Bosch Appliances Helps Homeowners Go Green and Save Green This Earth Day

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - As the only US manufacturer with an entire product line of ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances, Bosch offers some of the most energy and water efficient appliances on the market. Earth Day is the perfect time to take advantage of the potential money, water and energy savings with special rebates from Bosch.

"Earth Day is a great time to for Americans to incorporate more sustainable practices into their households, like upgrading to efficient home appliances," said John Farley, senior brand and environmental marketing manager, Bosch home appliances. "With special rebates from Bosch and our Kitchen Package Promotion, Bosch makes it easier and even more affordable for homeowners to achieve the kitchen of their dreams, furnished with the most efficient appliances on the market."

Older appliances have a significant impact on the environment. For example, dishwashers made before 1994 can use more than 8 gallons of water per cycle. In comparison, the Bosch 800 Plus -- the most efficient dishwasher in the U.S. -- uses as little as 2 gallons of water per cycle, 70 percent less than the average dishwasher today.

Bosch is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its products during each phase of their life cycle from manufacturing to everyday use, and subsequent recycling and disposal. Bosch's state-of-the-art factories, including its appliance park in New Bern, NC, has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 certification, a worldwide certification that requires a company to meet strict international standards that minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by production. Bosch relies on reusable and recyclable materials and also recycles its wood, cardboard, and paper, requiring its preferred suppliers to adhere to similar environmental policies.

Through German engineering and advanced technology Bosch continues to exceed ENERGY STAR qualifications and continues to provide the latest in exceptional appliances. For information about Bosch, visit, like Bosch at or connect on Twitter @BoschAppliances.
