Surrender is What Will Save You

Waste Not With Your Waste

by @ Green Home Library

The sacred wipe is a personal experience. In comparison to other countries, many Americans are spoiled enough to get ultra soft, moistened or a something in-between toilet paper wipe for their privileged bums. However, the result is taking its toll on the environment.

“The environmental research group WorldWatch Institute estimates that according to the World Wildlife Foundation, global toilet paper production wipes out about 27,000 trees per day, which comes out to almost 9 million trees per year.”

This is a staggering number which some experts determine could be much higher; possibly 15-20 million trees per year. Of course, some claim collected lumber and wood for paper is matched by an intricate regrowth program. This may be true, but the earth can only sustain so much harvesting until an area becomes so overused nothing will grow there for a while. Yet, humans still go to the bathroom with barely a worry for the crumbling forests around them as long as plenty of toilet paper is available for proper cleaning.

Waste not on waste when there are many other options that, once you realize, don’t have to include the enormous devastation and overuse of one of our many essential natural resources.

Recycled and Bamboo TP

Recycled toilet paper and many other recycled paper products from organizations like Emerald Brand offer one solution to overuse. Many posts and alleged studies try to discourage the use of recycled toilet paper however many of these have been linked to, you guessed it, Big Corp toilet paper companies.

According to the nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council, per year,

“...if every household in the United States replaced just one roll of virgin fiber toilet paper (500 sheets) with 100% recycled ones, we could save 423,900 trees.”

Be wary of your paper towel, tissue and toilet paper use. Many come with a long carbon footprint and chemical enhancement that is taking its toll on your planet. Instead, there are a variety of alternatives such as Bamtastic Bamboo Toilet Tissue made from 100% bamboo one of the most sustainable materials on earth. Plus, it is chlorine-free, BPA-free, and does not contain any dyes or fragrances.

Recycled and bamboo sourced toilet paper are just as soft, fluffy and effective as conventional choices but with less waste while doing your number two part for the planet.

Bidet is Best

Any new home or home improvement construction should consider including a bidet (“biday”). This is one of the most common additions to bathroom use throughout Europe and many other parts of the world except for North America. It involves self-controlled warm spritzes of water to rinse out your posterior while still seated after toilet use eliminating toilet paper except for a quick dry wipe. Some bidet’s include a warm air option to dry the backside so no toilet paper is necessary at all.

Some try to argue that a bidet still wastes water, however it takes much more water than used in one flush and one bidet session combined to produce one roll of toilet paper. Justin Thomas, of Metaefficient considers bidets to be “a key green technology” commenting to Scientific American,

“Basically, the huge industry of producing toilet paper could be eliminated through the use of bidets,”

In addition, when it comes to health and safety, wiping with toilet paper has shown to be more abrasive than a water bidet cleansing which is linked to less rashes and hemorrhoids. There are several models to look for with some that work as a cold water bidet system and others that include a hot and cold water bidet system. Either way, a bidet is an excellent replacement for toilet paper.

 

All it takes is a little adjustment to minimize the overuse of natural resources you use for waste and other personal tasks. Step up in green stature and waste not with your waste to keep Eco-friendly on all fronts... and backs.

Green Cosmetics: Know What to Buy

by @ Green Home Library

Nowadays you can hardly watch television or open a magazine without being bombarded by an ad for things like lipstick, perfume, eye shadow or cologne. Each one promises youth, sex and everything in between. However, pull back the veil of the glossy waif beauty or the six packed he-man and you may very well be surprised as to what actually makes up many of your beauty choices. There is ruthless animal testing, unreported insect ingredients, toxic chemicals and more. By choosing green cosmetics you will help support companies who make responsible environmental choices while protecting yourself from dangerous ingredients, and there's no need to compromise quality or capability.

