Stay cool as the temperatures rise and still saving money with the second generation Nest Learning Thermostat. The newly-designed Thermostat is 20% slimmer than the previous model ,but has all the same features as the first model and it can save you up to 20% on your energy bill.
It connects to your WiFi network then programs itself in about a week’s time after installation. You don’t have to worry about turning down the AC before you leave home because Nest automatically detects when you’re gone. A leaf pops up on the display to let you know when you’re saving energy. And the Auto-Tune feature finds ways to decrease your energy uses then adjusts accordingly. You can track information about your energy use over time online.
There’s also an app that helps you control your home’s temperature when you’re away, so you can switch on the AC so your home is cool before you get home. Get the Nest Learning Thermostat at Nest.com then download the app for Android or iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
This week is as good as any to check out the Conscious Collection from retailer H&M. The company is dedicated to sustainability, saving water in denim production, working with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and collecting used clothing in their stores for recycling.
Just last week it introduced its new Conscious Exclusive Collection, featuring recycled textiles and organic cotton and ranging in price from $10 to $300. Added bonus? The store is currently having its mid-season sale, so you can save while stocking up on green goods (and bringing your old ones in to be recycled)
San Francisco-based Amour Vert puts the planet first in its fashion pursuits. The company follows a “waste-free” philosophy, using only low-impact dyes on their organic and sustainable fabrics.
