The Blue Bidet is an install-it-yourself add-on for a standard toilet. At about $70 US, it’s an affordable alternate to most other retrofits and bidet conversion kits.

Though it defies intuition, bidets save a lot of water and other natural resources because they replace toilet paper and 1.5 pounds of wood, 37 gallons of water and 1.3 KWh of electricity are required just to produce one roll of toilet paper. The Blue Bidet is also more hygienic as it increases the level of cleanliness. The therapeutic effect of water on damaged skin, rashes or hemorrhoids is an added benefit.
