bathfitterRepresentative: Ka’Mili Grayson

Sells: Bath Fitter makes every effort to make bathroom remodeling as environmentally friendly as possible.

  • Installing a new bathtub liner or tub surround over the top of the old one eliminates the need to rip out old fixtures. This lightens the load for already overburdened landfills and reduces the amount of debris that needs disposal
  • Acrylic bathtubs are good insulators, keeping water hotter longer and saving energy
  • Acrylic bathtub and shower liner materials last a lifetime, which means no need to replace them and less waste in landfills
  • We use the latest technology to minimize our electricity usage
  • Over 75 percent of our shipping is free from the costly use of cardboard, pallets and shrink-wrap
  • At our plants, we recycle all the water that we use during the manufacturing process
  • BATH FITTER recycles all scrap plastic materials
  • BATH FITTER uses non-toxic installation materials and methods