What to Avoid

Before choosing your cosmetics, make sure to look for certain ingredients that could be hiding in between the lines. Even alleged eco-friendly products may contain chemicals that have been linked to a variety of potential skin allergies, irritations, trans-dermal microscopic synthetic toxins; pore blockage; fossil fuel production like petroleum and in some rare cases possible organ damage. Below is a list of some popular toxic ingredients to look for and avoid:

  • Parabens a/k/a methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben or butylparaben.
  • Phthalates a/k/a dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), SLS
  • Petroleum, Propylene Glycol
  • Coal Tar

Green Choices

The above ingredients may sound daunting and/or impossible to avoid however finding an alternative choice is not impossible as they are becoming more readily available. Read the label of green products which should show simple, botanical ingredients that are not harmful to you or the environment. Look for ‘cruelty free’ brands displaying the Humane Cosmetics Standard (HCS) label which promises that animal testing has not been carried out. There are also well marked petroleum-free products that compete with such things as lip balm and gloss. Beeswax is a great alternative which also supports environmentally essential bee farming. Certified organic is often a clear sign of a green, healthy product. However, do not be confused by words such as ‘natural’, ‘organic’ or ‘hypoallergenic’ as these may be misleading advertisement schemes to get you to purchase a non-green choice. Look for a ‘100% Certified Organic’, ‘USDA Organic’ or ‘Eco-Certified’ label to make sure the product you are considering is adhering to strict, green standards. There is also the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics contract that many companies have signed and made available on their products and/or company info. Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Cosmetics database - Skin Deep is a fantastic resource for finding out what's really in your products.

Self-Lab

Sometimes you can create your own green cosmetics by simply formulating your own products at home. Body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and even toothpaste can all be made to order by you. It may take some time but you can save money, the environment and avoid toxins by knowing every step that goes into your product. Plus, the lack of packaging alone is a great step.

Green cosmetics show the potential of anything being adaptable to socially conscious responsibilities. Ignore the hype and listen to your body, offering it an embraceable, natural choice as opposed to the synthetic, potentially toxic flavor of the month.

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.

Fight Mineral Depletion in Your Favorite Greens

by @ Green Home Library

From the world of climate science comes the unsettling news that carbon dioxide, or CO2, actually reduces protein and nitrogen in staple grains like rice, wheat and barley.

CO2 Will Not Improve Plant Nutrition

Previously, it was thought that CO2 would improve plant growth and, as a result, food plant yields. Not so. In fact, atmospheric CO2 increases carbohydrates like starch and sugar, but depletes essential trace minerals, often more than nine percent.

That’s a lot of loss when it comes to the 13 essential minerals, 7 of which are vital to life: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc (some scientists even include sodium, which is abundant in most diets).

The Seven Vital Nutrients

...are considered essential to everything from the immune system, the heart, and the Central Nervous System, to adequate hemoglobin in blood, sexual maturity, and metabolism. Diets low in minerals, especially zinc  and iron, result in poor growth in childhood, an immune system poorly equipped to fight off infections, and a greater number of maternal and child deaths.

This depletion in the bioavailability of minerals is “systemic and global” and may dramatically worsen the prevalence of “hidden hunger” and obesity. This type of malnutrition is typical of poor and undeveloped countries because many people cannot afford the fruits, vegetables, dairy and meats necessary to provide complete nutrition.

Lack of Plant Nutrients Raising Obesity Epidemic?

Unfortunately, it is also being seen in greater numbers in developed nations as the disparity between rich and poor grows. In the USA – according to New York Time columnist David Brooks – this gap is about 0.45, or worse than Iran. Brooks also notes that income inequality in New York City is similar to Swaziland. Miami is like Zimbabwe, and Los Angeles is equivalent to Sri Lanka.

Looking into the future, study author Loladze suggests that these food plant deficiencies might contribute to the rise in global obesity as people eat increasingly starchy grain crops, etc., consuming more and more to make up for the lack of vital nutrition.

What You Can Do

You can make sure that you (and your family and loved ones) do not suffer from vitamin/phytonutrient/mineral deficiencies. According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, broccoli sprouts are a superb source of minerals like calcium and magnesium, containing 10 to 100 times more cancer and inflammation fighters than full-sized broccoli plants, as well as vitamins and essential fatty acids produced during sprouting. Broccoli sprouts also help detox from many environmental pollutants like benzene.

They are easy to grow with a little planning and care. They are also easy on the budget, requiring little more than an old jar, some cheesecloth, and some seed. You can use sunflower seeds, broccoli seeds, and alfalfa seeds, to name but a few.

The "Indoor Salad Garden"

You can also grow some small vegetables indoors, in an “indoor salad garden”. Dr. Mercola, a leading health expert, recommends watercress, which reportedly has greater nutrient density than either broccoli or alfalfa sprouts.

You can even add various lettuces, green onions, arugula, spinach and mesclun to your salad garden. You can build racks to set in front of patio doors – but not directly, as this will freeze the plants. You can buy plant lights at any big-box home and garden store. Or you can spend up to $500 for a full-featured, tiered indoor growing system.

