Every year, SnapPower adds another innovation to the humble coverplate. Products of the past dressed up outlets with USB chargers, nightlights, and childproof sliding outlet covers, but the new SwitchLight has expanded their repertoire up the wall. It installs easily over switches that control overhead lights, perfect for lighting the way to the bathroom or nursery in the dark. The SwitchLight uses efficient LED bulbs that last 25 years, uses 10 cents of electricity per year, and has four settings—high, low, automatic, and off—to suit your needs. Say goodbye to outlet-hogging nightlights!

Model: SnapPower SwitchLight Single in White | $17.00 MSRP
Furniture Made with the Environment in Mind

Did you know that furniture choices can have a positive impact for the environment and your own indoor air quality? Most beds, dressers, desks, etc., are built using inferior wood products treated with harmful chemicals that off-gas indefinitely. For more eco-friendly options, consider solid wood furniture from Epoch Design®, a Washington-based, family-owned company that uses responsibly sourced lumber, low-VOC glues, and lead-free finishes. They craft pieces to heirloom quality to last generations, so they won't end up in the landfill. Investing in more than cheap flat-pack furniture is good for your health, your wallet, and our world!
