Bosses aren’t always open to green ideas; I’m sure they hear “environmental changes” and imagine that it’s going to cost them money, when in fact – after an initial expense, perhaps – improved efficiency will actually save them cash in the long run. Introduce a new air conditioning or lighting system and you could find your utility bills halved. And if you’re dealing with an office building that costs thousands of pounds a month to light or heat, savings like More
What has been a very interesting idea and a truly inspiring provocation from Microsoft is the project of green roofs. The idea is proclaimed through a quite inspiring video project that reveals new technology methods that would influence positively the development of sustainable energy, clean environment and ’green lungs'in the big cities.
Even though the project is in a video format, Microsoft says that it is a concept that has actually been quite well considered and it absolutely possible to More
In many countries the government has been motivating its residents to save water in an attempt to reduce the chance of a drought. While in some other countries, ecological organizations have been urging all of us to do the same.
We’ve been told this simply by doing modest acts in the home, it could significantly reduce the stress that’s put on this reservoirs and thus maintaining them at balanced levels. Hence, the following recommendations may be beneficial with regards to More
A good environmental-friendly way of life is growing these days from fad to necessity. More people today are turning into awareness of energy-saving methods that they can utilize within their daily lifestyles. From automobiles to houses, almost everything is going environmentally friendly these days.
An excellent energy-consuming place in our households that may be converted into a good energy-saving spot is the kitchen area.
Reorganize your cooking area regimen with regards to the use of home appliances. Never heat the More
Our natural resources are being depleted rapidly. If it keeps on going at the same rate, and nothing is done to stop it, then every single one of us would have to pay the price. The easiest way to do so is by using eco-friendly resources when constructing buildings.
While the use of alternative energy sources is being explored in diverse situations, real estate is one such sector, where alternative energy sources can be More
Being eco friendly is not a daunting task as many may say. It looks like a huge effort as people try to start from the very top. While it is also important to make major changes in our lifestyle to be eco friendly, it is also important to make sure that we quickly follow the small and easy ones. Like for example reducing the over need in our life. There are many things that we posses either by buying it More
As we all become increasingly aware of protecting the world we live in, one trend has really taken off for many, as well as proving to be a money saving plan. Eco-holidays are gradually becoming the best option for many, through reducing our air miles and remaining very grounded in taking a break in our own country.
While in many circumstances it can cost just as much to stay in our country to spend our holidays as travelling abroad, investing More
If you open your utilities gills at home with some trepidation, then just imagine how the managers of big companies and office buildings feel when theirs arrive with the morning post? After all gas companies and electricity suppliers don’t just target small time home owners. Big businesses are ripe to be plucked too as far as the everyone in the energy industry is concerned.
Similarly, if you are the person responsible for paying the bills in your office or company, More
I think that we are still in the dormant stage, regarding everything that is related to being eco-friendly. Nor do we truly understand the meaning of energy saving. I also think that awareness must start very soon, if we do not want to run out of our precious resources. Even as we speak, our eco-system is being corrupted by industry and human power. This is why I suggest we start doing something for ourselves, for the well-being of our family, of our children, of generations to come. Managing our use of energy seems to be the perfect way to start and using an energy management system, which measures accurately energy consumption, will sure be of great help.
It is not only energy, that we will save in order to keep our Earth in a healthier shape, but it is also our pockets, that will get richer if we decide to use an energy management system. Of course, you might say that you are content with your utility company, which sends out each month your bill, you pay, and that is all. Well, I am still reticent about utility companies measuring exactly and economically the energy we consume. After all, it is our money and our right to start controlling the costs for the energy we consume. With a small investment, in the long run it is definitely a winning situation on our part.
The fact that we can now have companies that can present to us a real time energy consumption chart at any time of the day or night is a very valuable asset. Just imagine what this means to a business owner who operates certain types of machines which certainly eat up a lot of electrical power. By the end of the year, while his costs drop by 20% or 30%, the energy bill for someone not aware of the importance of being energy savvy, will be much higher. This innovation is an Enigin style one and many homes and companies should try to implement it
cheap bicycles are quite good, FREE bicycles are another. Sadly though, the UK isn’t too big on the idea of giving away things for free.
Other countries, however, have a very different approach. Places like Germany are still operating schemes which we got rid of years ago – one of them is the exchanging-bottles-for-money scheme and the other is called “spare muhl” (quite literally translated to mean “spare rubbish”).
The bottle scheme is really something. It does two things really More
