Sustainability Aspects: Moen uses the science of biomimicry, exploring nature-inspired innovation, to create the most "naturally efficient" spray coverage possible. The Envi showerhead and hand shower feature Fibonacci-inspired, spiral-shaped nozzle patterns to provide full-body

“In our research, we learned that consumers are concerned about the environment and are interested in using products which save precious resources… but at the same time, they don’t want to sacrifice a product’s performance in the process,” said Judy Riley, vice president of design, Moen. “The Envi collection makes it possible to use less water while maintaining an excellent shower experience.”

Envi Eco-Performance Showerhead and Hand Shower

Unlike some water-efficient showerheads that simply restrict the water flow, the Envi three-function showerhead and hand shower preserve the powerful stream that consumers are accustomed to from full-flow showerheads. They offer a flow rate of 1.75 gallons per minute (gpm), 30 percent less than the industry standard 2.5 gpm. The modified spray formers actually increase the velocity of the water streams hitting the body, treating users to a full, satisfying spray.

And to create the ideal personal shower experience for consumers, the Envi showerhead and hand shower offer three unique settings: “Relaxing” wide spray, “Invigorating” concentrated spray and “Refreshing” combination spray.

The transitionally styled three-function showerhead and hand shower are available in Chrome, Chrome/Brushed Chrome and LifeShine® Brushed Nickel, to coordinate with bathroom faucets and accessories. The Envi fixed three-function showerhead is also available in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Envi Eco-Performance Rainshower

This new water-efficient rainshower is the first eco-performance rainshower showerhead from Moen and features its innovative Immersion® technology – a self-pressurizing system that increases the force and flow of water delivery. It offers a flow rate of 2.0 gpm, 20 percent less than the industry standard of 2.5 gpm.

Beyond providing pressurized water flow and eco-friendly performance, the Envi rainshower is adjustable, allowing consumers to personalize their shower experience. The showerhead has a convenient lever to adjust the water delivery from the spray nozzles. For a more powerful shower, the flow can be concentrated into 30 nozzles for a revitalizing rinse; whereas for a softer shower, the flow can be expanded to as many as 100 nozzles, delivering a rain-drenching experience.

Also featuring the Fibonacci-inspired, spiral-shaped nozzle patterns, the oversized Envi Eco-Performance Rainshower is available in popular finishes, including Chrome and LifeShine Brushed Nickel, to coordinate with bathroom faucets and accessories.
