The Environmental Protection Agency wants you to learn the three “R’s” when it comes to your trash. Those three words are very important if you want to continue living on a clean planet and one that is not overflowing with yesterday’s garbage.
If you live in the foggiest part of New England, a solar installation might not be my first suggestion. If you were however to move to Arizona, this becomes an economics conversation, as well as a green one. Arizona has an abundant resource that makes it a 21st century goldmine: sunlight. While I personally have not done the math, I can assure you that almost every resident of the great state could benefit financially from some sort of solar power installation. The best part is that it is good for the environment, good for the families, good for electrical grid security and for the economy. As home solar installation prices continue to get lower, more and more Americans will turn to themselves for their home energy needs.

Anthropologists have documented the modern bed bug outbreak back to the Sydney games. Tens of thousands of people living in close proximity and then all leaving back to their corner of the world caused the bugs to spread like a virus. At first it was mainly hotels that had the biggest problem, since they constantly see an occupancy turnover. If you’re staying in a hotel, it is smart to check the box spring, behind the headboard and inside the dresser drawers for signs of bugs. If you can pull the dresser away from the wall, that is a good place to check as well. Proper bed bug control starts with ensuring you never bring the bugs home with you in the first place. Call the experts at Gulfstream Radon Testing if you find a bug in your home. The sooner you act, the better.
Much to the surprise of most folks, the bed bugs that appeared in songs, fairy tales and creepy bedtime sayings never really went away. They were a huge problem in the Middle Ages and even right up through the industrial revolution but with proper cleaning, central heating and other modern amenities, the threat petered out in most Western countries. It wasn’t until the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games that bed bugs exploded back onto the national stage.
But the main drawback to this system is that it took up to 24 hours to kill bedbugs, and up to 36 hours to kill their eggs. They say they are now working to adapt the system to kill bed bugs even faster and more effectively.
Our clothing is inundated with chemicals too. Our blankets and sheets, and even our pajamas are made from chemicals. So not only are we eating chemicals, but we’re breathing them in too. And on top of that, the laundry soap and shampoo we use everyday are full of chemicals. So we wash our clothes in chemicals, and lather up our hair with it. We can at least lower the chemical use by cutting back on our laundry soap and shampoo use, by using only half the amount you normally use, that would be of some help. Green environment online go can help you with useful information on all of these concerns, our planet is counting on you!
