envirovac by eureka


Ever so gradually household appliances are getting greener as consumers weigh the environmental impact and energy consumption of new purchases.  Even an energy efficient, everyday appliance like a vacuum cleaner can help you significantly reduce your home’s unseemly carbon footprint.

This Eureka Envirovac has been designed to consume about 33% less electricity than comparable upright vacuums without sacrificing power or efficiency.  Eureka packages the Envirovac in 100% recycled packaging and its reusable, washable HEPA filter reduces the amount of waste you dump in your local landfill. Eureka is giving away 10 Envirovacs on their website and donating to the Carbon Fund to offset shipping emissions.

rechargeable cordless blender

colemanblender_1.jpgThis one’s for binge drinking campers in need of an off-grid cocktail, and/or health-fanatics who like to hike into the back country, pick their own blueberries, elderberries or the like and whip-up a refreshing, all natural, backwoods libation.

Coleman makes this beast capable (manufacturer’s hype) of mixing 20-30 pitchers on one charge.  It’s also said to be capable of chopping ice and other ingredients in a more than satisfactory manner.
