Green Living Gifts What kind of potted plant will make a good gift?

Question by Adam B: What kind of potted plant will make a good gift?
I would like to buy a potted plant for my grandfather for Christmas. He lives in Phoenix and spends much of his time at home, and I think he would enjoy having a plant to take care of and enjoy. The plant would be kept either indoors (where there is a lot of sun) our outdoors on a partially-shaded terrace. I would like to get him an interesting/beautiful perennial that can live in a pot–he has no yard to transplant it into. What kind of plant would be good to get?

Green Solutions As a commercial architect what is your primary goal when designing a building envelope?

Question by Kitchen/Bath Designer: As a commercial architect what is your primary goal when designing a building envelope?
Apart from taking into consideration the clients needs do you feel that in todays environment it is necessary to present a “green” solution? Do you find that current “green” products do not provide the same design options as conventional products? What are your opinions on current design trends with regards to “green” vs. conventional products?

Best answer:

Answer by J.
Actually, the clients needs and wants dictate everything- as an architect you are just the hired gun to draw the building blueprints or diazos. You may influence the exterior appearance, but it still needs to meet the criteria of the people who hired you.

As for materials, they are going to vary widely, green product options just provide you more options. The makers of those products seek to produce profitably an item that will be accepted as a full replacement for the less green material, so it has to meet the same physical criteria. LEED certified insulation for example, if it meets the criteria of flamability and is adequate for use in an application, it’s performance as insulation in and of itself is no different than the non LEED item it replaces. Most often the difference is it just costs more.

The design dictates the materials used, not the other way around. Frank Lloyd Wright was a one off individual. In this world today, someone tries what he did with clients- he loses the clients. What he did with materials, that is another matter, but his weakness was he did not have a background in material science to know what the structural deficiencies were for “Falling Water” when it was being built (deficiencies noted in the restoration a number of years ago.) He tried to be innovative with materials; the Johnson Wax building is a perfect example. He was crippled by the limitations of some of the materials availble to him at the time.

Which is why today you hire structural engineers to go over designs.

Eco Friendly Gifts What should I get for my friend?

Question by Emily Mac: What should I get for my friend?
My friend is turning 13, and her party is going to be an eco-friendly type party. What should I get her? She’s not a real material girl. She doesn’t wear makeup, and the gift can’t be more than $ 25 dollars (times are kind of hard in my family right now). Suggestions of general ideas, instead of something specific (like a shirt with a certain picture on it) would be appreciated. Thanks!

Question by John Doe: Do you have any fund raiser ideas of ending local poverty?
me and a group of friends are trying to help in poverty in Bartlesville Oklahoma and we want to buy food to put in baskets for people who live in poverty. We have made a blog if you would like to check on our progress or just say anything… we just started today.

www.teensstoppoverty.blogspot.com

Post any ideas you may have to help us raise money for food for people in poverty.

Best answer:

Answer by Sweetness
Project Pocket Change- use clean milk jugs and collect peoples spare change, can be used / given to the utilities company to help pay for utilities that low income folks cant afford. Yard sale in which all monies made are contributed to the cause. Put on a play and charge perishable food items as entry fee. Ask local grocery stores if you can place a box in or around their store to collect food for your cause. People are already at the store they may pick up a couple items for you.

The site is meant to inform consumers of the dangers in their homes related to toxic chemicals, and offer them an economical green solution that has an upside of earning them an income.

But, as this is my first attempt at web building, I do not know if the site is informative enough, or easily navigated.

I would sincerely appreciate your input and if you have a site, post it here and I would be happy to do the same for you.

Eco Friendly Gifts How can my family and I go green, or eco friendly? Does any one have any tips?

Question by Jordan M: How can my family and I go green, or eco friendly? Does any one have any tips?
I keep hearing over and over again about global warming, and how it will soon affect all of us. I know to do simple things, like turn out lights after you use them, and conserve water, but I need some more tips. I think it would be great for the Earth, and for family bonding, if my family were able to go green together. Are their any ways we could do this, that weren’t extremely time and money consuming? Thanks a lot!!

Best answer:

Answer by Julia <3 Music
Well, you could always ride your bike to school, if you go to school or to work. There is also Earth Hour that you can participate in. This earth hour some family friends came over, we ate finger foods before Earth Hour started and then at Earth hour we used only rechargeable flashlights and candle lights. But, make sure that if you do do that the people that join you turn there lights out too. You can also buy that big blue bin and recycle a lot. My family goes through 2 full garbage bags each week. You can help improve with that because i think soon they are going to make you pay for each garbage bag. Also, have shorter showers to decrease your water bill and also be good to the environment at the same time. Try to also ride your bike or walk to do chores. I sometimes do that.

Green Modular Homes If you were to ask a family member to lend you money, how would you ask?

