What else to look for:

 
 
   

The Energy Star Rating

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, energy-efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill without sacrificing features, style or comfort. New household products that have earned the government's Energy Star rating meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy. Wherever available we recommend items that have earned an Energy Star rating.

In 2004 alone, Americans using Energy Star equipment saved enough energy to power 24 million homes and avoid climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions equal to those generated by 20 million cars – all while saving $10 billion.

 
 
   

Time Savers

Sometimes, the steps you take to protect your world can also save you a lot of time. For example, it takes the same amount of time to install an energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) as an energy-wasting incandescent – but the CFL lasts ten times as long. Instead of buying several incandescent bulbs, you can install one CFL and forget about it for five, six, even seven years.

Look for the clock next to any eco tip that's also a real time-saver.

 
 
   

Money Savers

Some eco products cost more money up front, but will save you money in the long run. Other eco activities – like keeping your car engine tuned up to use less gas – save you money right from the start.

Look for the dollar sign next to any eco idea that will save you money.
