“In terms of the environment, 2007 will go down in history as the year that the average consumer moved from awareness to action,” said Will Kelty, president of GetWithGreen.com. “The desire to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle is becoming the norm and GetWithGreen.com’s Top 10 list is designed to make it as easy as possible to achieve this goal by connecting homeowners with some of the best ‘green’ products for their homes.”