In short, as mega-farming and increasing CO2 levels rob plants of their nutrition, you can feed your family well on an hour or two a week planting, growing and harvesting sprouts and other salad vegetables.

Storing Your Home-Grown, Nutrient Rich Greens

Once your plants are harvested, be sure to store them in USA-made, BPA-free plastic food containers manufactured from recycled plastic. These eco-friendly food storage containers will definitely “green” your kitchen, even if it is red and blue.

Post Holiday Eco-Solutions

by @ Green Home Library

When the holidays are over, you have an opportunity to utilize some post holiday Eco-solutions rather than add to the continual waste around you. These are ways to harness various resources from your holiday leftovers for the betterment of your community and the planet.

Scrape the Scraps

If you have a composting system setup, after holiday meal scraps are perfect to add. If you don’t, now is the best time to start one. Plus, if you use compostable products for your holiday event, this is yet another opportunity to drastically reduce your garbage footprint.

No compost, no problem. Pack up those leftovers and donate to a homeless shelter or make a soup out of the scraps and help feed the needy.

Scoop the Paper

Wrapping paper that can be salvaged, folded and stored will save you time, money and unnecessary waste when your next present needs to be wrapped.

Scoop up as much used wrapping paper as you can and toss it in a pile until you can go through it. Cut in squares and place in a box under your bed or in a back closet for a treasure trove of recycled-upcycled designs that would otherwise end up in a landfill. You can do the same with empty boxes and if storage is a problem, gently pull them apart and store flat with wrapping paper. When needed, simply glue, tape or staple corners back together and you have a free gift box ready to go.

Tree to Earth

If you celebrate the holiday with a real Christmas tree then it is your responsibility to put your tree back into the earth. With over 10 million Christmas trees ending up in landfills each year, recycling yours is essential. Sure, if a tree is in a landfill, just like many compostable products, it will eventually biodegrade. However, it is the release of methane gas from these and other biological landfill waste that has become a huge problem for global warming.

Recycled trees can be used for many things including landscaping mulch or stream bank stabilization. Some businesses that sell trees offer recycling incentives. You can also contact the National Christmas Tree Association or check your local listings for a Christmas tree recycling program near you.

E-Waste

With holiday gifts comes holiday waste and electronics are at the top of the list. The amount of e-waste that is produced has become a serious problem due to the degenerating toxicity from these devices.

Small Footprint Family reports that,

“Each year, 130 million cell phones are thrown out, weighing approximately 65,000 tons. Recycling your old phone prevents hazardous elements like mercury, cadmium and lead from ending up in our landfills.”

Before dumping your old cell phone, tablet, computer or other used electronic device look into energy efficient programs near you or afar able to recycle and re-use rare earth metals and other components. Some organizations will even send you a prepaid mailing envelope to ship your e-waste to their company while paying you for it at the same time.

Digital Thank You’s

Once all the dust settles, you may want to send out some thank you notes. Yes, it’s nice to receive a handwritten note in a mailed envelope however, practically speaking, it wastes paper.

There are hundreds of digital ‘thank you’ sites offering a variety of graphics and delivery options to make your digital thank you just as special as a handwritten one. Some even include picture uploads so you can send images of the baby and kids, pets, grandparents and more.

 

Post holiday Eco-solutions are easy and smart. All it takes is a little wherewithal to gather up the loose ends so your after holiday carbon footprint is significantly reduced.

How to get around Bangkok by BTS Bangkok, MRT Bangkok & Bangkok Airport Rail Link?

by Emily Nguyen @ Living + Nomads – Travel tips, Guides, News & Information!

Bangkok’s “feature” is the traffic jam, so even if the cost of a taxi is cheap, moving by taxi when traveling to Bangkok is not a wise choice. By contrast, the subway system in Bangkok runs exactly in a minute, covering most major tourist destinations, can help you save a lot of time and money. […]

Get Your Eco-Friendly Fashion On

by @ Green Home Library

Of course you want to look good all the time and your choice of clothes certainly reflects that. However, the behind-the-scenes story of what, where and how your wardrobe is produced may be surprising, especially if you consider yourself a green supporter.

Get your Eco-Friendly fashion on by revamping what clothes and accessories you choose to purchase going forward. It is yet another opportunity to up your green game and literally walk the walk in the some sustainable shoes, shirts and more.

