“With so many innovative conservation programs in action, we felt it was necessary to create an online resource that recognizes those making an impact in preserving energy for future generations,” said Kristi Mailloux, Chief Marketing Officer of AM Conservation Group, Inc. “The online news forum will highlight states, municipalities, businesses and individuals that go above and beyond with conservation practices, programs and policies. We hope to inspire and encourage others to follow their lead.”
The Dish Squeegee™ makes clearing off dishware and countertops a whole lot easier, faster and more efficient. The US EPA acknowledges running water continuously to pre-rinse dishes prior to putting them in the washer consumes extra water and the energy used to heat hot water. Additionally, Consumer Reports estimates that up to 6500 gallons of water are wasted per year by pre-rinsing dishes. Now the mess can be squeegeed away without wasting water or energy. Clearing dishes prior to dishwasher use with the Dish Squeegee™ saves water, energy, time and money! Made of 100% soft, pliable, and non-stick silicone, the Dish Squeegee™ is dishwasher safe and will not scratch fine cookware. Take the Dish Squeegee™ challenge: Turn the faucet off and use your Dish Squeegee™ instead!.
An independent panel of judges selected The Dish Squeegee™ as the finalist based on superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business, with educational support from the International Housewares Association and sponsorship by the New York International Gift Fair®.
