Green Living What are some little/big things companies can do to encourage "green" activities in the workplace?

Question by kathy_is_a_nurse: What are some little/big things companies can do to encourage “green” activities in the workplace?
For example, providing filtered water fountains designed for refilling company-provided water bottles (versus buying disposable commercial water bottles) or renovating a “fleet” of used bicycles for employee use. How about ideas on managing a company-wide recycling program to get more people to participate? How about working with local farmers or even sponsoring an employee garden?

Part of this question includes: How do companies make these initiatives work? Do you know any companies that have a real handle on this subject?

BTW, This is research for a series of articles and I’m trying to come up with practical tips for the reader. I’ve posted similar questions in the “Business” and “Green Living” sections but have only got a few answers. Since “Politics” is one of the most active sections, I’m hoping to get more activity. And yes, I am looking in other areas as well… Just want to cover all my bases.

Don’t let me down and thanks for your help
These days, I’m a freelance writer… Hence the article series. One of my clients requested them. And yes, I know some ideas aren’t new… but I’m looking for the ones that are.

Thanks
Mabe… So HOW does your company encourage the “green” way? Can you give some examples?

Thanks

Green Technology Why do the green goblins object to nuclear as it is the only way to power a nation without using CO2?

Question by Richie – AGW Skeptic: Why do the green goblins object to nuclear as it is the only way to power a nation without using CO2?
Or are these alarmunists trying to destroy the future for our grandchildren by forcing silly expensive impracticable green technology upon us. Let’s face it… if during the winter the wind stops blowing and the sun stops shining we will all freeze to death and starve!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Arthur Dent, Camel Racer
I prefer some waste Co2 as opposed to spent nuclear fuel. Nuclear waste has a half life of about 24,000 years. And what is the answer? How do you properly dispose of something like that?

Personally, I like the space based solar energy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space-based_solar_power They’ve been kicking this idea around since the ice age scare…

Sustainable Green Living Where are the best areas in America for horticulture?

Question by Mongoose_28: Where are the best areas in America for horticulture?
I really want my own land, and for relatively cheap as I am a poor college student. Just a few acres. I want to have a small sustainable organic mini-farm to feed me and my wife. I am willing to work hard with the land to create good soil. I was wondering which areas are best for this considering climate and any other considerations.

P.S. As a side note, I would love to have some honeybee hives some day too! does this change where I should try to get land?

Best answer:

Answer by oso83854
Try some of the smaller communities in the central Midwest, but make sure you check with the local Agricultural Extension office to find out about rainfall, irrigation, types of crops that are best for that area, etc. Southern Oregon is an ideal place for truck or fruit farming, but land is typically very expensive. Some rural areas in the southeast are also good bets, but make sure you know as much as possible about local restraints (pest control, water, soil condition, erosion, etc.).

Green Construction Why is it "greener" to continue driving my sports car than to sell it and buy a Hybrid?

Question by Ryan T: Why is it “greener” to continue driving my sports car than to sell it and buy a Hybrid?
I’ll get a Hybrid someday, but I’ve heard the “green” conclusion above, just no supporting facts.

Best answer:

Answer by Curious
Depends on how much energy it takes to make a new hybrid car compared to the energy your sports car is already consuming… Everything takes energy – the company has to build a new car before you can drive it…

Green Jobs Q&A: What exactly are "green jobs"? Why do they only exist in the imagination of liberals?

Question by turd furgeson: What exactly are “green jobs”? Why do they only exist in the imagination of liberals?
All this talk about “green jobs” and so little substance on the matter. What is a green job? And if it’s so important, why doesn’t the private sector (which fuels are whole economy) produce any of them? Why is it that the government, which creates unsustainable, wasteful programs that cannot exist on their own… the only ones that are talking about green jobs?

Green Living Technologies Q&A: What ever happened to the idea of using nuclear power as a domestic power source?

Question by VINNAALMA: What ever happened to the idea of using nuclear power as a domestic power source?
It works on nuclear subs and the like, why isn’t this being used to power cities and towns? I know it employs a dangerous risk, but truth be told one is more likely to die in a car crash to or from work than from a nuclear meltdown. Is it just not as cost effective as people once thought? Did the current green movement halt this idea? What happened?

Best answer:

Answer by doug_donaghue
Yeah, everybdy started worrying about how to store the (extremely hot) byproducts of fission reactors in such a way that they couldn’t possibly get back into the environment for several half-lives so they’d be ‘cool’ enough not to be dangerous.
Unfortunately…… We don’t know enough about engineering to build leakproof vaults capable of lasting (guaranteed) for several milion years.
Where to store the expended fuel we currently have usually turns into a huge NIMBY (‘Not In My Back Yard) brawl between the States. And transporting it is an even more massive circus than moving a nuclear warhead.

Green Tips Do the bulbs growing on my moonflower need to be removed and planted? If so, how?

Question by Shannon J: Do the bulbs growing on my moonflower need to be removed and planted? If so, how?
I live in north Texas (Dallas-Fort Worth area) and I have a question about a moonflower vine. It has been growing nicely in a large pot, but it has developed three large bulbs with little green tips sticking out of the end of them. I am not sure what to do with the bulbs. I know that they are not flower buds, they are larger than the flowers we have had, and have been there quite a while without any kind of blooming.

I actually cracked one open, and it looked like a large seed inside. The second one appears to be drying out, and the third looks very much alive. Could you please tell me if these need to be removed and planted?

Best answer:

Answer by `•.¸¸.•´´¯`••._.•Herb
In late fall, remove the dry seed pods and save them for spring. Each pod contains 100′s of seeds. (Wear gloves, when they’re dry, they hurt). Keep in cool dry area over winter, Pull out the rest of the plant and dispose of. After last frost, soak seeds in warm water for 8 hours or slightly longer. Then plant about 1 inch deep, directly in soil.
The plant may have stopped blooming from over fertilization.