The Trickle Down

Choosing the right fabric is essential to Eco-Friendly fashion. The most popular fabrics are:

  • Cotton
  • Rayon
  • Wool
  • Oil-based synthetics: polyester, acrylic, nylon, spandex

It is however, oil-based synthetics like polyester that are at the top of the Eco-Unfriendly chain as they are derived from crude oil that requires high energy extraction and melting of plastic manufacturing. Plus, when these break down they are far from compostable as residue can leach into waterways and subsequently fertilizer which cycles into plants, livestock and you.

This trickle down effect shows the potential, slow, toxic environmental accumulation which, over time, is believed by some to indirectly be an underlying contributor to many cancers.

What Else Not to Choose

Revamping your wardrobe understandably takes time but eventually you may be able to swap out oil-based synthetics as well as other environmental drains such as:

  • Leather - Unethical treatment of animals as well as agricultural methane global warming contributor.
  • Rayon - Derived from wood pulp and threatens water conservation.
  • Non-Organic Cotton - Most pesticide intense crop and chemically treated material on the planet threatening humans and wildlife.
  • Polycotton - According to Green Choices, “virtually all polycotton (especially bedlinen), plus all ‘easy care’, ‘crease resistant’, ‘permanent press’ cotton, are treated with toxic formaldehyde (also used for flameproofing nylon).
  • Wool - Avoid wool from UK farms that use organophosphate sheep dip which creates serious hazards for both agricultural and craft workers.
  • Dyed - Avoiding dyed fabrics conserves water, reduces river/ocean pollution, and cuts down on heavy metal exposure.

Stick To

As you travel along your new Eco-Fashion path look for materials that tell a story. Many offer transparency advertising that tout various attributes including fair trade supported practices, organic manufacturing, recycled and sustainable materials usage.

Materials with a more sustainable footprint include:

  • Organic cotton
  • Organic wool
  • Hemp
  • Bamboo
  • Bagasse (from sugar cane)

You can also keep an eye out for clothing tags that show use of recycled-upcycled material saved from landfills, Eco-friendly treated, and repurposed for safe wear.

One pioneer for recycled-upcycled usage is Rachel Faller who started her company Tonlé. Her products are completely void of virgin materials saving tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere.

Green Matters describes her mission:

“By upcycling discarded pre-consumer fabric from clothing factories, she transforms fabric destined for the trash can into treasured clothing, bags, and jewelry. Based in Cambodia, Faller’s team regularly visits manufacturers to save hundreds of pounds of scrap materials from landfill. Once saved, her production team works to make sure every single scrap is put to use. Large scraps are cut down to make clothes while smaller pieces are made into a yarn like material to be woven. For the tiniest scraps, the company has created a formula for paper which allows them to turn small bits of scrap into hang tags and office paper. Through this process the company is able to close the loop in production while working in tandem with their zero waste mission.”

Faller is one example of many young and old entrepreneurs alike paving the way for a whole new fashion industry sector that may one day be the norm.

Ethical Tools

Yup, there are even apps to inform you of ethically made clothing and other goods such as non-toxic cleaning products, bath and spa products, as well as materials derived from workers under inhumane conditions.

Apps to try are:

  • GoodGuide
  • Free2Work
  • Shop Ethical
  • aVoid
  • The Higg Index

 

Get your Eco-Friendly fashion on and stop supporting consumer driven global health and human threats. In due time your wardrobe will consist of green choices that pay it forward to a more sustainable future.

We're heading into Vietnam's tourist high season. Visitors -- whether overseas Vietnamese or not -- flock to Vietnam when the weather is cooler and drier. Of course this all depends on where you are. It's just less hot and humid in and around Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), rather damp, cool and dreary in the Hue area, and downright wet and cold to the bone in Hanoi and its environs. As a long, skinny country, Vietnam's regional climates are as varied as its regional foods. If you're going soon, pack layers should you be traveling the entire country. A trip to Vietnam is nothing without eating lots of Vietnamese food. Jason emailed last week about his upcoming trip and sent this query: I'll be traveling...

Here’s the Thing About Eating Dog in Vietnam…

Before arriving, we'd read a lot about the Vietnamese penchant for chowing down on "man's best friend". However, during our three months in Saigon, we hadn't seen a single plate of dog being offered anywhere, and decided the stories were exaggerated. But it turns out that, in the north, they do eat dog. And it's not exactly uncommon.

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.

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.
