Plantable confetti is pretty, heart-shaped and grows into flowers

by Jennifer @ Green Wedding Slices

I’ve never totally understood the confetti deal. You throw it up in the air which is fun for a few seconds. Then this confetti goes all over the place making a huge mess at your wedding reception (or wherever), on top of creating a bunch of paper waste all over the place. That said, if you do want […]

Where to Get Good Coffee in Granada, Nicaragua

by Abigail Davidson @ Ecocult

A decade ago, you would have had a difficult time finding high quality coffee in Nicaragua. Coffee farmers could make so much more money by exporting it that none of the good stuff stayed in the country. In recent years, however, there has been a growing community of people who want to keep some of their amazing coffee to enjoy themselves -- and I don't blame them one bit! Here are a few places where you can get your hands on some of the good stuff.

Easy New Year Resolutions

by @ Green Home Library

You probably know that most New Year’s resolutions never make it to spring. However, if it is an easy fix that you can incorporate into your busy life, it usually lasts longer. When it comes to the planet, there is no better way to practice some simple adjustments for a green impact no matter how insignificant you may think it might seem.

These easy Eco-friendly New Year’s resolutions give some practical options to simply do your part without a lot of fuss. You can keep it at this level or use it to propel you deeper onto a green path that continues to support a clean environment for you as well as future generations.

Bottled Water Reversal

There is no reason to purchase, let alone produce, plastic bottled water anymore. By now most people are educated on the ravages this product is having on our oceans, land and even air quality. Not to mention the approximately twenty-million barrels of oil per year used to make these bottles. Yet, the greed machine continues produce bottled water taking advantage of an assumed uneducated public.

It is time to stand up to poor manufacturing; poisoning your planet and your body. Stopping your  consumption of bottled water and switching to a recycled steel, plastic, aluminum, glass or wood water bottle is a simple step you can take. Simply fill with clean water from an at-home filtration system or tap (many cities and states are proud of a clean, safe municipal water record) and take it wherever you go.

If carrying around a personal water bottle is out of the question, at least use them at home rather than fill your fridge with evil plastic waste. When on the road, look for more friendly packaging such as boxed water options or compostable bottles.

Paperless Towels

Another perverse depletion of natural resources is lumber used for the manufacturing of paper towels. Over fifteen billion pounds of these one-wipe wastes are found in landfills daily. Instead, using cotton cloths in place of paper towels saves trees and gets the job done at the same time.

Some argue that the water used to launder cotton cloths is a greater Eco-threat than felled trees which are replanted. However, the technological Eco-friendly upgrades to appliances such as washers and driers save more water and electricity than ever before. Add in non-toxic cleaning supplies and your cotton cloth replacements easily remedy the environmental atrocities of paper towel production.

Fix Phantom Power and Old Bulbs

Make this year your Eco-experiment by eliminating phantom power. Phantom power is the constant electrical drain on your home appliances even when they are shut off. The National Resource Defense Council put out this list in 2015 to give the homeowner an idea of the accumulated financial waste due to phantom power:

Annual cost of “phantom power”

  • Water recirculation pump - $93
  • Desktop computer - $49
  • TV - $38
  • Cable set-top box - $30
  • Audio receiver/stereo - $22
  • Printer - $11
  • Furnace - $8
  • Coffee maker - $6
  • Dryer - $4
  • GFCI outlets - $1 each

You can easily save money and energy by implementing simple home improvement fixes such as:

  • Installing smart power strips
  • Unplugging appliances until needed
  • Installing a digital power timer
  • Adjusting appliance settings such as shutting off power hogging “quick start” options

In addition, swapping out incandescent lightbulbs and replacing with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and/or light emitting diodes (LEDs) can also save money as well as reduce significant energy waste. The US Department of Energy estimates that, “green lightbulbs” can save upwards of 65%-80% energy usage as compared to incandescent bulbs.

