Waterless Co.—and its no-water urinal systems in particular—is no stranger to being acknowledged for sustainability efforts. Earlier this year the company earned one of the highest scores—4.5 out of a possible 5—in the newEnvironmental Leader Technology Reviews program.

The Environmental Leader Technology Reviews program recognizes excellence in products and services that provide companies with sustainable and environmental benefits. Scores are determined by a panel of independent judges from organizations as diverse as PepsiCo, Staples, the University of California–Berkeley, Owens Corning, and Yahoo! Inc.

“[It] is quite an honor for us to be included in the National Building Museum’s Green School exhibition,” says Niki Bradley, Marketing Manager for Waterless Co. “The goals of this exhibit are to show what schools around the country can do to be Greener, more sustainable, and healthier places to work and learn.”

Bradley adds that an additional focus of the exhibit is that greater sustainability can prove to be a cost savings as well.

It is estimated that more than 60 million Americans spend their days working in or attending K–12 schools. “It is crucial to all of us that these structures be healthy built environments and use natural resources such as water as efficiently as possible,” says Bradley.

The exhibition, which opened earlier this year, will remain open through the end of 2013. The National Building Museum is located at 401 F St. NW, in Washington D.C.
