Green Plumbing in Long Beach Makes a Father Proud...and Hopeful

Find green business solutions
Green plumbing? What's that? Green plumbing is essential to reduce water use as well as make our water systems in homes, offices and industry energy efficient.

For Timothy Collier, owner of The Green Plumber and a third-generation plumbing contractor, it was becoming a father that cemented his determination to plumb 'green.' "While looking at my hopes for my son's future, it became clear that changes needed to occur all around us," said Collier.

"It is my belief that we must start making small shifts in the way we live and perform business, to make our children's future better. The more time I spend searching for methods to make those shifts, the more resources I find. My first training class with GreenPlumbers provided the wealth of pertinent information I was looking for."

The Green Plumber, Long Beach, CA, has been installing water-efficient toilets, tankless hot water heaters, graywater systems and solar hot water for years now, but is glad to see conservation becoming part of the mainstream.

"I'm excited to partner with GreenPlumbers at a time when water conservation is at the forefront of news in my city, county and state," he said. "With the assistance of GreenPlumbers, my company is up to date, and ready to assist my clients with their water conservation needs. With training, our plumbers will be able to provide the best green plumbing options available, saving our clients’ resources, energy and money."

Collier looks forward to helping his customers achieve their goals of water conservation through training his plumbers in green technology. "Increasing the green literacy of staff leads to the best options for our clients. Anything less is unfair to clients, staff and company."

The GreenPlumbers® training and accreditation program is open to all recognized plumbers and contractors. The program is partnered with the EPA’s WaterSense program, the Alliance for Water Efficiency, the California Center for Sustainable Energy, the California Urban Water Conservation Council, and many more industry leaders in its mission of bringing environmental training to plumbers.