 

Try these Eco-friendly New Year’s resolutions to start of your year with an Eco-bang. They are simple ways to save money and the planet all at once without you exerting yourself all that much. Then, when you realize how much extra energy you have you can join an activist association and travel the world fighting the good fight, or just go to work and be happy you're doing your part.

Importance of Green Baby Bedding

by @ Green Home Library

You have been living in progressive times with technological, medical and industrial advances happening practically daily. Yet, with all this forward movement, when it comes to pollution, health, and safety, some free-enterprise ventures remain off course.

Serious health risks are now connected to the toxins from many plastic products which, studies are confirming, have continuously leached into our lives creating accumulative effects linked to disease. Now, plastic toxin exposure is showing to be a threat to our children which is why the importance of green baby bedding is an essential protective first step.

Off-Gassing Risks

When home improvement materials such as paints and plastics are manufactured, the risk of dangerous fumes subtly emitting from some of these products should be concerning. These off-gassed fumes are volatile organic compounds or VOC’s such as PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), phthalates and phthalate alternatives. Breathing VOC’s could cause the body to embed toxic residue in muscles and other tissue. Due to an underdeveloped immune system and fragile state, new and existing data show that infants are the most vulnerable groups for contracting these off-gassed toxic emissions.

In a study by researchers at the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin, published in Environmental Science & Technology (12/16/14), the abstract states,

“In infant sleep micro-environments, an increase in the temperature of the mattress can cause a significant increase in emission of phthalates from the mattress cover and make the concentration in the infant's breathing zone about four times higher than that in the bulk room air, resulting in potentially high exposure.”

Phthalates and phthalate alternatives are linked to causing disorders of hormonal regulation which may include health conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Early puberty
  • Infertility
  • ADHD
  • Cancer

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) interviewed Dr. Brandon E. Boor, an assistant professor of civil engineering at Purdue University who commented that,

“We need innovative research to come up with manufacturing practices and ingredients that put children’s health first and ensure that we don’t end up with a new toxic chemical.There is now a real movement on the state and federal level to reduce Americans' exposure to flame retardants in furniture, foam and other items, because research shows that these chemicals accumulate in the bodies of people, increase the risk of cancer and can harm hormones”

Off-the-Grid

Mainstream consumerism is continuously bombarded with slick advertising and many manipulated words such as “natural” and “safe.” In reality, most people have no idea that many products they trustingly purchase are ticking time bombs of off-gassing exposure.

When it comes to merchandise for baby and kids, thinking twice about utilizing “off-the-grid” manufacturers, especially for crib mattresses and bedding, could be life saving.

Off-the-grid products come from unconventional companies that offer a variety of alternative options beyond the possible dangers associated with mainstream choices. These might include materials like:

  • Hemp
  • Bamboo
  • Organic cotton
  • All-natural green tea
  • Organic Merino wool

Many green crib mattresses are also made in the USA and meet the same fire safety standards as synthetic choices. Be sure and ask questions when purchasing a green crib mattress such as:

  • Is it organic?
  • Has flame retardant been added to this material?
  • Is this material a good deterrent for mites, bedbugs, etc.?
  • Are there any levels or citations that confirm the authenticity and safety of this mattress?

 

Baby furniture, bedding and blankets do not need to be a danger zone for your child. The importance of green baby bedding is imperative and can only start with you. It offers peace mind that your child is starting out on the right foot before they can even walk.

Green Business Security

by @ Green Home Library

When it comes to security, there are several alternative green options that are just as efficient as conventional ones which currently support pollution and waste.

Green Hacker Security

These days it is essential to hire an online security company to protect your small business computer system. The problem is that many of the energy sources from these huge servers are a significant drain on natural resources, threatening water conservation, clean air and global warming.

When shopping for or switching to an online security company ask if they support any alternative energy platforms to run their business. Whether solar or wind, hydro or hydrogen fuel, there are no more excuses why non-alternative would be a better choice.

Lock it Smart

Smart locks are taking over the security industry, reducing material waste and extra energy use. You may not think of keys as a problem but like any raw material they are a small part of excessive steel production.

