Rob Greenfield on How to Live More Sustainably!

Affordable Green Power, DIY Solar Panels

You want power, and you want it now! Watts and Watts of power, kilowatts per hour of power. But the power company keeps hiking up your rates, making your power bill more oppressive than a mid-west summer day just before a thunderstorm releases enough power to light up a city.

Green Energy: Electricity From Wind

Oooh, I want one so bad!! A windmill, or wind turbine, that is. And not just any wind turbine, I want a vertical axis wind turbine. I want to generate green energy, or electricity, from wind.

Why Do We Need Solar Energy?

People charged with governance of providing energy nowadays still do not see the benefit of solar energy over other conventional methods of supplying power. Solar energy is a renewable energy source fuelled by the radiating sunlight from the Sun.

Gift Buying

As I green my life my approach to buying gifts has changed. It’s not just about greening my life, it’s also about reducing the collection of “stuff” and the clutter in people’s lives.

Environmentally Friendly Toilet Paper

While this is not a topic of conversation for polite company, it’s an important conversation to have, and one I’m intrigued to see generates a lot of emotion in people. The issues I see people get most excited about are softness and ply. My issues are scent (surprised by that?), pilling, durability (read strength and absorbency), and recycled content.

Efficient Green Home Design

Efficient was the focus of the house My Bigger Half and I designed and had built seven years ago. It’s a green home in most ways. But, as efficient as we made it, we didn’t think of going with movable walls.

Loft Insulation: Saving Money and Energy

Everyone wants to save money. However, these savings could not only help the budget, but also the environment. Loft insulation is an easy fix to a wasteful problem that is happening right above ones head.

Easy Ways On How To Save Water At Home

Did you know that only 2.5 percent of our planet’s water is fresh water? That means that is the type of water that we use to drink, take a bath, cook our meals, and wash our clothes. And with all our bad habits we are making it all go to waste. Don’t you think it’s about time that we do our fair share and save water at home?

Energy Efficient Vs Regular Light Bulbs

Have you ever wondered what the real difference between energy efficient and regular light bulbs are? The choice of efficient home lighting systems is a sure way to reduce your domestic energy consumption. The average household commits over 10% of energy consumption to lighting. Advances in bulb design have given potential power savings of 50-75% before better controls and conservation techniques are considered. The incandescent bulb was very cheap and gave instant light when turned on and too many of us had a certain pleasing look to it.

Solar Lights – The Advantages For Summer Garden Design

Solar lights provide a beautiful enhancement to any existing landscape lighting design. There are a number of different shapes and sizes of solar lights which can provide the type of aesthetic that you are looking for. If you entertain guests outdoors of an evening, solar lights are a visually pleasing way of keeping your guests safe and adding a mood to the occasion. Solar lights also are a cost effective way of illuminating and showcasing your favored parts of the garden.

Solar Energy For Your Home

Ready to jump on the solar power bandwagon, but feeling a little intimidated? After all, you’ve heard all about the wonders of solar power for homes, but it all seems a little intimidating. Where do you start?

Living in Respect With Nature’s Rhythms

Nature is connected by cycles that keep the earth in balance. These cycles helps us to stay grounded. When we honor these cycles it makes it easier for our bodies, mind and environment to stay balanced.
