Green Living Furniture How do I decorate a room with forest carpet- and still have it look modern?

Question by katt_z_bratt: How do I decorate a room with forest carpet- and still have it look modern?
“moving into a cond that has wall to wall forset green carpets in the living room and up the stairs. Our furniture and excecories are ALL black and modern, (Were not averse to buying a new neutral colored sofa etc-our are old anyway) What color s should we paint? And how can we decorate without totally changing our “style”

Best answer:

Answer by me
You can either kill the green carpet or embrace it. At the very least I would break it up with large area rugs that will incorporate your black till you settle in.

Green Living Guide How to not feel depressed after coming back from a vacation?

Question by *: How to not feel depressed after coming back from a vacation?
I took a vacation from Arizona last month. I was loving the green country, beaches, and 70 to 80 degree weather. Unfortunately, it came time for me to return, and I was unhappy the entire plane ride, and the second I got off the plane it was the instant remembrance that I’m in hell again. I truly do hate this place, with it’s dry, water less desert, blaring sun, and 110 degree temperatures. It’s been a month since I’ve been back home here and I’m still depressed.

Best answer:

Answer by Quesoamericano
If you want to cool off you can always swim (There might be more pools than people in phoenix :) Anyways, try doing things you can do here that you couldn’t do on vacation. For example, if you went to Chinatown, get some good Italian food.

Sustainable Home Design What's the difference between geological engineering & environmental engineering?

Question by Rain Bow: What’s the difference between geological engineering & environmental engineering?
What different environments/situations do they work in? Which is more popular?

Best answer:

Answer by El Greco © 
geological engineering

What does a Geological Engineer do?

Geological engineering integrates two disciplines — geology and engineering. Geologists study the earth — its origins, its composition, and its evolution. Engineers apply scientific principles to practical ends, such as in the design and construction of infrastructure and facilities. Geological engineers help find the best ways to use the earth’s resources to solve technical problems in an environmentally sustainable manner. Geological engineers might solve problems associated with man-made structures in rock or soils such as dams, tunnels, roadways, and power plants. In addition, they may help mitigate naturally occurring phenomena such as floods, landslides, earthquakes and tsunamis or develop safe and environmentally sound subsurface openings for mineral extraction, energy storage and waste disposal or remediate polluted sites and restore contaminated aquifers.

Geological Engineering is an interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate program offered by the College of Engineering in cooperation with the Department of Geology and Geophysics. Nearly all GLE graduates are eligible for a second major in geology and typically seek both P.E. and P.G. registration.

Curriculum Overview

A geological engineer might, for example, be hired to design or construct man-made structures in rock or soil or to help protect us from naturally occurring phenomena or to devise remediation of contaminated sites and groundwater. Geological engineers find employment with a wide variety of organizations including construction and mining companies, geotechnical and hydrogeological consulting firms, petroleum producers, government research laboratories, and federal and state environmental and water resource agencies. Common tasks undertaken by geological engineers include site reconnaissance, drilling and sampling, laboratory and field testing, field instrumentation and monitoring, and analysis and design. To prepare geological engineers to undertake such assignments, a rigorous curriculum of courses in basic sciences (mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry), geology/geophysics, engineering sciences/design, liberal studies, and communication arts is required.

—————————————————————–
environmental engineering

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the natural environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation (house or home) and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites. It involves waste water management and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, and public health issues as well as a knowledge of environmental engineering law. It also includes studies on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects.

Environmental engineers conduct hazardous-waste management studies to evaluate the significance of such hazards, advise on treatment and containment, and develop regulations to prevent mishaps. Environmental engineers also design municipal water supply and industrial wastewater treatment systems as well as address local and worldwide environmental issues such as the effects of acid rain, global warming, ozone depletion, water pollution and air pollution from automobile exhausts and industrial sources. At many universities, Environmental Engineering programs follow either the Department of Civil Engineering or The Department of Chemical Engineering at Engineering faculties. Environmental “civil” engineers focus on hydrology, water resources management, bioremediation, and water treatment plant design. Environmental “chemical” engineers, on the other hand, focus on environmental chemistry, advanced air and water treatment technologies and separation processes.

Additionally, engineers are more frequently obtaining specialized training in law (J.D.) and are utilizing their technical expertise in the practices of Environmental engineering law.[citation needed]. About four percent of environmental engineers go on to obtain Board Certification in their specialty area(s) of environmental engineering

Green Living Room What color should I paint my living room. I have cherry wood laminate and a golden/mustard color sectional?

