#1 Grab one (or a two-pack) of these timed shower managers to help you and your household cut down on water use.

Best of all; helps train you (or your family) into a better behavior.

#2 We could all use a WAKA WAKA. Rooftop solar systems are amazing, but it’s just not affordable enough yet for a lot of us. The WAKA WAKA is a much smaller alternative to reduce our
energy from electronics use, and relieve us of our gadget-guilt.
Solar charge your favorite electronics daily with this portable mini solar charger
It produces light as well, making it ideal for camping or an emergency safety item for
storm-prone or blackout areas. I myself could have used one in Hurricane Sandy!
The best part about this product is that for everyone purchased, the company donates one of these bad boys to a family in the developing world, allowing them a greater chance at a better life.
