Also, i was very impressed about the impact of 10$ can have on several projects, and i…

Powering my MP3 Player

I always like to sit and relax for at least half of hour before going to sleep.
So, the object i chose to alternatively power is my MP3 Player. I like to listen to some audiobooks or music before going to bed.

- Life for playing: 2 weeks. [half an hour per working day]
Cost per year: 2 EUROs x 26 [52/2 weeks] = 52 EUROs/year

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

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.
