ECo Homes

Eco housing รข€“ Natural Way of living




Author: Mel C
More eco housing options become available throughout the world every on a regular basis. The interest in eco housing comes from the growing awareness that we should preserve our habitat. With special attention given to the global warming effect, the media and environmental groups state that it is time to make some changes. We should all go a bit greener and that is why eco housing has become so popular and its popularity is still growing.


Because natural products are used to build these homes instead of the toxic and wasteful products used for regular housing one step has been made to preserve nature. Eco houses are not only better because they are made from natural products which are made in a process that is as harmless possible for the nature, they are developed in a way to do less harm to nature on the long run. Some options like efficient boilers, solar panels and energy, wind energy, heat pumps, proper isolation and other possibilities help in providing the eco houses with energy and heat while doing less harm to nature. Eco housing will also help to reduce some of your bills like the energy bill

Going Green: Green Living is Easier Than We Think



When we discuss the environment, as with any topic, there are as many opinions as people and some will take their points to the extreme- either extreme.


The true need is for each of us to understand that we are borrowing the space we have here on earth for but a short time. When we borrow something, should we not be responsible and do our best to return it in the same or better condition in which we received it? We would expect that of a neighbor who borrowed a tool would we not?

The solution is in learning how to coexist with and "re"learn how to take care of and respect the things of this earth. Let us find ways to teach each other alternative methods for working with nature.

My grandpa was a farmer and my grandma, being part American Indian, was inherently a naturalist. When I was a young girl it was their guidance that taught me things like; garlic and marigolds planted with the crops kept the bugs from "eatin' everything 'afore we get it to the kitchen". And of course Grandma would insist that it was the peppermint she had planted 'round the outside that kept the bugs from goin' in the house. There were no pesticides to be found on the farm but the vegetables and the flower gardens always produced in abundance.

She always said: God didn't put anything here by accident. He gave us everything we need. My grandmother knew how to use almost every plant or weed that grew in the Midwest. It's those little bits of knowledge that I treasure most, like; 'If you find poison ivy you can also grab the cure right from the ground (Spotted forget-me-not) normally not too far off', or that steaming your head in bayberry leaves will kick out the nastiest of colds, or that vanilla is a good insect repellent, and the list goes on. Today, I realize I should have paid much closer attention.

I am not an extremist and I am not the greenest. I do respect the land and space that I borrow and try to be conscious of my behavior. There are things I don't do because of cost, there I things I don't do because of necessity (like trying to earn a living) or because I do enjoy some of the little luxuries of modern day like watching a little TV before bed, but I am mindful of what I do.

We DO compost our kitchen scraps, we DO plan vehicle trips to make every trip as effective and efficient as possible, we DO turn off the water while we brush our teeth and lots of other little things. We look for ways to do a better job of living green because it is the right thing to do. Most often living greener does not require a lot of effort, and frequently it even saves us some money; like the rain barrels we have used for years to water our vegetable garden and flowers.

I know barely a tenth of what my Grandma knew and she always was trying to learn more. Perhaps what we all need is a good teacher...

Eco Roofs





Eco Roofing.

Green Roofs - Positive Aspects of Renewable Roofing

Author: Zach Harrell

Eco-friendly roof programs seem extremely complex, don't they? You could be wondering how they get installed, or when they might be utilized. Then once again, what greenery actually grows on a roof? And you are in all probability wondering what exactly is all the fuss about.

The nitty gritty is that eco-friendly roofs are very great to the atmosphere. For the reason that plant stuff could be the top roof layer, rather then typical roofing materials, a lot of positive conditions are made. Listed below are some of them:

Roof rainwater is absorbed by the facilities which serve as fantastic water collectors. This really is excellent for storm rainwater management. Rather then the rainwater getting a issue as to exactly where it will drain to, very much of it goes immediately for the plant roots where it really is utilized. The minor that does drain away does so slowly. A lesser amount of water runoff indicates fewer erosion and a lesser amount of pollution.

