Furthermore, most of them are made out of toxic and other harmful elements. Therefore, there’s a dire need to change this toxic nature of the home appliances.

6 – Home appliances made using recycled materials
1. Recycled milk bottle lamp
The milk bottles are one of the major items used in every home these days and the number is increasing rapidly. The used bottles were actually considered to be garbage and hence were thrown into the garbage which ultimately created land pollution and became a major cause for the landfills. So the recycling of these bottles was required and this particular way is really awesome. You can use these milk bottles and can easily transform them into lights. All you have to do is to cut down the base and a bit of the top part of the bottle and fix a bulb inside. Then you can make arrays of such lights and can plug those using wires. These bottles look gorgeous and ultimately add to the beauty of the house.
2. Lamp blob
Now this is something cool made out of plastics. The plastics are considered to be one of the major sources of pollution as they are non-biodegradable and become a major source of landfills. There is practically no way of getting rid of them as they are so toxic that if you burn them they become a source of air pollution and if you leave them as it is on land they tend to make the landfills. So the only way out is going for recycling and this particular way is simply superb. The plastics can be easily utilized and can be made in the form of bunches that can form a lamp blob. These lamp blobs are really gorgeous and look attractive. They can be made into different colors which add a lot to the beauty of the house and the surrounding.

6. Ultrasilencer Green
Electrolux launched the Ultrasilencer Green, the most energy-efficient cleaner on the market made of recycled materials. Electrolux Ultrasilencer Green uses 33% less energy and is made with 55% recycled plastic. The use of 55% recycled plastics reduces the energy consumed in the manufacturing of those plastic components by 90%. Even more important, a new, high-efficiency motor reduces the appliance’s energy consumption by 33% compared to a standard 2.000W vacuum cleaner. All that adds up to saving tons of carbon emissions that would have been otherwise released in to the air and plenty of energy that can be used for better purposes.
According to a 2007 survey conducted by Electrolux, 70% of North American and European consumers want their appliances to be environmentally friendly. In addition, 76% compare the energy efficiency ratings of different brands, and of those, 93% said that the ratings strongly influenced their purchasing decision or was one of the main criteria. This is a trend that is more impressive than the product itself. This is not to diminish the product, but it is just the fact that such a trend is good news for all concerned.
Electrolux has done a fine job with this super sucker that is the world’s greenest in what it does. This by no means indicates that the product is less than usual when it comes to style and aesthetics. It looks great, is easy to carry around and comfortable to use. While it may not yet be completely green, one can bet that such a high-performance, super green vacuum cleaner is not too far away. Till then, keep those brooms stored some where!