By using smart locks you do not need a key or even a card to enter and exit, instead access is granted via computer or smart phone, speeding up production and increasing revenue. No more lost keys, broken doors or long gas guzzling drives to open a lock or handoff a key.

Work in Motion

Installing motion detectors can significantly cut back on wasted light energy. Rather than a light that burns for hours straight, a motion detector only illuminates when the security beam is breached. This saves energy as well as elongates the life of your light bulb. Many motion detectors are solar powered storing enough energy during the day to operate throughout the night.

Get an Umbrella

Most insurance companies offer full coverage which includes vehicles, property and damage. By bundling all of these under the same plan your financial security becomes a financial and environmental win. This is because it requires less office supplies, power and so many other intricacies which would most likely double if you had separate plans. If a security team is needed, ask if your insurance company provides and covers this part of your small business as well.

Utilize AI and VR

The future is practically on top of us as artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) permeate beyond gaming and into the medical, transportation and military sectors as well. When it comes to environmental benefits, these two technologies are poised to be the ruling factor on how you run your life, business and what carbon footprint you emit.

AI is currently taking over the home improvement industry with the smart home application by controlling temperature, lighting, and appliance usage. This is now being applied to small businesses and is showing a significant impact. Whether kitchen adjustments, bathroom water utilization or office space energy control, AI has taken the guesswork out of energy use, automatically saving resources and money. When it comes to small business security, AI offers real time audio alerts regarding intrusion, both physical or online and brings more user ease for smart lock applications as well.

VR is offering an opportunity for the small business and/or consumer user to enter worlds that are both engaging and educational showing front and center how global warming, pollution and lack of social consciousness is affecting our planet. This can be a consumer draw as it is capable of “wowing” customers while at the same time keeping them in your space.

VR is also being used to reduce small business ordering waste by allowing “virtual stock” to determine space allocation as well as reordering prompts. On the security platform, VR brings night vision as well as bird’s eye and around corner viewing. Add in drones to the mix and VR combined with AI can cover security for small businesses that include zoo layouts, large warehouses or farm spaces.

Loud and Clear

Any green addition to your small business is also an opportunity to alert your consumers or clients to how you are on-board with sustainable solutions. It has already been studied how a large subset that is rapidly turning mainstream embraces and supports green businesses, especially small businesses. By utilizing and advertising your green security system you are adding to your potential future business while helping save our planet at the same time.

 

Green business security is changing for the better. It offers environmental benefits as well as bottom line increase, consumer draw and peace of mind.

3 Small Business Green Savings

by @ Green Home Library

If you're a small business owner you know what it takes to keep afloat. You don’t have the luxury of Big Corp money pouring in to fund frivolous decisions, your business needs every penny in the right place, at the right time, all the time. This is why going green can sometimes be a challenge for small businesses. It requires switching a variety of choices that have been set in place to keep your company running at an even pace.

Changing a workable format is a risky venture but when it comes to going green, the numbers speak for themselves. These small business green savings show how you can integrate green products and green practices that just may, eventually, increase your bottom line.

B2B Reach Out

Business to business communication can be essential as a green money saving tip for small businesses. By reaching out to adjoining companies there is the possibility of working together for a variety of incentives.

European marketing company Imfuna reports that,

“By making environmental friendliness a priority of your business partnerships, you not only encourage other companies to reduce their carbon footprint, but also to reduce their own expenditures; and when companies with which you partner save money, those cost savings are passed along to you.”

Talk to your counterparts about:

  • Combine supplies - Combining green purchases, like industrial cleaning supplies in bulk, can make starting off together financially more feasible.
  • Patriotism - Joining with your suppliers, vendors and B2B neighbors to purchase and show USA made support can be a huge win, particularly when it comes to solar installations and wind power.
  • Beautification - When businesses band together in the name of the environment they must walk the walk, and it will show. Whether outdoor shopping or indoor building office space, the surroundings of your small business should have basic upkeep that you probably pay for, however, there are additional options.

