I think that the Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum Model 16N5 (Dark Aloeminium Green) is the most Eco-Friendly Vacuum.
The main reason I think it is most Eco-Friendly is because it doesn't use disposable bags. My last vacuum had those paper/plastic hybrid bags that were expensive and NOT able to be recycled. I was throwing those old bags away every couple of weeks because they would smell.
Second, The pre-motor Foam Filter is Washable, so nothing to throw away or replace.
Third, this vacuum is well built, sturdy and will last a long time. And having a Five year warranty from Bissell, I won't be replacing it and throwing away an old vacuum to add to the landfill.
Fourth, this vacuum has a Lifetime Belt, so NO more throwing away rubber belts every couple of months that are made from petroleum products!