The crops absorb and retain roof heat, releasing it into the environment as temperatures coo. This keeps the interior of buildings and properties cooler, lowering air conditioning wants and expenses.

Alternative roofs extend the existence of the roof. There may be much less debris damage. There can be much less roof expansion and contraction from temperature modifications. Some roofs with green roof development can last 5 decades. These eco-roofs develop new wildlife habitats. Bugs and birds are drawn to living roofs.

Germany has been utilizing alternative roofs for over 35 years, and now lots of U.S. cities are promoting efficient roofs.

Green roofs are developed in layers. Diverse applications need different alternative roof building. Some are a lot more light fat, when other people are more of a mid fat. Furthermore, you will discover actual roof tops with additional intricate building capable to help trees. Normally even though, the layers of the renewable roof program would contain crops, filter fabric, drain, growing medium, insulation, root barrier, plus a waterproof membrane. As mentioned this is usually different for several situations.

Renewable roofs usually don't require irrigation. If some is required, nonetheless, the water need to be delivered immediately towards the roots. Both flat roofs and those which are sloped can accommodate green roof methods. There's a maximum slope for pitched roofs.

The appearance of green rooftops for residential and commercial applications significantly improves the aesthetics of our cities and towns. As I looked out my upper floor window the other day, I couldn't support pondering how nice it is to appear at plants and greenery as an alternative of asphalt and shingle. Likewise, in urban locations, the upper view landscapes would be greatly improved.

Internet in the home.

Far from the Madding Crowd, Satellite Internet Is King

Author: Joseph Hildebrandt

Far from the Madding Crowd, Satellite Internet Is King

When you live far from everything—even from your nearest neighbor—you are likely not to have access to many of the luxuries of modern technology which dominate life in the urban centers of our 21st century world.  It is very difficult for such people to feel like they are fully incorporated into the modern world, yet thanks to satellite technology a large part of that technological gap can be broached.  The most important of all modern technologies, high speed internet, is accessible for people in even the most far-off locales thanks to the fact that satellite internet providers are able to cover pretty much every single square mile of the United States (and the majority of the planet for that matter) without exception.  It’s a fact which residents of the remoter parts of the country are very appreciative of, and which is the principal reason for the tremendous growth of the satellite industry across the country and the wider world.

Satellite internet companies are benefited by one crucial factor: that even people that live far from the madding crowd need to have access to a high speed internet connection.  There is a widespread belief among people living in more urban/suburban parts of the country that high speed internet access is only necessary for those that live a lifestyle similar to theirs, yet nothing could be more untrue.  Why wouldn’t people in remote settings need to have access to high speed internet?  They have jobs to do and companies to manage and therefore they need to have access to the latest information and to market trends just as any businessperson in urban America.  They have family distributed across the country in most cases (even more so than urban residents usually) and therefore need a cheap and effective way of communicating with such people.  All in all, there is every reason for such people to need high speed internet and that is what the satellite internet industry has relied upon in order to obtain the spectacular growth it is exhibiting at present.

Satellite internet, of course, doesn’t just offer people in remote setting any old kind of internet access; at this point, satellite providers are offering cutting-edge technology that opens the door to some of the fastest download speeds that any internet user could dream of, whether they live in a remote community or not.  Unlike the slow satellite speeds of yesteryear, today satellite internet companies are offering speeds that are coming incredibly close to those of the best cable providers in the big cities.  A decade or two ago the difference between a satellite connection and a cable connection was absolutely astronomical, but not any more; these days, it’s a difference of a few 100 Kbps or a meg at most, more than compensated for by the fact that a satellite service can be had from pretty much anywhere while a cable service is only available within the reach of the cable grids themselves…yet another reason why satellite is doing so well on the market at present.

Try for yourself and see how much good a satellite internet connection could do for you.  Be sure to sign up with Hughes Net and discover the very best the satellite industry has to offer!
