The American Water Works Association estimates that the average American household uses 69 gallons of water per capita daily. The largest portion, about 18 gallons, goes to toilet flushing. Then comes clothes washing...

Let's put Detroit back to work!" says Van Jones, author of The Green Collar Economy in this compelling clip.

He points out that wind turbines are as sophisticated as cars to manufacture-- why shouldn't they be built en masse by GM?

GREEN TIP: Plastic is generally toxic to produce, toxic to use, and toxic to dispose of. Learn how you can make safer choices.

Plastic products are everywhere. More and more we are discovering there are health risks that make these convenient products not so desirable. Plastics are releasing harmful chemicals into our air, foods, and drinks...

 

Editor's Note: Wendy's article is well researched and presented in a user friendly way.

With some knowledge of hydroponics, Britta Riley and her friends built a window farm in her New York apartment, but with a social media site and "open source collaboration," thousands of window farm enthusiasts from all over the world joined in building its best possible design...

Nobody’s figured out how to harness the awesome power of a tornado, but a Canadian engineer has come close: he’s working on creating a tornado that will generate electric power in what he calls an “Atmospheric Vortex Engine.”  (Isn’t that what powered Star Trek’s Enterprise?)

Here's a bulletin: building materials account for a big 40% of the waste in the U.S....so the emphasis on demolition of our aging structures is shifting to deconstruction, where doors, windows, sinks, hardwood floors (the list goes on and on) are being rescued, sold at terrific prices, and reused...

Now, don’t be put off by this rather long list — it’s all about doing what you can. Even if everyone made a few small changes, it all adds up. I’ve included both the small and big projects that you can do to go green. They are in no particular order but I did try to group them by category. And most apply both at home or at work. Here goes...

 

Editor's Note: Hey everybody - if every one of us did even half of these great green tips - and lots of them are EASY - our combined positive impact on the planet would be HUGE! Come on - let's do it!

Mother Nature designed chitin to be an exoskeleton for insects that can be either flexible or rigid…and that has inspired  Harvard researchers to invent a similar substance that may become a biodegradable replacement for plastic...

We may aspire to wear the glamorous creations sashaying down the runways of New York, Milan and Paris, but most of us only invest in some shoes, the ‘it’ bag, the underwear or perfume.  Just a spray on our pulse points and we can all wear Armani for the day...


Editor's Note: I love how Justin really exposes these "chemical cocktails" for what they are and offers some great alternatives like making your own scent using essential oils which is something that I do personally.

As the Holidays come around again, most of us will be pulling out our fancier dresses and suits, our wools and dry-clean “only” clothing. But did you know that most clothes (at least for us girls) that demand we only dry clean them, really don’t need anything more than gentle hand or machine washing? Granted, a good men’s wool suit can be hand washed, but handing it over to someone else to clean and press is so much easier...

For three years, "Living Buildings"—buildings that generate their own energy from renewable resources, capture and treat all the water they use, reclaim pre-developed sites, and fulfill a host of other requirements—have set the standard for green building.

 

Editor’s Note: Buildings account for 71% of America's electricity use and 38% of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the Department of Energy.  The Living Building Certification program not only requires buildings to bring the imported energy use of a building down to zero, but also includes goals pertaining to social justice, beauty, livability and universal access.  It is far more comprehensive than the better known green building certification program called LEED.

Urban Homestead: Local, Organic and in the City

from Organic Connections Magazine

The Dervaes family in Pasadena, California has converted 1/10 of an acre of urban land from concrete slab to gardens, and grows up to three tons of produce per year right there! Imagine what kind of food abundance and vitality would be available to us and our neighbors if those of us with access to land and water produced food where we live.
