Alan Greene, M.D., is a beloved practicing pediatrician, leading authority, and spokesperson for the green baby movement. Named "the Children's Health Hero of the Internet" by Intel, Dr. Greene teaches at Stanford University School of Medicine.
As Past President of The Organic Center, founding partner of the Collaborative on Health and the Environment and an Advisory Board member of Healthy Child Healthy World, Dr. Greene has an impressively green resume – and a wonderfully down-to-earth perspective. That could be because he has four children himself.
"In my job as a pediatrician at Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University School of Medicine over the last ten years, I've seen how clinical experience, science, research, and technology have increased the choices that doctors and parents can make," says Dr. Greene. "But there’s also an important new set of choices parents can make that can have a beneficial impact on the environment."
Bosch dishwashers are all Energy Star compliant. There are a variety of models and measurements to meet your needs. The Senstronic Wash is available in all models, using an advanced sensor to determine if a secondary, fresh water fill is necessary. This saves money and energy by up to 20 percent. These dishwashers also have the NSF certification, which means that at least nine out of every twelve wash cycles dishes are 99.99 percent bacteria free after washing. Another feature is the optimizer, which reduces cycle duration by up to 30 percent, saving an additional 5 percent of energy consumption. http://www.boschappliances.com.
