Question by I WUZ HERE: How can I go green without loosing to much green?
Just incase any one didnt understand the first green meant eco frinedly and the second green meant money.
Im only 13 and I only make like 20 dollars a week.
What are ways I can go green with less green.

Best answer:

Answer by ginny
Good for you, and you don’t have to spend much to make a big impact. If you take a lunch to school, don’t use plastic wrap and brown bags, use reusable. When you go shopping bring a bag from home for your purchases. When you take a shower, cut it as short a time as possible, and turn off the water while your lathering etc. Clothing bought second time around makes a huge impact on landfills and you can get twice as much for the same amount of $ $ $ Just being aware of waste and ways to change it will bring you lots of ways you personally can help erase your carbon foot print.

Eco Friendly Homes Q&A: can someone tell me everything they know about eco friendly homes in vancouver?

Question by ..abeana..: can someone tell me everything they know about eco friendly homes in vancouver?
its for an essay and i am very stressed out right now!!!

Best answer:

Answer by old lady
There are a number of them – they range from converted homes, which have added insulation, installed solar heating, and that sort of thing, to homes constructed from the ground up in an ecofriendly manner. Some, for example, begin with bales of hay for the inner core – it’s great insulation and doesn’t pose problems when the house has to be demolished.

Best answer:

Answer by VergeOfChaos
If your H1B is for consulting, then working elsewhere is a violation of status, and could get you removed. You would have to either adjust your status, or get another visa.

Pure Green Living Living room redecorating help!?

Question by reallywantthisjob: Living room redecorating help!?
Hi, I’m looking to paint my living room and the job is a bit harder than expected because I’m having trouble matching anything to the new couch. It’s not really a pure green, there are tiny bits of very light yellow and ivory in the fabric of it. I thought a pure yellow on the walls might make the color on the couch pop pop but now i’m not so sure.I feel like the couch might be a cool color and the 2 yellow colors I chose are too warm but I just can’t tell. Anyone have any suggestions/advice? Thank you!

Here’s a photo of the test swatches in front of a section of the couch…

Living Green Expo Someone please answer my stick insects question, I've made it yesterday and not one comment?

Question by : Someone please answer my stick insects question, I’ve made it yesterday and not one comment?
I have bought two New Guinea Stick Insects form an expo today. One a female and one a male. I got a pair for 60 they seem to be enjoying the apples and lettuce I gave them, but I was wondering about collard greens. Yes I know males can be aggressive and have those spurs on their back legs that can give you a nasty prick and a lot about them. I give them skinned apple bits and lettuce, but I want a bit more nutrition with collard greens. I know bok choy and arthropods don’t mix though. They can make them sick and kill them. I experimented on one of my baby roaches. It lived, but it was moving slowly for a while. But anyways. I sometimes have left over collards after my feeding of my pets so maybe I could give them some. I didn’t do it yet. Just waiting for an answer. Collard greens seem to be edible to my hissers, but I dunno about these guys.

Please , could anyone answer ASAP? I tried looking online, but it not being the most common invertebrate pet, makes it hard to find any foods edible to it. I’m, feeding mine lettuce and skinned apples so far, I want some more greens in the diet, because lettuce doesn’t have high vitamins or anything else.
Well ZI found out these guys are likign the strawberries and leaves so far, but I don’t think bok choys good though. I mean if it made oen of my baby roaches fatigued for a bit I don’t think it’s good for arthropods. Probably too acidic.

Question by De G: How does living in a green house change your atitute on the enviroment?
Do you think living in a green home will, by necessity, inspire its occupants to become environmentalist/naturalist or can living in a green home make its ocupants have a “greener” atitide?

Best answer:

Answer by frenchie_in_nola
By living in a green house, you already have a positive attitude towards keeping the environment clean.
Every step towards a better environment makes you do more for the environemnt. I think people in a green house also recycle their trash and their water, and have a good car.

But yes, I think that living in a green house will help you make better choices towards the environment.

Green Jobs Green Jobs?

Question by Inquisitive: Green Jobs?
Without any formal academic education, what is a good way for someone to either come up with a business or find a job that’s considered environmentally conscious or ‘green’?

Best answer:

Answer by Gemini-Wolf.com
A great thing to do, if you’re driven, would be to find a niche or some area that has a need not being met, and start a business. There was one lady who started a business of renting out children’s toys so they would get continual usage instead of being thrown out. That was her passion.

You could talk with the Small Business Administration. They provide free help if you’re interested.

If not, maybe start with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) if you want a large-scale governmental overview.

It will be about finding your passion. If you are in school, or enroll in a class, you can talk to various career counselors. They have free assessments that ask questions to narrow down your specific interest.

Personally, I love nature and would like to get outdoors more often. I have spoken before with a shaman lady who is very in tune with nature. You could study this as well and get skilled in shamanism, though that is many many years of development, even I’m not there.

Or learn about different trees, maybe Native Amerian medicine and such if you feel the calling to be a healer. If so, then Reiki is also very good for healing and trees love it.

Living Green Q&A: Living Green. . . . . . .?

Question by angel l: Living Green. . . . . . .?
I am all about living green. I completely believe that we need to step up and take care of our planet earth. There is one thing that I am kinda stuck on though. I see that grocery stores are selling cloth bags to carry your groceries home in. I totally understand why this is so. Plastic takes forever to decompose. When I take my plastic bags home with groceries I usually save them and use them in my small trash cans around the house. This way I feel that at least they are getting more than one use out of them. If I were to go out and buy the cloth bags and reuse them then what would I use in my trash cans?? I would probably have to buy small plastic trash can bags that will only get one use. This to me defeats the purpose of the whole thing in the first place. Does anyone see where I am comming from and if you I have missed something or you have other ideas, please let me know!

Best answer:

Answer by sas556
You are completely right. However, most people aren’t as smart as you and just keep throwing them out as well as buying trash bags. The store’s solution (reusable grocery bags) is best for the most amount of people. In my area at least, you can still get plastic, so you could still do it your way. Your idea is really good, though, and stores may change their minds if you talk to them about it. Just try and get your ideas out there to local (espescially eco-freindly) retailers.

Green Building How much do you think building a green house will cost 10 years from now, in comparison to the prices now?

Question by Ride Like The Wind: How much do you think building a green house will cost 10 years from now, in comparison to the prices now?
Currently, most green building materials are pretty expensive, at least in the US.
Say that it’d cost around $ 300,000-$ 400,000 to build a 3,000 square foot completely green house now.
How much would it cost 10 years from now?
What green materials do you think will be mass produced?

Best answer:

Answer by lisetrise
It’s hard to say – but since green is becoming more and more mainstream – and manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon to produce goods…..it may be less expensive than even now – with materials prices going so high.

You might be amazed to find that energy efficient home design (see:)

http://www.building-your-green-home.com/energy-efficient-home-design.html

and other features such as insulated concrete forms:

http://www.building-your-green-home.com/insulated-concrete-forms.html

can actually be affordable now as well as saving you bunches of money each and every month on your electric bill!
