With Hawaii’s goal of achieving 100 percent clean energy by 2045, have you considered if you are doing your part to create a greener island? Take your first steps to a greener life, starting with your home appliances. Switching to more energy-efficient appliances will not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also shrink your energy bills. And with the latest advancements integrated, you’re sure to invest in products that’ll only better your home in the long run.

When shopping for your next addition, consider ENERGY STAR® labels, which are awarded to appliances that exceed the national standard in efficiency, a simple way for consumers to note an eco-focused product. What’s more, every year, the Environmental Protection Agency introduces ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient distinctions, given to products that are delivering cutting-edge energy efficiency and technological innovation.
