Your Daily Greens

Clay walls are naturally mold resistant and “breathable” which helps
circulate the air and remove allergens. Left over clay can be discarded
directly on the ground with absolutely no ill effects on the Earth.

Denim insulation is flame retardant, mold resistant, and has a higher
insulation value per inch than fiberglass. It has no formaldehyde and
is great sound proofing.

Concrete counters and floors don’t harbor mold or other allergens.

If every house in Los Angeles had solar panels installed it could<
easily power the whole state of California.

HVAC stands for Heating – Ventilating – Air Conditioning.

CFL’s can save homeowners $72.00 over the life of the bulb.

Recycled glass countertops (or ‘bottlestone’), is durable and made
of 80% post consumer recycled glass.

Buying floor models reduces carbon footprints by eliminating
construction and shipping.

Low E glass increases energy efficiency of dual pane windows by
about 50% and helps with sound proofing.

All natural linoleum does not contain toxic chemicals.

    Here’s the problem I have with CFL’s. You cannot just “throw” them away with the trash.

    http://www.gelighting.com/na/home_lighting/ask_us/faq_compact.htm#disposal

    They have to be disposed of properly because they do contain mercury. There was a case with in the past year or so where a woman was fined $5,000 by the epa because she broke a CFL in her house and did not clean it up properly.

    That bulb that saved her $72 ended up costing her much, much more!

    I’m waiting for the day that LED bulbs are wide spread for room sized applications (almost all of the nightlights in our house are using LED bulbs…)

    When I read your blog post on the “going green” tips, that really reminds me on how many things that we can actually do for our environment. Small little things can really add up a lot to make a huge difference. And I especially agree on the one about installing solar panel at every home.

    Hi mcangeli … The story you are referencing about the woman being fined thousands actually morphed from a story concerning a woman who allegedly spent thousands of dollars cleaning up from a cfl bulb breaking. Totally agree with you about LEDs but cfls are the only way to go for now.

    Hi Green Blog … Yep! I agree. Every time someone does a greening event, in their home or at the office, the world gets a little better.

    Hi Linda,

    I found this to be amazing, “If every house in Los Angeles had solar panels installed it could
    easily power the whole state of California.” Can you imagine? Then if other cities and states followed suit, we could really reduce our power needs. Do you think we’ll see a decrease in the cost of solar panels or other alternative ways to capture the energy of the sun>

    I hope this is not too off topic, but…

    I have over 1000 photos that I would like bloggers to use free of charge (including a lot of nature type photos).

    Hi Barbara … Yes! A fellow blogger in California has a great program in getting folks started, especially the poor. Overall, the prices will come down when solar film and other products are available.

    Hi Jordan … I will try it out and let you know! 🙂
