Employee Carpooling Tell Your Employers Green Trends

Employee Carpooling by Comovee

One company has the responsible solution for employers!


The Dilemma:   It always bothersome in large companies to see so many people working the same schedule, coming from similiar parts of the city, each driving separately, wasting gas and killing the environment with their car emissions.  Although curious that these folks may not normally come up with the idea to perhaps drive together even though they may travel the same routes, to and from work.  Unless of course, someone put the notion into their head to force their hand in becoming a little bit greener….but who?

The Solution:  How about their employer offering a service such as this!  One may ask, how?  Now there’s a solution for companies to help their employees get to work in the name of green.  Employee Carpooling, what a great idea.  Thanks to Comovee Enterprise, who has thoroughly thought out the on-demand carpooling solution for companies!  They now allow employers to foster ridesharing among colleagues.  This process also features “business trip management” to share rides to common business destinations.

Imagine that, the employers can go through Comovee for this service and then take all the credit of being a “green company.”  This product is clearly environmentally friendly and the employer will obtain kudos in the community by helping their employees get to work . This will foster employee productivity by being a perk, and more people will want to work for the company in the long run. Expenses for parking are saved by the company and the employee – one saved parking spot saves up to $300 per month. Many companies now split the cost of parking in garages with their employees.

At Comovee you can figure out just how much you will save per year, based on how many employees you have.  Employees, tell your boss about this great idea. Tell them you would like to be a greener place to work.  Carpooling to work protects the environment by saving CO2, not to mention  it saves both gas costs and parking expenses!

Recycling Old Trophies Trophy Recycling

Vintage Trophies Upcycled

Mency’s team recycled over 100 trophies and made them into 40 functional pieces of art.

Do you have tons of old trophies that you can’t seem to part with? Collecting dust and the thought of giving them to the local goodwill makes you cringe, because you know no one in their right mind is going to buy an old trophy. They will just end up in the landfill. So now what?

Believe it or not some eco friendly people are using them in place of buying new mass produced trophies.  Take artist Ira Mency, who fashioned over 40 new trophies or a BBQ Contest in Virginia, she and her art group rebuilt out of 100 old trophies..  The artist remarked, “We got them donated from everywhere, old bowling, soccer, and softball….we took them apart, refurbished them and changed the toppers to pigs. A little artwork and decoupage and we were on our way. It was a lot harder and took a lot longer than buying new, but we did something good for the environment.  The old toppers we made into wine corks and sent them hope with the kids that helped us transform them.”

Mency lives in Baltimore but works in Pennsylvania, so she will pick up your trophies if you are within that regional area. Contact her at 410-908-9241 or read the deals on Trophy Recycling on her blog.  She says, “You can look up Earth411 to see who may take trophies in your area.  A lot of artists may use the parts in mixed media work, repurposing the marble stones or toppers for craft projects. Put them on Freecycle and you never know what will happen. ”

 

Superfoods Alternatives Help Fight Cancer

Weighing in on green cancer treatments

It’s time to weigh in on GREEN cancer Protocols.

There is no cure for cancer. That’s what they tell us. They say you need chemo, radiation and pills. And more treatments and more pills. Big pharma. Big more in the drugs, big money in the treatment. The research.  Where the heck is the cure?  Oh, right, cancer is population control. I forgot.

PH – Baking Soda?

According to this guy’s story  he claims having Stage V cancer he upped his PH so high he was declared cancer free. I just read how a grant was given to research sodium bicarbonate in a breast cancer study (that’s baking soda.)  Say what? Using regular old molasses and arm and hammer baking soda. We can’t say for sure this is a cure, (big brother is always watching)  but we can say it’s some form of cancer prevention for sure…

Organic Coffee?

Then you have the coffee enema guy that got kicked off line with his results and proof positive that his version of the therapy worked. I think he is now closed down and even Wikipedia tells you coffee enemas are no good.  Whisper Whisper. Talk to SA White’s coffee in Canada. The Canadian medical association doesn’t deter you from using them in any kind of liver detox protocol.  What do they know that US doctors doesn’t want you to know?  Supposedly the Gershon therapy was retested and revisited to find out it was a crock–?  Then why is it  this guy could not shake HEP B after contracting it (he could never prove where but it was said a bad trip to the dentist dirty tools)  using organic coffee shade grown coffee cured him in 4 days.  He had to order shade grown organic beans from Canada, have his wife assist in a Coffee enema, and within 4 days the jaundice was gone and he was pronounced immune to HEP B.   Okay, so maybe this is not a cure, but it proves real guys may break down and get enemas.

Superfoods.

Here is an interesting article on how superfoods help fight cancer.    

