There’s no denying it–going green is all the rage these days. But when it comes to making your home an environmentally friendly, energy efficient machine, it can be tough to know where to start. Sure, there’s the little things, like swapping your lightbulbs for CFLs, or recycling, or choosing low- or no-VOC paint. For a more concentrated, room-by-room approach, the Boost Box is here.
The Boost Box is another one of those ingenious, “Why didn’t I think of that?” inventions. Created by Boost Home, the Boost Box is labeled by fixture (shower, toilet) or room in your home (home office, kid’s room, whole bathroom).
Inside the Boost Box are several easy-to-install products that will help make that room or fixture more energy efficient. Inside the Shower Boost Box, for example, is an Aqua Flow-n-Stop Showerhead, The Sand Dollar (times your showers to keep them short), a cold water catcher, tight seal tape, a water and energy home audit and a smart use water book.
In return for the $39 cost of the Shower Boost Box, Boost Home says homeowners will save $500/year and over 15,000 gallons of water after installing the components.
And in the true DIY spirit, Boost Home allows you to create a build-your-own box, filled with the components that you select to fit your home’s energy- and water-saving needs.