You can work with other small businesses to install green extras such as:

  • Composting bins - Can be sold to local farms for profit.
  • LED public lighting - Saves everyone money on electric bills.
  • Solar powered garbage compactors - Saves on excess garbage costs and fossils fuel use.

Scale Down

Obtaining larger space may be a misstep when it comes to keeping your small business green. Lowering your carbon footprint means less consumption, yet startups and small thriving ventures  are often pressured to expand for more money and stature.

It may seem anti-business but keeping your company at a manageable level that embraces green practices, such as energy efficient lighting, wind or solar power, recycling and more, is a green money saving move. With less overhead you use less energy, create less waste and, if managed well, can increase profits on a low carbon footprint.

Happy Employees

Whether working at a zoo, an office, or any small business, employees that see how you run your company are apt to follow your lead. Moreover, if that lead is a positive message, like Eco-friendly practices, money saving benefits could very well follow.

CNBC reported that,

“A study by UCLA and the University of Paris -Dauphine found that employees at Eco-friendly companies are 16 percent more productive than average.

Professor Magali Delmas, an environmental economist at UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and the UCLA Anderson School of Management commented on the study,

“Adopting green practices isn't just good for the environment, It's good for your employees and it's good for your bottom line. Employees in such green firms are more motivated, receive more training, and benefit from better interpersonal relationships. The employees at green companies are therefore more productive than employees in more conventional firms.”

 

As more small businesses, consumers and Big Corp. embrace the green movement, cost is finally coming around to a more conventional playing field. These small business green ideas show how jumping on the Eco-friendly band wagon can be good on all fronts.

Green Moving and Storage Options

by @ Green Home Library

Whether you are moving to another location, cleaning out your home, or setting up a storage option there are a variety of ways to keep it Eco-friendly. Before you dive into things like cardboard, plastic, and tape, give some thought to the many ways you can approach your task with as low a carbon footprint as you can.

Boxing Day

Re-using boxes for storage and moving means keeping them out of the landfill and one less bunch of new boxes purchased.

According to a 2014 report posted by B2B Community, corrugated cardboard was considered as having the best track record of any packing material. At the time of this report, it was rated that in 1993 55% of corrugated cardboard was recycled and in 2011 the number rose to 91%.

Recycling one ton of cardboard saves 9 cubic yards of landfill space, 700 gallons of water, and 46 gallons of water. Even though you won’t be using one ton of cardboard, you will be part of all the people that jump on board and eventually do hit these numbers.

Reusable boxes should be clean, as thick as possible and undamaged. They can be found at places like:

  • Supermarkets
  • Liquor stores
  • Warehouses
  • Bookstores
  • Starbucks
  • Craigslist free stuff section

Collect the News

Tons of newspapers are discarded everyday. If you need to pack and store items, newspaper is one of the best materials. It is readily available, protective when bunched in bulk (particularly for kitchen and dining items), and best of all it’s free when a day old.

Collect piles of newspaper and use generously to avoid wasteful and Eco-unfriendly plastic, styrofoam, or other packing material.

Pick a Green Team

For a moving company or storage space, do your green research. Many of these companies may sound good on the surface but you should find out what kind of green track record they have.

Some questions to ask include:

  • Do you use recycled materials?
  • Are your moving trucks Eco-friendly? (ie: electric, biodiesel, hybrid)
  • Does your storage space include green additions such as energy efficient lighting, heating, air-conditioning or insulation?
  • Do you use any green power options like wind, hydro or solar sourcing?
  • Do you use photocells or motion sensors? (devices to detect movement or natural light and turn on interior lights accordingly)

Rent It All

Before you run around sifting through supermarket dumpsters for usable moving boxes or spill out the Legos to fill another plastic bin, some companies are offering a greener way.

If you don’t mind spending the extra money you may be able to utilize organizations that will rent you an entire moving or storage kit. This is everything from boxes, tape and markers to wardrobe holders, rolling closets and customized packing units. You can even go a step further and pay for a team to do all the packing while you delegate.

