Photobucket

I know that most of us are trying to do all that we can to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. From my own experience, I also know that it is not always the easiest or affordable thing to do! That’s why I was so happy to hear about a new company called Practecol. They make sustainability products that not only reduce your carbon footprint, but they are also affordable and will even save you money! So, let’s talk about how Practecol products will save you money!

Most homeowners don’t know that many electrical items in their home actually use energy even when they are not in use. This is often referred to as stand-by power, phantom power or vampire power. This costs YOU money and it affects our environment.

The following list shows how much energy costs can be for these common household devices when turned off:

* Computers: $77
* Televisions: $40
* Game Systems: $60
* Stereos: $25

This is where Practecol comes in. They offer Smart Surge Protectors and Motion-Activated Light Sockets to Remote Controls, and more. All designed to easily stop stand-by power thereby reducing your energy consumption and costs! Another cool product is the Energy Monitoring Consumption Meter. It tells you how much your household electronics are costing you. All you do is plug the meter into a 3-prong wall outlet, plug in your electronic device, and it tells you how much power the device uses.

Another caveat: Practecol’s product packaging is recyclable, recycled or biodegradable, and the paper used in their packages is made of 80% post-consumer waste and printed with renewable, soy-based inks. All plastic packaging is made from pre-consumer recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable!

Practecol was kind enough to send us the entire line of products to try out and we are looking forward to not only saving money, but doing our part in saving the planet. What impresses me the most about these products are how easy they are to use and install! Plus, they are very affordable and readily available at most Target stores!
