smartstuff EnviroTint offers the perfect and quick solution to keep your home naturally cool in summer with new multi-purpose window films. Window film is a treatment that aims to stop the heat in summer, increase privacy and reduce glare while not impeding views or diminishing the natural light that brightens interiors. Advanced technologies mean window films, formerly known as window tint, now offer greater variety of shades, colours and performance levels; the best products are guaranteed to survive the harsh Australian climate with scratch resistant coatings for protection and metallic layers for colour stability. EnviroTint can help you choose the right film by considering the angle of the sun in each window of your home in both summer and winter, your living and lifestyle attitudes to natural light, and the overall appearance you want to achieve. For more information call 07 5476 8852 or visit www.envirotint.com.au. master Flexibility, versatility and water savings are the new 'must haves' in pull-out spray mixer taps. Tapware specialist Tradelink reports increased demand from homeowners and renovators for highly efficient taps that use only six litres of water a minute at maximum flow. Two new models from Raymor -- the Torino Multifunction and the Torino Gooseneck -- are receiving interest because of the water conservation rating they deliver. The Torino Multifunction has an angled design that features an adjustable spray pattern -- two different spray formations at the touch of a button. The Gooseneck design has the traditional curved shape with an extendable spray mixer cleverly concealed in the end of the spout. Both models offer exceptional flexibility and range of movement, with spray heads able to be extended up to a metre, and come with a full five-star WELS rating.

According to Sony, this VAIO dramatically reduces the overall carbon footprint of your personal computing needs with nearly 80 per cent of all plastic parts made from recycled materials. It achieves a 10 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions during production and when in use, power consumption is reduced by the Intel® AtomTM processor and VAIO display with LED backlight, which contributes to its five-star energy rating. Styled in a chic white finish, the VAIO W Series Eco Edition has a mint green palm rest and distinctive patterned touch pad. The unit is supplied in an environmentally friendly carry bag manufactured using recycled PET bottles, and replacing the individual cardboard carton, to reduce the packaging material from factory to store to home.
