Sustainable buildings bring great advantages especially to those who want to save from energy, gas, lessen carbon emission and more earth saving concerns. More and more people are now aiming for self-sustainable infrastructures just like the architects Herzog and de Meuron who have presented their design for a triangular building in the Porte de Versailles area of Paris, France. The purpose of the triangular design is to prevent structure from casting shadows on adjacent buildings and will eventually allow generating an optimum solar and winding power. This building is not simply just a modern building, but it will help neighboring structures to have enough space for air and light as the building continues to get higher.
Lawn mowers are just another machine that contributes a lot to carbon emission. In addition, mowers are also loud an irritating to the ears.

But this time around, carbon and noise will never be a problem anymore because James Taylor Peterson has created the eco-friendly Neutron Battery-Powered Mower. This tool can run on a 24 volt battery, and can mow for up to and hour after a single charge. In addition to that, you will now be free form spark, plugs, air filters, pull cords, and toxic gases.
