Want to green your home? Consider the amount of toilet paper consumed in the average home. Americans use 34 million rolls of toilet paper every day. That equals 221 thousand trees, 68 million pounds of green house gases, and 161 kilowatt hours of electricity. If this doesn't sit well with you, you're not alone and it's another reason to take a look at the Swash® Bidet Toilet Seats. This green product can reduce the amount of toilet paper used by 75 to 100 percent.
Swash® Bidet Seats are also great for those who suffer from hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, incontinence, and Crohn’s disease because they reduce or eliminate the need for abrasive toilet paper. Relief is provided by its touch free cleansing and drying.

LumaWarm® offers the luxury and comfort of a heated seat with an illuminating LED nightlight. You can select your personal temperature settings from four temperature options. The elegant LED light can be controlled by the on/off button and illuminates the toilet seat with a blue glow. Add the quiet, slow closing seat hinge and LumaWarm® will quickly become a must-have for every bathroom.
There is no compromise when it comes to the air you breathe. The Environmental Protection Agency places Indoor Air Quality as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Many homeowners are not aware that their indoor air quality can be 100 times worse than the air outside. Your best defense against indoor air pollutants is the O2 Air Purifier.
An O2 Air Purifier is your watchdog against the toxic onslaught of particles that can affect your home’s indoor air quality. The O2 Air Purifer comprehensively removes toxic microparticulates, biologics, and even VOC gases to help make your home indoor air quality the best that it can be.
It used patented BioHygenic™ science that has evolved from purifying techniques used in the most toxic industrial and medical environments. It traps all three types of pollutants regardless of size in an inescapable water filtration system and then destroys them in an expedited process similar to what happens in nature.
The best thing about an O2 Air Purifer is that it cleans air continuously without the need for replacing filters, constant cleaning, or any loss of efficiency.
Whether you want to upgrade your toilet seat or would like to to increase your indoor air quality, these products will make your home more luxurious and can make you and your family happier and healthier.
