London, UK, 19th October 2009: PURE, the world’s leading radio maker is pleased to announce during Energy Saving Week that it has received four further Energy Saving Recommended (ESR) accreditations for its radios.
The latest products to receive endorsement from the Energy Saving Trust are the new Chronos CD Series II; Chronos iDock Series II; Elan II and Siesta iDock. Move; EVOKE-1S; Siesta; Chronos II; TEMPUS-1S; ONE Mini; ONE Classic; ONE Elite; EVOKE Mio and EVOKE-2S have already received ESR accreditations. This now means that the majority of PURE’s range has been accredited by the Energy Saving Trust.
Products endorsed by the scheme have to satisfy an Independent Endorsement Panel of experts, and have to meet strict energy efficiency criteria which means they are not only better for the environment but are also cheaper to run.
Tamara Mauro, spokesperson for the Energy Saving Trust, said: “”The Energy Saving Recommended logo is a widely recognised benchmark for excellence in energy efficiency and highlights the most energy efficient products in the marketplace. We urge other manufacturers to follow PURE’s lead and get their products accredited in order to give consumers more energy efficient options.””
All fourteen radios endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust are part of EcoPlus™, a statement of PURE’s ethical philosophy and ongoing commitment to looking after the environment. All PURE products are designed to minimise their environmental impact and manufactured in ethically approved and audited facilities. They have reduced power consumption in operation and standby, use recycled packaging materials, have the smallest possible packaging and components selected to minimise environmental impact.
All PURE radios endorsed by ESR will feature a special Energy Saving Recommended logo on their packaging and promotional material.
PURE radios also conform to the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) standard. PURE supports the WEEE directive to reduce electrical waste.