Although more expensive, renting these services reduces waste, limits fossil fuel use and decreases excess personal energy.

 

Nowadays there are many companies in this industry offering green choices that are worth the effort. No longer does it need to be a time of stress and waste when the stress is hard enough to deal with. Try these green moving and storage options so your project is a clean, Eco-friendly experience.

About Plastic Dog Bowls

by @ Earth Doggy: Latest News

There is a reason why you won't find any plastic dog bowls EarthDoggy. Plastic dog bowls are dangerous and can sseverely harm your dog's health. Unlike ceramic, stoneware or steel dog bowls, plastic dog bows harbor bacteria in the cracks and crevices that are dangerous to your dog's health. Plastics emit dangerous Phthalates, and, according to the Environmental Working Group. "plastics contain chemicals, called “plasticizers,”, a group of industrial chemicals used to make plastics like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) more flexible or resilient and also as solvents. Phthalates are nearly ubiquitous in modern society, found in, among other things, toys, food packaging, hoses, raincoats, shower curtains, vinyl flooring, wall coverings, lubricants, adhesives, detergents, nail polish, hair spray and shampoo." And these chemicals can leach from plastic into your dog's food, potentially exposing them to dangerous chemicals with harmful side affects. Earth Doggy recommends steel or ceramic dog bowls. Stoneware type dog bowls are also acceptable. However, make sure none of these types of dog bowls contain lead. All dog bowls sold on Earth Doggy are lead free.

Hitting the Road: Eco-Friendly Winter Car Tips

by @ Green Home Library

Conventional methods of dealing with harsh, winter season driving include using a variety of toxic chemicals. Try these eco-friendly winter car tips that do less harm to people and planet.

Better Antifreeze

Antifreeze is a byproduct of winter that many do not realize can be replaced with a greener alternative.

Old antifreeze (ethylene glycol) is very dangerous, capable of injuring pets and children due to its bright color and sweet taste. It should be completely removed from your radiator and recycled.

Replace with propylene glycol antifreeze, a far less toxic alternative that is even found in some foods as well as health and beauty aids.

Note: Switching antifreeze should be discussed beforehand with a mechanic that understands the workings of your particular vehicle.

Fight the Fog

Naturally stop your windows from fogging due to extreme inside/outside temperature changes by using a saltwater and vinegar solution (1:3). Dip in a sponge and rub on the outside of your windows before driving to safely fight the fog.

For other natural window cleaning choices look for N-13 ammonia-free products as well as natural streak-free window glass cleaners.

Snow Away

A simple way to clear the snow and ice from around your car is by shoveling and then sprinkling rock salt or urea-based de-icers throughout the area.

However, it is estimated that,

“The heavy use of road salts can lead to damage to vegetation, to organisms in soil, to birds, and to other wildlife. Almost all chloride ions from road salts eventually find their way into waterways, whether by direct run-off into surface water or by moving through the soil and groundwater.” (Green Venture)

If you must use road salt, look for those containing calcium magnesium acetate (CMA) or potassium acetate (KAc) which are less toxic. Otherwise, try these snow melting alternatives:

Brick Sand - Brick sand, which can be purchased at your local building supply store, is coarser, and more granular enabling it to work faster than regular sand. Plus, it offers excellent traction and has a low albedo which means it can absorb sunlight and melt snow faster.

Ash - Wood burned ash from a fireplace can also be used to melt snow. It too provides traction and has a low albedo.

Cat Litter - You can use new or old (strained) cat litter to melt snow as well. This material offers high traction. Keep a bag in your trunk for getting out of stuck-in-the-snow situations.

Electric Mat - The Ice-Away Snow Melt Mat works great for cars parked in a driveway surrounded by snow. Simply set it up before snowfall and turn it on when the white begins. It’s durable, inexpensive to operate and is designed to be left out in harsh weather all season long.

