Case Study: Embracing Sustainable Living on Bowen Island

Just off the coast of Vancouver, British Columbia lies Bowen Island. Our latest project, The Island Home stands as a beacon of sustainable living amidst the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. With a commitment to the environment and resource conservation, the homeowners of this residential home embarked on a journey to integrate innovative solutions into their 3,137 sq. ft. single-family home. At the heart of their endeavour lies the installation of the RainStick Shower, a testament to their dedication to sustainability and water conservation.

Project Details

Project Name: Island Home
Location: Bowen Island, British Columbia
Project Scale: 3,137 sq. ft. single-family home
Product Used: RainStick Shower, Matte Black Finish
Product Applications: Master Bathroom Shower Installation

Project Impact

Bowen Island, known for its lush landscapes and abundant rainfall, faces water availability challenges: while the region receives a substantial amount of rainfall annually (1.5-1.8 meters), much of it occurs during the winter months and quickly runs off to the sea. Consequently, the island struggles with water shortages during the dry summer season, posing a significant challenge for residents.

NB: The RainStick product support and engineering team are currently working with the Isla Mundo Foundation team collect and analyse data - to be released mid-late in 2024.

Benefit to Client

In response to this challenge, the Island Home opted to implement the RainStick Shower as a sustainable solution to water conservation. With each RainStick Shower capable of saving 11,400 gallons of water per home annually, the homeowners saw an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on their water usage. By utilizing only half a gallon of water per minute, the RainStick Shower drastically reduces water consumption compared to standard showers, which typically use 1.8 to 2.5 gallons per minute. This not only helps alleviate water shortages on Bowen Island but also contributes to the homeowners' efforts to lead a more environmentally conscious lifestyle.

The installation of the RainStick Shower at Island Home signifies a shift towards sustainable living practices, where innovation meets environmental responsibility. As the Island Home continues to set an example for eco-conscious living, the integration of solutions like the RainStick Shower serves as a testament to their commitment to preserving the natural beauty of Bowen Island for generations to come.
