Hello :)

Please excuse the delay in tips over the last week but life has been very busy indeed.

Aaaanyway.... Less excuses and more tips:)

Using less hot water... Yes, this is not hard at all. Set your water heater at 120 degrees to save energy, and wrap it in an insulating blanket if it is more than 5 years old. Buy low-flow

showerheads to save hot water and about 350 pounds of carbon dioxide

yearly. Wash your clothes in warm or cold water to reduce your use… Continue

Hello everyone :)

Okay sorry this second tip has taken a while but here it is. Hopefully it will get more feedback than the last one. I encourage any ideas, questions or discussions that you would like to bring up. Anything is much appreciated :)

Now back to tip number 2!


Wherever practical, replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's). Replacing just one 60-watt incandescent

light bulb with…

Listen..... Just a quote

"I was trying to get people to see that you can't just grow for

ever and hope that the environment will take care of itself.
We could

go over the cliff. You would hope not. You would hope that people

see what needs to be done. It's not rocket science. It's not

difficult. It's not even all that costly. It's actually about

the way you think about the world." -Tim…

Okay fellow agents...... Wasn't too sure about what to do for the first tip because I wanted something new and different and something that would have a big impact. However, I realised that it's normally the small and simple things that make the biggest difference. So here's my first tip:


Save electricity and reduce your carbon footprint by turning off lights when you leave a room, and using only as much light as you need. Also always…

Eco-Tips ....Coming Soon

Hi everyone :]

I had the idea that I could post a short tip on eco-friendly ideas every two or three days that gives an example of a small thing you can do to help decrease your carbon footprint.
These will start tomorrow... I'd appreciate feedback on whether you think it's a good or bad idea or if it's doing anything/is worth it.

Peace and Love.

Jason Aramburu

The Social innovator that has inspired me is Jason Aramburu. His excellent work towards securing a healthy future for the planet that we live in is incredible and hopefully this blog post will help give him the recognition and respect that an amazing man like him deserves.

Jason launched re:char in 2005 to develop low-cost technologies that fight climate change while improving the quality of degraded soils.

re:char’s systems convert agricultural waste into renewable fuel… Continue

think and act big – don’t do anything that can’t reach a million people.

This is an amazing tip. Especially for a person who is hardworking like me. Never try do something of little importance always go big. Never do something that won't matter and always try your best. This is an important lesson in life. Shoot for the stars and you will atleast land on the moon.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