Go Pro Wash

Many people think that washing their own car is a better alternative to professional car washes. In reality, it is more expensive, wasteful and toxic to wash your own car. A car wash uses about 40 gallons of water per car while filtering and recycling it as well (5 minutes of garden hose use releases about 63 gallons). They also remove salt and debris from the undercarriage which can reduce corrosion. This winter (and beyond) use a car wash instead.

This Eco-friendly winter car advice is a small example of the few efforts you can make to create a clean, green, less toxic season.

Why It’s Actually Awesome That Hawaii Is So Ridiculously Expensive

by Alden Wicker @ Ecocult

At first, I was frustrated by the high price of everything on Hawaii. In fact, I almost felt dumb for visiting. Basic resort rooms at $300 a night. Paying an extra $350 on top of the $700 plane tickets for one Economy Comfort seat (and sitting separately from him in a cheaper seat) just so my new 6’5″ husband could walk when he got off the 12-hour flight. The $175 grocery bill for a week of breakfast and bagged lunches. Ouch! Why visit Hawaii when you could get the same tropical vibes for a third of the price in Mexico or Thailand? But midway through our trip, something switched. We found pristine, empty beaches in Hana, ate locally caught seafood and locally grown chocolate and coffee, and hiked for seven hours in Haleakala’s crater without seeing more than ten other people. And it struck me: Hawaii is an example of accidental environmentalism. You see, there is a term called “externalities.” When it comes to the environment and the economy, it means all the stuff that is damaged as a side effect of economic development: pollution, overfishing, deforestation, asthma, climate change…. every ecosystem damage you can think of. The very basic […]

10 Green Ways to Get Through Winter’s Days

by @ Green Home Library

Winter is here in full swing and sometimes it can take its toll both physically and financially. It can also become so uncomfortable for some that remaining green is difficult while just trying to forge through inclement weather, stay warm, or cope with the lack of sunlight. Obviously the Northeast and Midwest do get the brunt of it, however, even if you are in a warm weather belt winter changes are relative to what you are used to. Below are 10 green ways to get through winter’s days which may hopefully remind you to stay the course as well as possibly give you some new info.

Layer Up

Before you run to the heat dial, crank it up and deal with the high utility bill later, put on some layers. So many people get used to the convenience of traipsing around in light, comfortable clothing they forget that a few layers will save money, save energy and keep you healthy as blood circulation stays warm and flowing.

Do Not Retire the Bike

Most folks store away their bicycle until better weather emerges. Why? Save gas all year round and winterize your ride with fatter tires, slip-free pedals and tight, warm, riding duds.

Be Nice When You De-Ice

Don’t pollute the environment with toxic chemical de-icing salts. Use calcium magnesium acetate or calcium chloride instead.

Have Non-Electric Fun

Sitting home and using more energy than you need can have you lethargic and gaining weight in no time. Get out and sled, ski, snowshoe, anything physical.

Re-Light

Winter is the best time to change all your incandescent light bulbs and replace them with bright, vapor-free LED bulbs. Bright white or cool blue can help the dark doldrums that come with winter.

Feel the Seal

Any simple sealing of drafty spots will go a long way in keeping expensive energy in.

Keep it Cold

Some estimate that upwards of 90% of washing machine energy is used to heat the water for a hot wash. Plus, in the winter months it takes more energy due to frigid water temperature.

Essential Aroma

Being indoors during the winter means smelling more odors. Don’t succumb to land filler, chemically treated, electricity depleting room deodorizers– get some essential oils. Sprinkle such scents as lavender, jasmine, lemon, peppermint and more on old porous wood (driftwood works great) or even dab on cotton and place in a tea strainer. Your room air will naturally blossom.

Get Board

After your outdoor activities, get out the board games and stay off the electronics even longer.

Empty the Fridge

If a bunch of glass and plastic containers are eating up your refrigerator space, use the cool outdoors to do the work.

