TopTenUSA: The most energy efficient products

TopTen USA is a new non-profit organization that makes it easy for consumers to find the most energy efficient products. World Wildlife Fund is a partner in TopTen USA and blogs about the new website:

Help Save Species by Saving Energy

Climate change is one of the gravest threats facing the wildlife and ecosystems WWF is fighting to protect. In order to slow climate change, greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced. Reducing energy use is a fundamental part of curbing emissions since much of it comes from burning fossil fuels, the primary source of emissions in the US - accounting for 86 percent of total CO2 emissions in 2008.

While climate changes on a global scale, individuals can make a difference through their decisions in the market place. For this reason, WWF is a proud partner of TopTen USA - a new non-profit organization that provides a clear, user-friendly Web site for consumers to easily find the most energy-efficient products.

Today TopTen USA announced the launch of its free, Web-based rankings of the 10 most
energy-efficient products in a wide range of categories
: refrigerators, freezers, televisions, computers, vehicles, dishwashers, clothes washers, and monitors. The TopTen
USA site lists the 10 best choices for each product category, along with pricing, specifications, local and online retail options, and personalized rebate information.
