In With the New!

February 27th, 2011 | Posted by tjones in Green Homes | Green Products

Spring is almost here!

Here in New York City we’re finally beginning to experience temperatures into the upper 50s (F).  Warmer weather is just around the corner!  On my own desk, a pot of narcissus flowers is beginning to bloom, and in the planters around my neighborhood of Crown Heights, daffodils are beginning to poke through the soil.

Of course one of the big springtime events is always Spring Cleaning, a true manifestation of the old adage “out with the old, in with the new.”  So: what can you look for at Green Depot to help you usher in the new spring, and what’s new with Green Depot?


Spring Cleaning Vacuum Sale: Our Spring Cleaning Sale ends March 14, and during this time you can save up to 25% off Electrolux Vacuums.  Green Depot carries a full line of vacuum cleaners for almost any purpose.  Electrolux is one brand that we’re featuring, and the Electrolux Versatility Upright Vacuum is our most fully-featured vacuum.  It has everything you could want in a vacuum cleaner.  The quick-release wand has a buckle which releases it from the main vacuum for cleaning hard-to-reach spaces high and low, like the ceiling and behind couches.  It has a reach of 14 feet.  The vacuum is also powerful: it is bagless and uses cyclonic technology with a 12-amp motor to keep it running at full power.  It is constructed from high impact plastics, ensuring a durable, long life.  In addition, it has a HEPA filtration system to eliminate 99.7% of allergens, allowing for cleaning air in your home after vacuuming.

What’s New?  Green Depot and Ecohaus have Joined Forces: We’ve been working hard to let all of our customers know of a big change around Green Depot: the acquisition of Ecohaus, our West Coast counterparts.  It’s a sensible match.  Both organizations have received numerous laurels for their contributions to a sustainable society and a green economy.  As Sarah Beatty, the CEO of Green Depot notes, “Our core values and passion align completely.” said Sarah Beatty, founder of Green Depot, “By joining forces with Ecohaus, Green Depot is strongly positioned for continued growth throughout America.”  Ecohaus and Green Depot also both have a strong commitment to avoid greenwashing — that is, to offer only green products that pass strict proprietary filters.  Green Depot’s is known as the C.L.E.A.R. filter, and you can read more about it by clicking here.  Ecohaus, likewise, judges all that it carries according to design, durability, price, health and environment.  Read more about the acquisition by reading our press release, here.