Why make the winter an energy guzzling world of boring hibernation. Keep the television to a minimum and connect through everyday green practices as well as coming up with some of your own. There is always an opportunity to embrace our planet.

This Winter Commit to Your Optimal Health

by @ Green Home Library

With a nationwide freeze in play, now is a great time to start an activity program that will tighten and tone so when the snow starts to melt, you are ready to hit-the-ground-running. From yoga, to sports, or cycling there are a variety of activities you can utilize to propel your mind and body toward a more optimal health status. Find your inner passion activity that inspires you to get moving, and commit to your optimal health.

A Stressless Slide

Whether it's a New Year’s resolution or an, “I’m gonna do it this time” attitude, you just may be putting too much stress on yourself. This is why high numbers of good intentions quickly fall short particularly when it comes to diet and exercise. This winter, take the time to commit to something you really want to do for all the right reasons. If you are joining a gym just to lose weight you could be putting more pressure up front than you should. Instead, approach an activity commitment with as much passion as you can add to it. For instance, if you love playing softball then join or form a team and spend your time at the gym revolving around softball training. Maybe you need more peace and solitude in your life so why not choose a yoga class to get you there. Try and keep trying until the class or activity is a fit for you. There is no need to follow the pack just because it's easy, instead, think outside the box and find an activity that makes you look forward to it, not dread it in your gut simply to shave off a few pounds.

Keeping it Green

As you embark on finding your inner passion activity, take some time to consider the tools you will choose to get you there and keep you going. Whatever activity you choose, there’s an Eco-friendly accessory that can accompany it. No need to succumb to wasteful trends that use petroleum based rubbers and plastics. No need to purchase sneakers, workout clothes, and other essential gear manufactured in conditions that don't support fair wages and rights. Now, you can choose products that will support your inner goals while reinforcing a healthy planet at the same time. For instance, carry your own water bottle made from recycled steel; it that will stand up to the rigors of everyday wear and tear while being sustainable and supporting your health.

Science Daily reports on a study by Concordia University in Montreal which found that companies manufacturing green gear are sought after by consumers like you. Published in the Journal of Retailing, co-author of the study Maryam Tofighi commented, “Our findings indicate that consumers expect products with ethical attributes -- be they environmentally friendly, sustainably sourced or fair trade -- to come with a higher price tag. Companies would be wise to take advantage of those expectations,”

 

Don’t let the winter blues pull you down but rather look at this season as an opportunity to re-shift and reboot. From the balance of yoga, to the excitement of a team sport, this spring could be the new start you are looking for. Take your time to find the right activity you are passionate about, choose your green gear, and then enter your new path, fully loaded with a steadfast commitment to the most important commodity...you.

What is hypoallergenic pet bedding?

by @ Earth Doggy: Latest News

Pets, like humans, can suffer from allergies. Medi-Vet, an online resource for pet medications and health, reports the incidence of pet allergies seems to be on the rise. One type of problem becoming more common among pets is atopy. Atopy is an environmental allergy or an allergy that is within the pet's environment such as dust mites, mildew, mold or pollen. It is most common in dogs, but some cats are also affected. In these cases, eco-friendly hypoallergenic pet bedding may be helpful.

What does hypoallergenic mean?

Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary defines hypoallergenic as something that has a reduced propensity to cause an allergic reaction. Pet bedding that is hypoallergenic is made mostly of textiles and fillers that may cause fewer allergic reactions than non-hypoallergenic pet beds. Hypoallergenic pet beds help relieve environmental allergies by combining all-natural materials, reducing the likelihood of your pet's allergic reaction. Atopy depends on your pet's susceptibility when exposed to the allergen itself, and allergens can build up in non-hypoallergenic bedding. . Reducing the number of agents causing allergies to which your pet comes in contact will help reduce allergic reactions.

Why a hypoallergenic bed?

Organic or hypoallergenic pet bedding first and foremost will decrease any allergic sensitivity your pet may have to the various chemicals that may be in his bedding now. Dust mites found in bedding can cause health problems to pets as well as humans. Hypoallergenic bedding is specially designed to resist dust mites and other allergy-causing agents, making for a healthier sleeping environment for your four-footed friends.

