Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
MLK
About Me:
The word “green” has evolved into much more than a reference to a color. It is beginning to convey a way of living, a state of technology and ultimately a point of harmony between modern humanity and our natural world. The word “renaissance” means rebirth and relates to arts and sciences. The effects of these events generally have profound changes on a society. Technology today is growing in a green direction and it is undeniable that all aspects of our modern lives are greatly influenced more and more by new technology. Welcome to Green Renaissance.

This may not be new news, but it really does get one thinking. 20% more is a lot of money if you think about the markets for disposable products such as soda bottles and plastic bags. If we can start using biodegradeable plastics it would be very feasible considering this study.

Green Renaissance Sustainable Home and Business Technologies

Hello Wonderful Earth People



Word of the Day: Thermosyphon- the equilibrium height of air within a contained area is proportional to the size ratio of a particle, which is effectively proportional to the heat. Thus the heat of air is proportional to the height within a contained area.

Thermosyphon= hot big float : cool small sink





We were at the Greener Homes and Gardens Expo and it was pretty awesome!

I do believe that if more and more people became green, this planet could actually mend itself. I believe in recycling and reusing. I buy most products second hand, or through co-ops and thrift stores. There is an abundance of things to be had at these stores, and the sooner people relize this the better the planet will be. HAPPY SPRING TO YOU!!!
