Nebia Spa Shower 2.0
The Nebia Spa Shower 2.0 shower head uses 70% less water than a traditional shower head, which saves approximately 20,000 gallons of water per year when used by the average household. It also uses both warm steam and spray, as well as atomized water, and hydrates your skin more efficiently. Since using less water results in a lower water bill, it ends up paying for itself in just a couple of years. Purchase at www.nebia.com for $499.

NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop
This cooktop uses induction technology to decrease the amount of energy required to cook foods traditionally cooked on an electric stove. It does so by using an internal copper coil, which creates a magnetic field inside of the pots and pans used. The field makes the pans vibrate, which generates heat, in turn heating up the food. This makes the cooking process significantly more efficient, and requires less overall energy. The NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop can be purchased at www.nuwavecooktop.com for $119.97.
