5 Eco-Friendly Products That Save Water and Energy

April 12, 2021

Sustainable living is all in the details. The household products we use every day, like our lights and sinks, can either help or hinder our efforts to conserve water and energy.  

To help get on track, here are five eco-friendly products that reduce your household’s environmental impact:  

1. The Most Cost-Effective: EcoSmart Lightbulbs

The EcoSmart 60-Watt LED Lightbulb uses 85 percent less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and can save $93 in energy costs in its lifetime. Available in a variety of colors and shapes, these lightbulbs can save energy in every room of the house.

 

2. The Hidden Gem: LED Mount Ceiling Lights

Enjoy stylish lighting features while saving energy with the Home Decorators Collection Toberon LED Semi Flush Mount Ceiling Lights. This Energy Star-certified ceiling mount light uses LED lights behind a parchment-like glass, creating a luminous effect without using lightbulbs.

3. The Best Investment: Eco-Friendly Fridge

The KitchenAid Side by Side Stainless Steel Refrigerator is estimated to have a yearly energy cost of only $82. It features the Preserva Food Care System, a cooling system that ensures freshness and minimizes odors, while utilizing LED lighting rather than incandescent bulbs.

4. The Industry Innovator: Delta Strike Faucets

The Delta Strike Faucet uses at least 20 percent less water than the standard industry faucet, and meets the WaterSense standards set by the EPA.  

5. The Biggest Saver: Glacier Bay High Efficiency Toilet

The Glacier Bay High Efficiency Single Flush All-in-One Toilet is another WaterSense-approved product that makes each flush more efficient. Because toilets account for the greatest use of water in a typical household, this sustainable alternative is a money-saver that just keeps saving.
