A Green Thought of the Day! - 07/28/08 12:56 PM
When buying a gift, shop green. Look for items that encourage conservaton and sustainable living. There are plenty of Web sites promoting sustainable products. Consider buying friends and family canvas bags to take shopping or items made from recycled materials like street signs or old album covers. Chances are there won't be any awkward duplicates with unique recycled gifts. (1 comments)

Aluminum cans are one of the easiest items to recycle. From the time a can is turned in for recycling, it will take about sixty days for it to be sorted, cleaned, processed, filled and back on a store shelf. (0 comments)
A Green Fact! - 07/18/08 08:27 AM
Baking soda is a wonderful thing. It's sodium bicarbonate, a naturally occurring compound. It's nontoxic. It deodorizes. It's gentle abrasive--perfect for chrome or enamel. You can mix a quarter cup of baking soda with one quart of warm water to make a cleaning solution. Or you can just shake it directly on what you're cleaning. (0 comments)
Best Bet Home Improvements - 07/18/08 08:15 AM
If you're looking to improve the appearance of your home for resale, or you just want an updated look for your own enjoyment, there are a few things you must consider before beginning any costly project. Sure, you can spend a lot on something purely for the personal pleasure of having it-like that outdoor Jacuzzi under the attached gazebo-or you can go the practical route and make an improvement that will increase your home's market value, such as installing energy-efficient air-conditioning or repairing those shabby shingles. Be forewarned, however, and don't expect to recoup your costs on both counts. Many real-estate (0 comments)
Should You Rent Your Home? - 07/15/08 10:51 AM
Should You Rent Your Home The thought has probably crossed your mind: if you found the job of a lifetime in another state or your current company transferred you, should you sell or rent your home? Naturally there are many factors to weigh before making such an important decision. First, you need to think about your reasons for keeping ownership of the home. Do you like the home so much that you want to hold on to it in case you ever move back? Are you looking for an extra tax break through property depreciation? Do you want to use the (0 comments)
Green Fact--Energy Savings Add Up! - 07/15/08 10:44 AM
It takes95 percent less energy to produce an aluminum can from recycled aluminum than from bauxite ore. Making a glass bottle from recycled glass uses 40 percent less energy than making one from sand, soda ash, and limestone. Recycled newsprint uses 40 percent less energy than making newsprint from trees, although paper mills get power from scrap wood while most recycling mills rely on conventional power sources.

Gasoline $ense - 07/08/08 12:23 PM
Tips for Stretching You Tank In terms of the economy and its effect on our lives, there is no hotter topic than the outrageous prices we are seeing at the pumps. The maddening part is as consumers, we have zero control over these costs. To make matters worse, there's always that person who says something like, "You know, Europeans pay a lot more for gas than we do." That's true, but it doesn't make it any easier when we're reaching for our credit cards at the pump. The absolute worst part about high gas prices, however, is the notion of having (0 comments)
A Green Living Fact! - 07/03/08 10:34 AM
By replacing just five incandescent lights with compact fluorescent lights, a standard household could save up to $60 per year. That may not sound like much, but when it's multiplied by all the households in the United States, the grand total is $6.5 billion a year. The pollution equivalent is that this change would offset the same amount of greenhouse gases as 8 million cars. (0 comments)
