Eco-Tip #2 - CHANGE YOUR LIGHTBULBS

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!

CHANGING YOUR LIGHTBULBS

Wherever practical, replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's). Replacing just one 60-watt incandescent
light bulb with a CFL will save you $30 over the life of the bulb. CFLs
also last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs, use two-thirds less
energy, and give off 70 percent less heat.

If every familyin the U.S. replaced just one regular light bulb with a CFL, it would eliminate over 40 billion pounds of greenhouse ga****. This is the same as taking 7.5 million cars off the road.



Keep this in mind.

Stay safe, stay smiling and stay green :)

Great tip. In Kenya the sole energy generating company has lauched a campaign to replace users light bulbs for FREE with a view to reducing the cost of power which is off the charts. +1 Sustainability

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

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