As for folks over at Island Superfoods, they are a firm believer in drink it up and using nature’s means to prevent and treat common illness from obesity to joint pain.  Perhaps just really there are key ingredients in nature here to help us ward off all this evili. Cure cancer? Maybe not according to this girl who did everything possible for her dog, but superfoods actually helped in allowing him to live a happy and healthy quality of life.    Last check the dog was already outliving his lifespan.

Nature Knows.

So what is that nature knows that we do not? They give us the elements, supplements, flowers, fruits, vegetables, vitamins and bioflavinoids we need to live healthy. Perhaps it’s because of us humans that we are prone to so much disease.

Griego Skinny Wraps It Works

Belly Dance Get Up on Amazon may be what you need after using It Works! products

Perhaps you’ve seen all these advertisements online and customer testimonials by the products by the company, It Works! In case you don’t know, this company started small and grew real big real fast by it’s customers falling in love with it’s organic and natural herbal products–then becoming distributors. Call it grassroots, or word of mouth, but we did some investigating.

On Facebook we found the page of GriegoSkinnyWraps. Their page is loaded with client “thank you’s” so we asked them what the deal was.  They said, “We have all herbal no synthetic body care, nutrition , and weight loss supplements. ” They went on to tell us they too were skeptical, until they used the products, got hooked by the fact they worked, and then became distributors. They sell by word of mouth, to family and friends, and through their Facebook page.

We asked what is up with this miracle body wrap? What is it? Why does it work?

They said, ” The body wrap is our flagship product and our best seller! It has an herbal based cream on it that tones, tightens, firms and causes inch loss, gets rid of cellulite and stretch marks in as little as 45 minutes it starts working. This is NOT a water loss wrap – which are terrible and don’t last. These wraps detox as deeply as in to the fat cells. These are a FIRST TO MARKET product that truly works and results last 2-6 months even without doing anything to maintain them. They work. Our other products include our favorite – Greens – 1 tsp = 8 servings of fruit and veggies – detoxes, alkalizes the body, gives natural energy.”

The fact we like It Works! is that they are using green herbal supplements, natural ingredients, and multi-level word of mouth marketing via happy customers. If that doesn’t say “green” I don’t know what does.

10 Tips for Going Greener in the Home

Island Picnic on Etsy Eco Friendly Sandwich Bags

Photo: IslandPicnic on Etsy offers these great reusable organic cotton sandwich bags, get rid of those plastic bags forever!

Let’s say you want to get into the “green thing” but have no idea where to start? Here are some simple ways you can go greener in the home.

1. Start a can for recycling. Not only will you see your regular trash cut down, but recycling will help the environment so these items don’t end up in landfills.  In case you are new at this, you should rinse out your cans before tossing them in.

2. Collect your children’s broken toys into a box, then advertise them on Craiglist free to an assemblage artist, who may recycle the parts into sculpture rather than end up in the landfill.

3. Instead of plastic bags in the kid’s lunch use washable eco material bags that you can reuse.  You can find a bunch on Etsy and you can start here at Island Picnic.

4.  Turn out the lights in other rooms when you are not using, and conserve energy when you can.

5.  Making small changes in your home such as upping the heat to kick on a few degrees, and lowering the temperature of the hot water heater will also help.

6. Air dry your clothes on a line outside when you can. You will be happy they smell fresh too, and just doing this half of the time will reduce your electricity bill.

7. If you have a garden, invest in a compost bin and start composting your food scraps. You won’t have to buy soil next year and you will have a way to supercharge your veggies.

8.  Along those same lines you may wish to start a rain barrel, to self feed the garden so you won’t have to water it.

9.  Get your children into recycling by having a recycled crafts night, where they make cards for someone’s birthday out of old magazines, glue and recycled junk mail.  Here is a great link on DIY greeting cards.

10.  Get a free quote on alternative energy for your home. As crazy as it may sound, you can get low cost solar panels which will save you up to 70% on your utility bills, easily paying for themselves in a year or two. Many people are scared to look into these type of things, but what they don’t realize is with the growing popularity of new green energy, supply vs demand are making them more affordable.

There are just a few tips on living green and going greener in your every day life. Just about everything you do if you make small changes these will build up over time. What are you doing to make a better world years from now?

Energy Star Appliance

Energy Star this. Energy Star that.  There’s no doubt that modern appliances are made “more eco friendly” than older ones. Supposedly you save on your electric bill. New refrigerant is used–not the harmful stuff that hurts the ozone when released.  They sure cost a lot. They sure are pretty.   Everyone has heard of  going greener, but when should you decide the best for your old appliance ?

One company in Los Angeles, Active Appliance may have some input.  “We fix broken appliances so there is less disposed appliances in the landfills.. We implement energy saving methods at houses we service.”

Something to think about…scrap metal, or can you use it for a few more years?