Question by Cook: What color should I paint my living room. I have cherry wood laminate and a golden/mustard color sectional?
Also I have an area rug with browns, yellow, greens, beige, burnt orange with a leaf motif. I have a room next to my living room with a light green, it was suggested by a friend to stay in the light green family of paint.

Best answer:

Answer by LadyTazzy
I think if you chose a goldish color that would blend, and is much lighter than your sectional, it would really warm up the room. You can get golds with a hint of green in them, but I would stay away from green. When choosing a color, I always go get the sample and tape it to the wall for a couple of days, to see which color I would prefer in that room.

Question by burton235: Are the youth of today the most brainwashed in history?
They’ll believe just about anything they read/see on the internet without checking the facts, its so easy to fool them. I mean they all buy into global warming/green living movement (which seems more like a religion everday) while having no concept of how energy really works. They demand change NOW, and don’t understand the facts, or care, just plain ignorant. I am really worried as these people will one day rule this world – I just hope they don’t ruin it.

Forget this “green” crap. It’s garbage. It is at best a pipe dream for people who do a lot of crack and smoke a lot of dope.

Green Construction What are the roles of a Quantity Surveyor in promoting and helping to create Sustainable Construction?

Question by cfpy211004: What are the roles of a Quantity Surveyor in promoting and helping to create Sustainable Construction?
Quantity Surveyor is also known as a Building Cost Consultant or a Construction Estimator.

So I’m curious as to what part can a QS play when it comes to embracing the environment and developing Sustainable Construction.

Best answer:

Answer by dr_cook76
These guys are really just bean counters. They just keep track of costs, or estimate costs for proposals of a new building. Maybe they can find savings from one part of a project to spend on a “sustainable” part of the project.
You need the architect of record to be the one pushing for sustainable construction. Also the owner of the project has to really want to do it. Things like geothermal HVAC systems and living roofs with solar panels are great for sustainable construction. But the up front cost are ENORMOUS! A typical HVAC sytem for a commercial building is about $ 40,000. A geothermal system in the same building is $ 500,000. It will pay itself off in the long run, but that could be 15-20 years. Govenment might be able to afford those kinds of upgrades for a school or library that they plan on using for 80 years; but a developer that’s trying to make money isn’t going to want to spend 10 or 20 times the cost just to “be green”.

Green Smart Living Q&A: How do I get my life/family more eco-friendly?

Question by David: How do I get my life/family more eco-friendly?
I love nature and the environment, but its really hard to go green. Any little tips I can use to help myself and my family maintain a lifestyle helpful to the ecosystem?

Best answer:

Answer by Haylee loves jasiepooo
• Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.

• Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out.

• Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Or, use a “smart” power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts “phantom” or “vampire” energy use.

• Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.

• Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying.

• Take shorter showers to reduce water use.

• Install a low-flow showerhead.

• Make sure you have a faucet aerator on each faucet.

• Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden.

• Walk or bike to work.

• Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer. Even if this means paying more rent, it could save you money in the long term.

• Lobby your local government to increase spending on sidewalks and bike lanes. With little cost, these improvements can pay huge dividends in bettering your health and reducing traffic.

• If you eat meat, add one meatless meal a week.

• Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy.

• Watch videos about why local food and sustainable seafood are so great.

• Whatever your diet, eat low on the food chain. This is especially true for seafood.

• Skip the bottled water.

• Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but it generates large amounts of container waste.

• Bring a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when traveling or at work.

• Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether you’ve just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like craigslist or FreeSharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free.

• Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items.

• Watch a video about what happens when you buy things. Your purchases have a real impact, for better or worse.

• Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books.

• Share power tools and other appliances. Get to know your neighbors while cutting down on the number of things cluttering your closet or garage.

• Buy in bulk. Purchasing food from bulk bins can save money and packaging.

• Wear clothes that don’t need to be dry-cleaned. This saves money and cuts down on toxic chemical use.

• Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products. You might pay more now, but you’ll be happy when you don’t have to replace items as frequently (and this means less waste!).

• Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible.

• Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem.

• Recycle your cell phone.

• Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event.

• Make your own cleaning supplies.

• Join the Million Car Carbon Campaign by purchasing your Earth-Aid kit today.

• The big secret: you can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap.
Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention your indoor air quality.

Green Materials Where can I find those neon color water shoes?

Question by Mat: Where can I find those neon color water shoes?
I was just wondering if anyone knew a place online, or in real life where I could get a pair of those neon color water shoes/socks.
The ones that have grip on the bottom, and just thin green/pink material on the top.

Thanks for the help!

Best answer:

Answer by Kaitlin B
I used to get those when I was little. I think you can find them at Wal-Mart, Shopko, Target, that kind of place. I don’t think they carry them year-round, though, so you might have to wait until they’re back in season.
