Do you have a small idea to make this world Green? Mention if you already use it.

My big greening idea is really small. I want to help households in reducing its carbon footprint. Simply by using more efficient lighting, cooling and windows. Budget all of this from ones annual energy spend.

The small acts I use to have a greener presence is to recycle every scrap of paper, even envelops that come in post.

Plus, I never travel to a place if the work can be done over the internet, like banking / shopping / meetings.

Curious for more small ideas that can have a large impact.

  • Jun 9 2012: I am buying a house in snowy mtns in Australia. I will be putting my old car (when rego runs out) in backyard. This will be my day lounge, so i do not have to heat house. Old cars in backyards get warm very quickly, i will still be able to use its two batteries to charge laptop,(solar panel on roof of car) and i will make a cuppa using a billy which you simply put a few leaves around and light.

    From the car i will have a view over the valley below, much better than sitting by a gas heater and watching garbage on tv.
