This past June NYC-based ABC Home launched a new line of eco-friendly home products, equipment and accessories called Eco-Intelligence. Each product explains its energy and cost saving potential and is coded according to the five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. The collection is still small right now, and includes such items as LED light bulbs, organic home cleaning products, and air and water purifiers, but ABC Home tells us it will eventually grow to include solar energy, home audits and retro-fits. We've highlighted a few of their offerings below...
Organic Home Care, $12-$18
Organic home care is especially designed to protect your body and our planet. Made using the safest, natural technologies, it is organic, biodegradable, non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-flammable.
Air Purifiers, $345-$999
New York City in particular has above average levels of hazardous air pollutants such as acrolein, diesel emissions, benzene, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, nickel, chromium and ozone. Our collection presents a careful edit of air purifiers tailored specifically for the NYC environment and to a variety of respiratory ailments from simple allergens to mold.
LED Light Bulbs, $35-$65
LED bulbs last 1000,000 hours over ten years. They are about ten times more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, and more than twice as efficient as compact fluorescents. Bulbs do not heat up or emit mercury. Our selection of LED bulbs offers two shades and presents a range for varying applications in your home. Perfect for accent lighting, and a conscious fit with our chandelier collection
Ovopur and other Water Purifiers, $595-$650
Our carefully edited of a selection of water purifiers filter these harmful toxins, as well as other contaminants such as chlorine, vocs, viruses, and ecoli, and replenish water with healthy minerals and antioxidants.
Stainless Steel Water Bottle, $18-$35
Plastic bottles are also toxic for the environment: 1.3 billion plastic water bottles are dumped into NYC landfills annually, and it takes more than 1,000 years for one plastic bottle to decompose. Stainless steel water bottles are a healthy, environmentally friendly, cost effective alternative to bottled water. Stain and rust resistant, easy to clean and durable.
Right now these products are only available in store or you can call to order. They should be available for sale online in the fall.
