Are you too lazy to go around unplugging appliances when you’re done with them? Do you still consider yourself environmentally aware? Then maybe it’s time to look into purchasing the Harriet Carter Outlet Switch. The device— not to be confused with a power strip— is a current cutter that allows you to turn off electricity flow while appliances are still plugged in.

Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!

If you want to make life even easier, plug a power strip into the switch for the ability to cut electricity flow from multiple devices at once.

Most of the electronics we use every day—TV’s, DVD players, cell phone chargers—leech power even when they’re off, so Harriet Carter’s device could save some serious energy. And while it isn’t the only outlet switch on the market, its $5 price tag may make it the cheapest.
