So here is one product you can buy to try and help lower your energy costs. The EcoPod is made from recycled tire rubber.
EcoPods absorb shock and vibration for washers and dryers, something that (who knew?) wastes a lot of energy and money. Ecopods says you just prop the appliances up on the pads, and they'll be clean, green, washing machines, that make zero noise, break less frequently, and are energy efficient.
I can't wait to buy these and try them out, always trying to find ways to save on electricity.
