    Hi Tom,

    I wanted to invite you to check out Indow Windows, an environmental product that has the lovely side effect of dramatically reducing the noise coming in through your windows. We have a funny video here:

    We won Sustainable Industries Top 10 Green Building Products of the Year award in 2011 and an Edison Award in 2012. The product installs non-destructively, so you avoid the cost and waste of window replacement.

    Warm regards,

    CEO, Founder
    Indow Windows
