7 Simple Tips To Green Your Event

Homeowners have a lot of worries, especially when it comes to paying their electrical energy bill. Rates are always rising and many are speaking of a looming energy crisis. Our two main forms of energy, coal energy and chemical energy, are also heavy pollutants not to mention the fact that they are both non-renewable resources. Energy conservation is a must, but many homeowners are only interested in finding affordable ways to heat their homes.

When we say energy saving hour it doesn’t only mean that we are only saving energy. We are also saving water. The most common source of energy comes from hydropower. Since water is a common source of our energy it means if we don’t have enough supply of water we have less supply of electricity too. With this fact, it’s telling us that we need to conserve water as possible. Examples would be fixing our water line that have leaks or damaged or minimizing our shower time. If it takes about 10 minutes to take a shower then you can minimize it to 5 minutes if it’s okay with you. Through this you are conserving a lot of water.

It is not difficult to construct your own solar panels and the bits and pieces are easily obtainable in even small towns. The same holds true for systems that will produce electricity from wind or water. The trick is to get a detailed plan from which to build your solar panels or other devices.

We cannot drive to work; cannot watch tv, listen to music, cook, online, light up our house at night and etc. This is because we won’t be supplied electricity if no more fossil fuel on earth! ( how to generate electricity as our power plant is based on fossil fuel to operate? ). Maybe you think that such a day will not exist, but let me tell you: “Petroleum and natural gas will run out in less than 50 years time and coal will run out in 100 years time”.

Don’t wash them so much. Washing machines consume huge amounts of water and energy, while utilizing harsh detergents and chemicals that do the environment no favors. Try to wash full loads less frequently, and line dry if possible. And avoid dry cleaning if you can.

Buy pre-owned fashion. If you do want to buy something, shop vintage. When you buy used clothing, you’re recycling it, saving it from the landfill. And it required no additional resources to power supplier produce it.

Beware of “greenwashing.” Many fashion companies like to claim that their clothes are green, but they may be jumping on the green bandwagon while actually harming the earth. For example, many companies are touting bamboo this and bamboo that, since the public perception is that bamboo is green. But not all bamboo is created equal. True, the plant is renewable, but forests and animal habitats are being cleared to make way for some plantations.

Living off the grid is a wonderful feeling. Knowing that you are out of the clutches of the oil tycoons brings more freedom and the next time there is a power cut or a price hike, you can just give a smile and forget about it, because you will be living off the grid.
