(NAPSM)—You can give more, get more and save more this holiday season, when you present presents that use less energy.
One way to tell is to look for products that earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR label. They help the recipient save money on energy bills and help protect the environment, making them gifts that do a world of good.
There’s a wide range of such things: smart thermostats, laptops, tablets and other electronics, appliances and even lighting. They’ve all been independently certified to meet strict standards for energy efficiency.
Consider this: A typical household spends about $2,000 a year on energy bills. A home outfitted with products that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can save 30%—or about $575 a year—on household energy bills. Over their lifetime these products save about $8,750 on utility bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 77,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
To help you find these fine gifts, there’s the ENERGY STAR Holiday Gift Guide at www.energystar.gov/holiday. It features popular energy-saving products and special deals from manufacturers, retailers and utilities that participate in the ENERGY STAR Program.
