Earth Light Pollution Got Light?

Earth light pollution an explanation, so when you think of pollution, the humble light bulb probably doesn’t come to mind. Instead, you might envision smoke stacks belching clouds of smoke, or a sky heavy with smog. Keep those smoke stacks in mind, though – they do have something to do with light pollution.

Humankind’s electrical illumination of the earth can be seen from outer space. While the effect is stunning and beautiful, there is a growing movement toward lessening artificial lighting. Called “light pollution,” the excessive use of electrical lighting is said to have a significant environmental impact. Here are some reasons why some people are concerned about light pollution.

Healing Foods - Foods with Healing Properties Like These Pictured Can Make Us Healthier, Increase Longevity, and Promote a Higher Quality of Life

Healing foods have been around since the beginning of man, however, within the past decade or so, advances in technology and research have provided us with insight into what actual health benefits these foods have to offer. We have been able to isolate and identify all the various nutrients, flavonoids, and phytochemicals and pinpoint their assorted benefits. There have been boatloads of new data as to the benefits of eating healthy, and some of these foods amount to being labeled as ‘superfoods’, those that are beneficial to us if we consume them on a regular basis.

We have long know that many fruits and vegetables are good for us, but we have not known to what extent the benefits amount to. Phytochemicals have become the focus of the recent rash of research, and are considered the vitamins of the future. The resulting reports conclude the benefits range from cancer prevention, cholesterol reduction and hormone regulation, to anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, cardiovascular disease, and anti-inflammatory are among those discovered. We have compiled this list and are adding to it as we go along, as it takes time to compile all the data and information into our list. We have our list here, and each one, if not already linked to a specific page for that healing food, will have one in the near future with specifics on that particular food. Read more…

Sustainable Green Heating Systems Explained

Sustainable Green Heating Systems Explained, Which type is Best For You?

Many people are looking for sustainable green heating systems to heat their homes with utility costs on the rise and environmental concerns becoming more important than ever. It can be a bit baffling, however, as you try to sort them all out. Here is a list of some of the better-known green systems, and a brief explanation of each.

Types of Sustainable Green Heating Systems

1. Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) make use of the relatively steady temperature under the earth’s surface. GHP systems are largely underground in this temperature-stable area, where it’s cool in the summer (think root cellars) and warm in the winter (being below the frost line).

Sometimes called “geo exchange systems,” GHPs make use of a heat pump that removes the cold air from the home and puts it back into the ground to be re-absorbed. Read more…

Landscaping Tips for Water Conservation

Many people think that landscaping is a great way to preserve water. On the other hand, most critics challenge this fact by saying that landscaping is the number one water consumer. This is because they believe that the more colorful and organized the garden is, it just has to be consuming a larger amount of water.

Over recent times research has shown that landscaping actually only uses up 2.9% of the overall national water consumption and this could be lowered still if people would just stop to consider the limitation of the water supply.

So how are the excesses in water consumption accounted for? According to some experts, the major cause of unnecessary water consumption in landscaping is when it is not used properly and only the people who carry out improper use of the water can be held responsible for this.

Poor landscaping plans and incorrect irrigation systems are just two of the common mistakes made by people using water when landscaping their gardens or yards.

Many experts state that the natural resource of water can supply up to 67% of the total amount of water used in any given year, so taking this into account we are faced with an immense opportunity to preserve water.

The fact remains however, that gardeners and landscapers are a mind to themselves and make their own decisions in choosing what to do, regardless of any guidance supplied by the experts on how best to preserve water when preparing their gardens.

How can we make a difference? Well, the perfect example would be a water sprinkler set on an automatic timer providing the required use of water for a controlled amount of time. If the sprinkler is set to operate during hours of low temperature, immediate evaporation would not occur and the plants would receive more benefits of the water.

Any reasonably experienced landscaper is aware that the life of his plants does not depend entirely on water alone. Pests need to be done away with in order to maintain the gardens landscaped appearance and to keep the plants healthy.

There are many natural ways to destroy pests, such as encouraging pest-eating bugs to live in your yard. These include ladybugs, stink bugs, and assassin bugs. These various bugs eat anything from aphids and potato bugs to mealy bugs and spider mites.

Another way to discourage pests is to alternate the planting of different species of plant. Pests like certain plants, and if a bunch of the plants are grouped together the pests will have a population explosion. By spacing out the plants, fewer pests are attracted and so there are fewer offspring.

People should always keep in mind that it is not necessary to use a large amount of water to maintain a well landscaped garden or backyard. Water conservation and gardening should go hand in hand, concluding that the use of water should be both efficient and controlled.

Eco-Friendly Ways to Pave Your Driveway

A brick driveway which is more eco friendly!

Eco-Friendly Ways to Pave Your Driveway, driveways paved with concrete or asphalt do not absorb rainwater. Storm run-off therefore is channeled into creeks and rivers, increasing the risk of flooding. As more communities are becoming aware of this problem, alternative, permeable materials for driveway paving are being explored and used.

The key is paving driveways with water-absorbing materials that allow rain to soak into the ground, raising the ground water level rather than filling creeks and streams. Read more…