I’m going to go to Norway and I can’t bring Slither (My Rough Green Snake) with me. What do I do?

Best answer:

Answer by godzilla53097
Leave it with a friend. Do you have any neighbors who would be willing to feed it and take care of it? I think paying them would be a smart idea. Or maybe find a reptile hospital and see if they could board Slither, like boarding a cat or dog. I always have a friend who is willing to take care of my leopard geckos and garter snake. I think either teaching a neighbor how to care for Slither, or go to a reptile hospital and see if they could board him. I can’t say for sure what you should do since I don’t know what kind of area you live in.

Green Building How do I get individual grants to start a non-profit private full inclusion school?

Question by Chryss: How do I get individual grants to start a non-profit private full inclusion school?
Hi,

I want to start a full inclusion private pre-k through sixth grade school in San Francisco. I would like to build the campus from scratch in order to cater to children with special needs and also to make it a green building with an organic garden. Where do I start? Where can I get funding? I’m just starting by myself for now. Should I try to start a non-profit group first?

Thanks for any help and advice!

Best answer:

Answer by luckyme
To begin with…starting any business (even schools) you need a good business plan. The plan outlines the business, how much money you need to begin with, and itomize everything you need for “start up” or “seed money” – how much will everything cost, licensing, qualifications, design specs, location/zoning laws, goals of the business and various other plans for your business.
Private schools are very difficult to get funding for because they are private. In other words, people PAY for their children to attend a private school. So private schools automatically make money on tuition. Public schools are free. Also schools for children with special needs are actually easier to find funding for but, YOU MUST HAVE the credentials and qualifications to operate a “special needs” school. Be specific about special needs…physical disabilities, mental disabilities, learning disabilities, whatever the disability.
However, don’t give up just yet.
There is a group of retired business people (from ALL businesses including schools) that will look over your business plan, advise you where you CAN get funding, what to expect if the plan goes wrong and how to correct it before it’s to late, also how to improve on your plan. Anyone in business will tell you, WITHOUT a business plan 9 out of 10 businesses will fail within the first year.
Look in you local yellow pages or B-B listings (and, of course the internet) for these types of organizations.
Also, government grant money is available for more businesses, private or otherwise, schools, and a lot more. Check on the internet but be careful they are not just after your money. ASK QUESTIONS as to what these grants offer and what they expect from you for their money. (GRANT money is FREE, you do not pay it back) LOANS you pay back. Check out private foundations that give grants specifically for private schools.
Beginning any business always takes careful planning and research. Research how other private schools began. Research, research, research and double check the research.
KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU EXPECT to accomplish.

Ps. Renovating, taking over old buildings, reopening closed schools are less espensive and will give you an “edge” to get the school up and running. ANY building, or or new, can be modified to be “green”.

I know this is a lot of information and you have an excellent idea, just do the RESEARCH and learn everything you possibly can about the type of school you visualize.

MUCH GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

Green Tips Can I tip my black hair without bleaching?

Question by OMG birds!: Can I tip my black hair without bleaching?
I would like to have green tips, but bleaching my hair is out of the question. Is there a sort of “primer” I can apply so the [temparary] color can show?

Best answer:

Answer by Maddy Liz
I’m not sure about a ‘primer’ but why would you bleach your hair in the first place? Unless you are worried that the green would not show on your darker hair.

Eco Friendly Can someone give me websites for eco friendly crafts?

Question by xxxAnime-Crazyxxx: Can someone give me websites for eco friendly crafts?
I’m looking for a eco friendly craft that my club can do. I’m looking for websites that would list some craft ideas with pictures, so that we’ll be able to see the final product of it. And it would be much appreciated if the projects wouldn’t be time consuming. Thanks!

Recycling craft materials is the easiest way to be Eco-friendly while crafting.

For example, a milk carton birdhouse. It’s a craft, that recycles materials, and furthermore helps the earth by helping the birds. These can be decorated in many ways, not just how the one here is shown:

Here’s another one. Make a Solar Lamp. It’s pretty and useful, take a look:

Here are some great things you can make from recycled paper, like newspapers, magazines, and even toilet paper rolls:

Have any tin cans from soups, coffee, tuna, cat food, etc? Have a restaurant nearby (they often throw out these cans every day, you could ask for them.) Check out what you can make!

Drink soda? Keep the bottles. Check out what you can make with the bottoms:

And a slice from the middle can make this fun bracelet:

How beneficial (environmentally, economically, globally) is green vehicles, compared to the standard car?

The history to how green cars came about.

If you have the stretch, you could write a persuasive piece, discussing why I should buy one…because right now..Im not convinced.

Lime Green Living Room What should I do with my room?

Question by ..rae..♥: What should I do with my room?
The problem is, I can’t pick a style or theme or whatever you want to call it. My walls were supposed to be painted lime green, but I picked a lighter shade than I thought so they’re like a light lime green.

I love both classic rock :) and country music, & music is HUGE to me. I live in Kansas & I love it, I guess I’m a bit of a country girl. You could say I’m a tomboy.. So absolutely NO frilly or pink princess stuff. 2 of my favorite colors are red and black, but I don’t know how to put those with green walls.

Oh and just a note: I have a dog and 3 cats, so a mainly black bedspread will turn into a gray/black/white/orange bedspread within minutes of putting it on my bed. :)

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Oh and I also love the beach, if that helps any. Great ideas and websites, thanks! Keep em coming!
I also have a pretty small room, so anything that maximizes space helps!

Answer by heartcore
well maybe putting up posters of your favorite artists on the walls will be cool.