Question by huntinggirl25: If you were to ask a family member to lend you money, how would you ask?
So this particular family member has 4+ million in the bank. What we were hoping to ask was if they would help us to purchase a modular home in our area. They are selling for around $ 12,000 to 37,000 for 2-4 bedroom homes and they are not the old run down homes, they are newer modular homes. We want to ask if they will go into contract with us and loan us the money to buy the house and then make mortgage payments to them with interest over the next 5 years. (Say $ 20,000 would be around $ 330 a month for 5 years to pay off the loan, but we want to pay them 6-7% interest on it as well. But what we don’t know how to do is present it to them. This isn’t to flip a house, this is strictly to be able to own a home as opposed to renting and since our area was hit hard with housing problems and economic downfall, these places are selling for almost nothing. I would really like to be able to purchase something like this to live in. How would you present it to your family members if you were to ask them? It isn’t a question of money, they have it, but I still feel embarrassed asking.
We pay $ 1350/month in rent. So that never leaves us enough to save the money needed for a down payment on a home. But if they could help us out, we could pay they $ 1350 to them and own instead of rent, and it wouldn’t feel as if our money was going nowhere!
If there is any info you need to know, ask so I can fill it in and hopefully get the best answer I can.
They are very close, and very good, christian people. WE are a very tight nit family.
If it is a gift, do you pay taxes on it?
GCBP If I can pay a family member 6% why would I want to pay a lender 15%?
Landlord I dont know why you would assume I won’t pay them back. I am more then willing to pay them back with interest and I have more of the means to do it. I would just prefer to Pay them monthly then pay rent and get nowhere.
Landlord I dont know why you would assume I won’t pay them back. I am more then willing to pay them back with interest and I have more of the means to do it. I would just prefer to Pay them monthly then pay rent and get nowhere. I am not a leech, I have a full time job, as does my husband, and we work our asses off to pay rent and get food, even though it is none of your business. I was only asking how to present the idea to them. Just because you borrow from a bank doesn’t mean you are not a leech either.
And that is what the contract would be for. They can have it notarized if they want.

Question by : Why does Romney support murdering a child for the crimes of its parent?

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/244309-romney-camp-criticizes-akin-rape-comment

If you believe abortion is murder, as Romney and most Republicans do, why would you murder a child just because its father was a rapist?
I didn’t ask if YOU believe in the right to choose or Right to Life.
bdozen – he DID say that. He said he supports abortion (murdering a child) if the father raped the mother.

Green Walls Living Walls Q&A: I need tips on what color area rug/carpet runner to use in my living room.?

Question by Carolina: I need tips on what color area rug/carpet runner to use in my living room.?
The walls are gold. The sofa & loveseat: hunter green. The recliner is multi floral green,burgundy,mauve. The curtains are burgundy. The deco on the walls are floral with greens,burgundy,& tans. The floors are wood.
I need to use an area rug in the center of the sitting area and one long runner in the entrance into the hall.
Any suggestions on the color to go with? Thanks.

Answer by mortiicia3
Sounds like kind of a challenging hodge-podge and too many different things going on. I think you need something neutral so it doesn’t clash with everything else but complements it instead. It’s kind of hard for me to picture and I am not a fan of florals, but i would try to find something that picks up the existing burgundys and greens, which I think it would look nice against the color of the wood floor.

What do you think? Answer below!

Green Solutions How does the artificial trees (Treepods) release O2?

Question by Vítor: How does the artificial trees (Treepods) release O2?
Hello, I’m running a school project, which objective is to relate modern electronics inovations to cooperate with the enviroment, either reducing damage caused by industrial power consumption, damages to the enviroment, or replacing actual tecnlogical methods with more “green” solutions.
We’re adopting the Treepods, artificial trees that propose to absorb CO2 and release O2.
We were wondering how the Treepods work. We have researched on various websites, all mentined that they are able to absorb CO2 and release O2, but were not able to explain how the process really worked with better detail. I would appreciate if you were able to provide our reaserch with an answer, especially the CO2 -> O2 transformation.
Thank you in advance, and if possible, provide actual reference (It’s kinda important).

Best answer:

Answer by Ed
Partly due to the scarcity of information on the Internet, I think this is a hoax. It is true that trees give off carbon dioxide at night, but they take in more during the daytime than they give off at night. The tree uses the carbon to build the itself.

What would the treepod do with the carbon? I wouldn’t invest in the scheme.

Answer by johN p.
Unrelated to this question, but close. In our gift shop at work, they now carry small photo albums with fancy designs on them. They look like they’re made from scrap paper, but they’re actually made from elephant poop. (Honest. The store manager just showed them to me last Friday.)

Green Living Dallas The blooms are falling off of my tomato and eggplant plants and I cannot figure out why.?

Question by Daphaney: The blooms are falling off of my tomato and eggplant plants and I cannot figure out why.?
I live in Tx in the Dallas area and it has been very hot here(not sure if that could be a reason)

The plants look very healthy and are full of blooms and have been for weeks but nothing more happens, the blooms just fall off.

Best answer:

Answer by shiva40us
These plants will naturally lose their flowers as the fruit develops, but it they are dropping off without setting fruit it could be the hot weather or lack of water. Thoroughly water the plants, don’t just give them dribbles of water – and try to keep the area around them fairly humid.
