Green Products + Services

by Nikodemis

Choosing environmentally friendly, green and ecologically sound products and services goes with the sustainable lifestyle you are changing to. What’s more, it will save you money in the short term, save and boost your health in the long term, and as a bonus save the environment you live in too. The outcome?

Happiness…


  • Green DIY

Doing-it-yourself is probably the most environment friendly choice of living. It is an eco  alternative to consumerist default: instead of buying what you (think) you need, you make it yourself.

  • Green Kitchen

Simplicity is the name of the game. What could be easier than to compost your kitchen scraps and make your own super green nutrition for your pot plants, garden and veggie patch?

And what about household cleaners? Humans seem to be obsessed with cleaning. Which translates as killing – exterminating each and every living organism around us as if the microscopic creatures are specially created to harm us, and we are to defend ourselves against this sci-fi alien invasion…

Home schooling and un-schooling is the green way to go. Just as nature intended it. And this education is more often than not free.

  • Green Business

Starting an online business is one of the environment friendly ways to go green and generating an income at the same time.

Scams and junk sites abound, so be careful where you start online! Wealthy Affiliate is a good and trustworthy online college to learn the ropes, but you can also Google around, watch YouTube videos and simply learn by doing it. WIX and WordPress are good places also to go set up your domain.

Important part of any business is the SERVICE aspect – going green seriously means that we are in it together, and community is more important than individuality or at least has to balance the tables so we can work together to help our planet heal and become whole. Or, as poet, writer, philosopher, psychiatrist and biologist Ian McCallum says, it is not nature that needs healing, is us humans…

BIG Business: the vast amounts of energy required to run factories in the big industry boggles the mind.

So there is hope – check out the above presentation of Bio Waste Technologies as an example of really awesome ways to  convert your business’s waste into readily available compost and related energy sources.

You can also go see how this process called Pyrolysis works.
