The ability to aggregate carbon footprint results and track progress provides companies with a powerful tool to inspire participation and publicize net gains
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) September 22, 2008
Help employees and clients conserve energy and water, save on utility bills, and have an immediate, positive impact on the environment. New from Eco Hatchery, the Eco Starter Kit enables a typical U.S. household to cut utility bills by $260 per year and greenhouse gas emissions by 2.5 tons. The emission reduction is equivalent to replacing a mid-size sedan with a Prius hybrid or eliminating 5,500 pounds of garbage from landfills.
"The toolkit yields measurable results that truly make a difference for companies, employees and the community year after year," said president of Eco Hatchery Adam Borut, emphasizing that the unique combination of products and online tools sets the Eco Hatchery Starter Kit apart from other "green" gifts that have little or no quantifiable impact.
Users can calculate their carbon footprint online and track improvement as they implement the kit's energy-saving products. Best of all, they can join forces with colleagues, friends and neighbors to work toward a common goal.
"The ability to aggregate carbon footprint results and track progress provides companies with a powerful tool to inspire participation and publicize net gains," said Borut. "The timing couldn't be better, as the presidential election, $4 per gallon gasoline and ever stranger weather patterns have raised consumer awareness of the need to take action, not only to save the environment, but to save cash."
Inside the Eco Starter Kit is a simple step-by-step handbook describing the rationale, process and time for each of the energy-saving activities. Some of the eco tools and activities included are:
- Energy Monitor for identifying appliance hogs
- Reusable Filtered-Water Bottle
- Home Tap Water Quality Test & Conservation Tools
- Eco Lighting Replacement Tool and premium Compact Fluorescent Bulb
- Home Insulation Products
- A-Z Recycling Resources Directory
- …..and more!
