5 Green Products -cute to corny

June 1, 2010

What time is it? This clock ($ 39.95) made from reclaimed and 100% recycled detergent bottles is available in various citrus colors and will tell you time time.
Attics can get as hot as 160 degrees in the summer and small vents are often unable to keep them cool enough. An unvented attic can develop mold and mildew. This SunRise 1250 Solar-Powered Attic Fan ($599) comes with a thermostat that turns the fan on at 80 degrees and off at 65 degrees and moves 1250 cubic feet per minute of air in full sunlight.
This brings back memories. These Recycled Vinyl Record Bowls ($26.99) are make from real vinyl records for use as snack bowls or decorative pieces.
With every increasing electronics around our computer or entertainment system we are all guilty of leaving equipment on – I know I do. This Smart Strip LCG3 ($30.97) power strip senses when your computer is off and turns off all associated equipment plugged into it. It also some outlets that are always on (so for example you don’t loose time settings on certain components).


And the corniest of them all –
Do you sometimes take longer than needed showers and feel guilty about wasting water? I do. This STOP In Time hour glass shower timer ($2.99) from Water Conservation reminds you when you when your five minutes are up!

    The shower timer… I usually take a bath- so I wonder gallon-wise how that stacks up? And the solar fan may be a good thing, I wonder if I could install it myself (or if my very handy brother could)… My attic gets super hot!

      It’s a luxury to take a bath instead of a shower.. even if I had the time I would be thinking of too many things to do to enjoy it. They said that the solar attic fan was for an 1800 sf attic. I seems like a really good idea to be able to ventilate the attic by solar means when it gets hot and sunny outside.

    The clock is so cute! It looks like something out of the Museum of Modern Art gift shop. No one would ever guess it’s made of detergent bottles. Genius!