What are hypoallergenic pet beds made of?

Most of the organic hypoallergenic pet beds on the market are filled with 100% cotton, organic buckwheat hulls, “green fiber” — stuffing made of recycled plastics -- and some contain hemp. Hemp bedding in particular is resistant to tears, mildew and sun damage.

Some hypoallergenic pet bedding is made with wool fleece which is naturally resistant to mildew, mold and dust mites. The wool fleece products also tend to resist odor-causing bacteria. Those with lanolin will add protection to your pet's skin and even discourage fleas.

Green Business Spawns More Green Jobs

by @ Green Home Library

They said it would happen and now it is coming to fruition. Starting with small business ventures and then catching the eye of Big Corp., green entrepreneurship and activist movements have begun spawning more green jobs in America and throughout the globe.

Although the current administration is supporting coal production, the need is no longer there. Since mechanization, coal industry jobs have diminished putting many out of work. The average number of employees at US coal mines dropped by 12% in 2015, according to the Energy Information Administration.

However, there is more demand elsewhere to put workers back on the map in the green sector. According to The Department of Energy's Energy and Employment Report it is predicted that green energy employment will have a 9% growth rate over the next 12 months — higher than any other energy sector.

Currently, Europe and Asia are taking the helm as the US trails, but hangs on to, green sector job growth until hopefully the White House comes to its senses, or succumbs to change.

They’re Blowing in the Wind

That’s right, wind energy jobs have increased from 3.4 million in 2011 to just over 4 million in 2017 according to a report published by the Environmental Defense Fund's Climate Corps program.

Business Insider writes,

“The report estimates that solar and wind jobs are growing at a rate 12 times as fast as the rest of the US economy and suggests that 46% of large firms have hired additional workers to address issues of sustainability over the past two years.”

If you have a small business, look into a wind energy choices from your local electric company. It is required in most states for the consumer to be able to choose their electricity source.

Smart Cities

With the steady growth of smart technology and smart homes, smart cities are on the parallel. Europe has recently reported of a “green jobs for a greener future” initiative citing several urban applications that will inevitably take over many conventional careers.

Some of these include:

  • Municipality - “We have identified, especially from the municipalities side, that there is a need to create new skilled jobs for the creation of specific cross-department teams to work on defining action plans for cities, supporting the design of solutions and an understanding of the needs," says Miguel Garcia, from the REMOURBAN project, which is pioneering new approaches to urban regeneration in the Spanish city of Valladolid, Nottingham in England, and Tepebasi/Eskisehir in Turkey.” (reported by Phys.Org)
  • Building Retrofit - Perfect for green small business startup jobs, retrofitting buildings with clean energy options and fixes has risen in demand due to money saving incentives.
  • Electric Car Infrastructure - As the alternative energy infrastructure rises in demand, more people are becoming electric car charging station installers and maintenance workers.
  • Solar Installation - As solar technology falls in price more commercial and residential installations have been sought after.

Cleanup

It's unfortunate that many will profit from man’s decades long environmental abuse, yet that is exactly what is happening. Certain sectors, small businesses, local organizations and even Big Corp. have finally wrapped their heads around the lucrative potential for green beautification, waterway cleanup, non-toxic cleaning, pure air initiatives and so much more.

One example that was originally considered a job killer is a mandate to cut pollution flowing into the Chesapeake Bay by 25 percent by 2025. A study of potential cleanup for 6 bay states that includesDelaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Virginia and West Virginia stated,

“If history is any guide, environmental regulations will once again nourish job creation, not bury it,

 

As more small businesses go green it will inevitably lead the way for business to business and consumer to business green job increase. Add in activist movements and environmental cleanup for more job opportunities and, regardless of antiquated, bottom line only thinkers, more people will see and reap the job benefits of Eco-friendly opportunities.
