMove ES (Energy Saving) cartridge effectively addresses this issue. With this technology, if the faucet remains in its default center position, only cold water will flow, eliminating unnecessary energy use. Hot water is available only when the lever is turned to the left, providing convenience without compromising on energy conservation. Thanks to this clever design, GROHE’s SilkMove EN empowers users to be environmentally conscious without any inconvenience, making an important contribution to bathroom sustainability.
- GROHE has taken a proactive approach to water conservation with their EcoJoy technology integrated into their faucets. By incorporating a mousseur that restricts the flow, these faucets can significantly reduce water consumption. Instead of the usual ten liters per minute, they consume only five liters per minute, effectively cutting water use in half. In addition, the smart design includes an aerator that mixes air with water, maintaining a pleasant powerful water jet. This innovative combination ensures that water is saved without compromising the faucet’s performance or comfort. With GROHE’s EcoJoy technology, users can embrace a sustainable lifestyle without sacrificing the pleasant experience of using their faucets.
- GROHE EcoJoy technology offers a smart solution to save water and energy during the rainy season. By incorporating a flow limiter, the flow of water is effectively reduced without compromising the power of the stream, thanks to the use of small nozzles. For example, the GROHE Vitalio Start 100 The hand shower only consumes 5.5 liters per minute, an incredibly low rate. This unique feature earned it the prestigious titles of “test winner” and “environmental tip” from the famous German consumer organization and foundation, “Stiftung Warentest.”
- Incorporating shower thermostats into your bathroom not only improves convenience but also promotes water and energy conservation. With the ability to maintain the desired water temperature throughout the shower, there is no need for frequent changes, which ultimately saves time and resources. The Grohtherm 1000 and similar models go one step further by integrating the GROHE EcoButton feature. By pressing this button, you can activate the full flow of water, but if it is not used, water consumption can be reduced up to an impressive 50 percent, without even realizing it. This seamless combination of technology and eco-friendliness makes for an ideal shower experience while contributing to a greener future.
- Introducing the latest groundbreaking innovation from GROHE: Everstream, their cutting-edge water-recycling shower technology. This revolutionary system circulates hygienically treated water to provide the luxurious shower experience users expect while minimizing fresh water consumption and significantly reducing energy use. In fact, compared to traditional showers, Everstream uses as little as a quarter of water and a third of energy, resulting in incredible cost savings of up to 65% per year for a four-person household. In addition, by adopting this eco-friendly solution, households can reduce their CO2 emissions by up to 70%, depending on individual bathing habits. Expected to be launched in 2024, the water recycling shower embodies GROHE’s commitment to sustainability and raises the shower to new heights of environmental consciousness.
Earth Overshoot Day serves as a strong reminder of the critical importance of re-evaluating our lifestyle and consumption. In response to this pressing reality, GROHE remains steadfast in its determination to lead the charge in creating sustainable solutions that transform the use of resources in kitchens and bathrooms. By prioritizing water and energy conservation and driving technological advances, the brand is dedicated to pioneering a path towards #MoveTheDate, which strives to shift the global overshoot date and reduce humanity’s ecological footprint.
