Sure, you consider yourself a true champion of cultivating a greener world. You grow your own garden, take shorter showers, and recycle like no one’s business. But you’re always looking for more ways to up your green energy game and reduce your environmental footprint.  

We feel you. We offer a wide array of products that are great for the environment and green-thumbed go-getters alike. Check out our 5 eco-friendly favorites for this spring.

AR Blue Clean 1900 PSI Electric Pressure Washer 

After a long winter offseason, your outdoor home could use a good cleaning. This pressure washer is built to tackle just about any cleaning job you have. It features a 1.5-horsepower electric motor capable of delivering up to 1,900 PSI of water pressure. That amount of pressure allows you to blast away even the most stubborn stains and grimy buildup. 

You can feel better about your environmental impact, too, because this unique design reduces water use by 80% compared to other models. With not 1, but 2 garden hose adapters, over 50 combined feet of pressure hose and power cords, and Quick Coupler fittings, this electric pressure washer is incredibly easy to use. Go ahead, blast away dirt, mold, and grime from your deck, patio, siding, driveway, vehicles, or outdoor furniture like a boss. 

Snapper XD 82-Volt 21-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower 

Warm weather is returning, and so has the weekly chore of mowing your yard. Instead of hassling with mixing fuel and costly engine tune-ups, why not switch to a battery-powered lawn mower? This 82-volt walk-behind model from Snapper features a 21-inch cutting deck, 3-in-1 mowing selection, push-button start, and a quiet 1,200-watt brushless motor that intuitively increases power to the blades when cutting thicker grass.  

It even folds down for vertical, compact storage. How many gas-engine mowers can do that? Quiet, efficient, and emission free—not only will the environment say thank you, but your neighbors just might as well.  

Melnor Hydrologic Digital 2-Zone Programmable Water Timer and Controller 

Your busy lifestyle means you can’t always give your yard or garden the water it needs to stay looking its best. This digital programmable water timer does the work of remembering to water for you. It features 2 garden hose hookups that can be programmed independently to water 2 separate areas anywhere from once a week to once an hour. A rain-delay setting allows you to conserve water when rain is in the forecast and automatically schedule watering to restart up to 7 days later.   

Large buttons and an easy-to-read LCD display make programming a cinch, so rather than cancel your trip out of town, simply set this digital timer and forget watering altogether. Your plants will be well taken care of. 

Algreen Barcelona 100-Gallon Rain Collection Pot, Terra Cotta 

Money may not grow on trees, but with this rain collection pot, it may just start falling from the sky. Place it beneath a rain gutter and collect up to 100 gallons of rain water for watering the lawn, filling the birdbath, or sprinkling over your growing plants and vegetables.  

It even doubles as a decorative planter to accentuate your outdoor landscape. But the love for the environment doesn’t stop there. This rain barrel’s realistic Terra Cotta aesthetic is crafted out of 100% BPA-free, recycled plastic that’ll stand up against extreme outdoor elements like the real deal.  

Hot Frog 37-Gallon Dual-Chamber Tumbling Composter Bin 

As a firm believer in the “Reuse, Reduce, Recycle” mantra, you understand nothing needs go to waste. That includes your table scraps. With this tumbling composter bin, you can literally turn all your egg shells, vegetable peelings, grass clippings, and other organic material into nutrient-rich compost for your lawn and garden. Compost wherever you need — this composter has wheels for easy transport.  

The 37-gallon, dual-chamber design lets you alternate between 2 separate batches for an uninterrupted supply. Aeration holes, deep tumbler fins, and a heat-absorbing black finish help accelerate the composting process down to as little as 2 weeks, saving you time and money. Even better? This compost tumbler is constructed with recycled plastic, ensuring the composting process is green through and through.
