LA Thursday Giveaway: Eureka envirovac

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Retail Price:$72.22

Description: The average American household vacuums about one hour per week (our neat freak tendencies double that figure), using a fair share of power to operate the typical 12 amp motor. The Eureka envirovac was designed to reduce power consumption to just 960 watts of energy an hour compared to the 1440 watts of energy used per hour by the standard upright vacuum with a more efficient 8-amp motor. The envirovac also comes packaged in 100% recycled and unbleached cardboard and features a reusable, washable HEPA filter to reduce waste caused by disposable filters. Strangely the envirovac isn’t available in a shade of green, but instead comes in a soothing blue finish. Go figure.
