Original Text

We went through and looked at what items are we putting into customers homes that do have a significant energy draw. So it was at that point we started to see the scope of Energy Star. Energy Star is a partnership at the EPA and Department of Energy in the US to set a standard to develop the most energy efficient product. How can you make this thing work its best but consume the least amount of energy in that process? And that became the conversation with our vendors. If we can have an impact on that customer's energy bill, helping them live more sustainably, that's your story, too. And so we can go from a customer plugging in a new product, being thrilled with their experience, to 100 customers, to 1,000 customers.
