GREEN PRODUCTS FOR THE HOME

A look at some great energy-efficient products for the home

Efficiency Expert

Once upon a time, your product options for finishing your house were limited.

For starters, items such as carpets and paints were made with high volatile organic compounds that made the home smelly; light bulbs were energy hogs and toilets and faucets used an inordinate amount of water. But we’re in a new age, and there are great options that save energy, maintain fresh indoor air and conserve water.

Here are products that fit the bill.


Mold-Resistant Paint

With major light reflecting power, Lime Paint found Unearthed Paints is naturally resistant to fungus and mold growth, making it perfect in kitchens and bathrooms. Plus, it’s made with pure, non-toxic ingredients.

The Philips A19 is an 11-watt LED bulb that performs like a 60-watt incandescent, reducing energy costs and potentially saving up to $134.75 over the life of the bulb. Dimmable down to 10 percent, it will last for about 22.8 years if used an average of three hours a day, seven days a week.


Color Coded

Made from 99 percent recycled glass from televisions and automobile windshields, Surface’s Crayola Recycled Collection consists of 36 solid colors in two finishes and nine blends. The line is approved for both floors and walls and comes in six specially shaped mosaics.

Circle of Light

The Nimba chandelier by Santa & Cole is rooted in traditional forms but assumes a modern aesthetic. It consists of a stainless steel circle and a white plastic inner shade. Order it in two sizes and with xenon or LED bulbs.

Fire Starter

Offering the design of a wood stove, the Rais Gabo is an all-purpose gas stove that acts as a space heater as well. The unit features a totally sealed firebox and does not require an ash pan and or shaker grate. An optional soapstone top helps retain heat.


School House

Part of Sea Gull Lighting’s Academy Collection, this 13-inch diameter ceiling fixture may call to mind junior high science classes. It measures 12 1/2 inches long and uses one GU24 fluorescent bulb. A variety of finishes are available, including brushed nickel and chrome.


Cork It

Habitus cork is created using sustainably harvested cork—the bark of the Mediterranean cork oak tree is merely trimmed, allowing the trees to live up to 200 years. Habitus cork mosaic tile is recycled from Spanish and Portuguese wine stoppers. The hand-cut chips are insulating and antibacterial, with an assortment of organic stains available.
