Re: commercial dishwashers


Have you contacted the Green Seal Organization or the Tellus Institute?  I
am not at my desk right now, so I do not have contact information.  I was
just scanning my favorite magazine, E Magazine, and came across an article
about whether it is more environmentally friendly to hand-wash dishes or use
a dishwasher?  How timely.  Call me to discuss and or e-mail your fax number
and I will get the short article to you.  There was a contact listed:
American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, 1001 Connecticut Ave,
N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036 -- 202 429-8873

There was also a Maytag ad at the end of the magazine touting energy and
water efficient appliances.  Not sure if they do the commercial sector.

Good luck,

Vince Perelli
