You won’t find low flow water filters at Buy Green just yet. However, you will find the Chilipepper hot water pump.

A great product to individually promote, Buy Green sells it for about $180 and pays 10% commissions on sales.

Buy Green hosts an “Energy Savings” section of their website, stocked with a handful of energy efficient products.

Using less than $2 of electricity per year, the Chilipepper pump will save hundreds per year in water and energy costs. Costing around $180, this is a good buy that will pay a nice commission (10%).
