What are cookies? They're small text files that are saved by a website onto each of its visitors' computers. That same website can then read and modify them at will.
Why use them? They allow a website to recognize you. Not personally, usually, but, for example, your username, preferences, and/or shopping basket contents.
Why ask for consent? A European directive requires websites now ask visitors for consent before setting cookies, prompted in part by concerns about the online tracking of individuals and the use of spyware. The majority of cookies are well-intentioned, but the directive intends to help visitors make an informed choice regarding them.
What cookies will The Water Label use? If you choose to set any preferences, we will create a persistent cookie to remember them. Should you need to sign in to a section of the website, we will create a temporary cookie to remember you've signed in. A third party, statcounter.com, will create a persistent cookie to aid our collection of visitor statistics – that is, to identify if a page load is coming from a new visitor or a returning visitor (and nothing more than that).
What if I don't consent? That's okay. If this is your first visit, we haven't set any cookies yet. If you don't want us to set any cookies whatsoever, check your browser's Help section now for instructions on blocking them. If it's only third-party cookies you don't want, you can set that as a preference here: Do not set third-party cookies.

Aims & Objectives

Today, manufacturers of water using bathroom products ensure that aesthetics match practical benefits, which apart from hygiene also include water and energy saving - two issues that are growing massively in social importance.

The aim of the Scheme is to help you easily identify water saving products that when installed and used correctly use less water than other products available on the market.

Clever use of smart technology in stunning designs means we can do our bit to stamp out waste without compromising on style. Manufacturers are working hard to ensure they meet Government's recommendations for saving water, whilst still delivering the sexy looking, performance packed bathing experience we want.

The Scheme provides a credible, recognisable label and website helping you become more aware of water issues and the water saving products available on the market today.

"Water is one of the most precious resources on Earth. In times of population growth, climate change and urbanisation, water has turned into a valuable commodity in need of protection. Under the EU 2020 strategy, resource efficiency has been introduced as a flagship initiative, signalling the need to save resources to promote a more sustainable growth."

"We must strive to save water. But let us think about creating sensible incentives, rather than imposing bans and constraints. Voluntary water efficiency labels can be a first and important step in this direction!" says Richard Seeber, Founder and President of the EP Water Group
