Kiplinger's Eco-Friendly Shopping Guide
From Kiplinger.com this morning comes a handy look at good green buys and where to find them. From home appliances to home decorating, they have tips for everyone.
For example, are you in the market for a new toilet?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new WaterSense program has begun certifying high-efficiency toilets that use only 1.3 gallons of water or less per flush. Replace a toilet made between 1980 and 1994 and you could save as much as $90 a year. We recommend the Kohler Cimarron EcoSmart toilet ($338 and up) or the Toto Aquia ($395). Both are dual-flush models that let you choose a lower or higher water flow as needed.
