Green Tea


This nifty electric tea kettle saves water and energy by boiling only as much water as you really need for that cup of Earl Grey – no more, no less. Just fill the dual-chamber kettle, and then choose to boil between 1 and 8 cups. Tea kettles may not seem like a top culprit when it comes to energy waste, but the UK’s Department of Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) says that if people would only stop boiling more water than they need, the electricity saved could “run practically all the street lighting in the U.K.” No surprise that a bunch of tea-sipping Brits came up with this eco-vention, but any Patriots still worked up over the Boston Tea Party are at liberty to use their Eco Kettle for cocoa and soups instead.
