I have had this idea for some time now. Just I don't have the physical strength that it would take, nor the money to implement this plan. Although I could oversee it and design it. I thought of it as a business, when I had a lawncare business years ago. I stumbled across a website, actually I Googled it...'Rooftop Gardens'. I had seen one on tv where the man lived in NYC and had a huge garden on his apartment buidling roof. Anyway, the pictures of them alone inspired me to take it one step further. Businesses. Wouldn't it be nice to have a private rooftop for your employees to take breaks. Nothing elaborate, just some fresh air, outside, not being cooped up in a cubicle or office all day. A few small trees, a bench or some lounge chairs...a 'getaway' place from work. Plants = Good environment+employee benefits = happier, healthier workers = increase of work production. It's a win-win situation. No swim pool, but would still have that 'full-spa' or hotel-like effect, even for just a little while. Perhaps it would not only increase work production, but employees working and striving for something besides just their daily routine of working...they could have office contests, or participation in plants, etc. If interested, reply to this comment, and maybe we could start out on a small scale and graduate up to more...depending on building sizes, permits and measurements and all the necessary details of such a project.

I have an idea on a method of manufacturing foresight that will add a new dimension of Recycling, called Cross Industry Parts Interchange. Please visit the page to read the short article. It involves looking at interchangeable parts in terms of redirecting them to other applications when their intended or useful life is exhausted in their intitial application. Read about it here: http://www.sprayallcorp.com/cipi.htm

Dear All, The green idea I would like to share with you guys is to use LED lights. I began to do so like several years ago and at the end of the day I have even launched small local company to help people to approach this technology. You can check on facebook: HELT LED LIGHTING. We can reduce the electricity bills up to 70% and I cut down the profits in order this technology can become high runner-implemented by the entire world. Go Green, Go HELT

I moved here a couple of months ago from California. Where are recycle drop off sites in this city? Okay, that was a hint and a question all in one! : ) One thing I do to cut down on power usage is- I bought a wardrobe rack and when I do laundry for my family of 4, I hang all t-shirts and anything else I can to dry. That way when I wash 4-5 loads of clothes a week, I only run the dryer 1-2 times. Not to mention it keeps your clothes newer for longer!! :)
