    What are some things you have done to 'Go Green?'

    Recycle more? Use less water? WHAT have you noticed with your change?

    Hello again..!
    Nice question...
    Today the most important thing is to generate awareness and to take actions against global warming..
    I am very strict at saving water.. I keep telling my mother and father to save water... Its the most priced possession we have today...

    I have also planted trees in college global awareness programe

    I've always recycled and tried to be pretty conservative with things like water and energy, but there will always be more I can do. One change I made a couple years ago was to completely quit buying water bottles. It's really easy to just go refill a reusable one, saves money, and there haven't been any downsides. I've also tried to start walking more instead of driving whenever possible, and it's been nice to be outside more and get some exercise! Next, I want to pay increasing attention to exclusively buying products with less and/or recyclable packaging.

    I recycle everything.  Public transportation.  Riding a bike.  Walking.  Reusable bags for shopping.

    Hi all

    I'm promoting an idea I had for a new concept in vertical axis wind turbine design.

    My design exploits the pressure gradient that forms when the free flow of the wind is obstructed by an obstacle: such as a natural feature of the landscape, building or specifically designed stand-alone structure.

    This makes the design extremely adaptable for it would allow for the production of electricity from the wind in the urban environment where it is most needed.

    I've put my ideas together in pdf format - with diagrams and text - that fully explains the working principles involved.

    The pdf is free to download - and there are no restrictions associated with my design. Anyone can take my ideas and develop them further if they so wish.

    The pdf can be obtained here:

    If you are truly serious about making a difference then please download this pdf and pass it on to anyone that you might think has the necessary skills (a degree in engineering or computer-aided-design, perhaps) to do something constructive with it.

    All the best.

    My house's energy usage is partially solar powered by a 4.8 kw solar pv system. Shopping for a new car and strongly considering an all electric vehicle... again, solar on the roof of my house, then part of the car would be charged by clean electrons. Ride a bike as often as possible. Recycle. And everything else I can.

    And of course, not wasting water and electricity. And I guess, in order to notice any change, we have to convince our friends and family members to do the same.

    Take public transportation, changed my light bulbs to the energy efficient ones... that's pretty much it

    I eat 100 percent organic. I grow my garden ..... I hate plastic. I use my stainless steel water bottle and reusable bags. I don't use a bag at all if I am buying a few things. I carpool when possible..... And make my own compost.
