Linda has asked me to once again do my best to help keep you informed on the latest green technologies. Unfortunately, it appears a return trip to the hospital is happening today. Complications, unforeseen. Linda isn’t sure how long she’ll be gone and away from her blogging. Let’s hope things go smoothly and they return soon – whole and healthy!
Green Roof Technology
While you await the return of your green living expert, I came across this video demonstrating how efficient and effective green roofs can be, particularly for urban living:
Green Roofs Website
The above video was found at this resource portal for green roofs. You’ll also discover more videos and more green technology tips by visiting their website. When you get to the site, check out their blog. Here’s an excerpt from their most recent post:
Roof material is important when harvesting rainwater and many of the guides discuss this. For example, wood, copper and treated asphalt are only good for irrigation purposes. Slate, concrete, metal coated or painted, and most vinyl/rubberized are excellent for all uses. Asphalt shingles are acceptable as long as they are not treated with a chemical.
The full post can be found here. It goes into much greater detail; information we all will find valuable!
Again, please send your thoughts and well wishes Linda’s way and specifically to her “partner in crime” for a speedy recovery. Linda has consistently provided immensely detailed posts and information over the past three years. In fact, she is considered to be a leading green authority (and much better blogger about green living then I could ever hope to be!).
