All of us wanted to have green and fresh looking surroundings. However, many of us decided not to have it because of the need in time and the cost for the maintenance it may need. However, with New Grass, this is not a problem anymore because traditional sod grass will now be replaced with artificial lawn. The new grass will give you the same comfort and beauty as the traditional sod grass does. In addition to that, the new grass will drastically cut your water bill. With the use of the new grass, you will not only experience a green environment but also, it will keep money on your pocket with water bill you have saved.

Ninety percent water and ten ethanol or alcohol is the fuel source for the Horizon. The solution is just like of vodka, wherein the Horizon fuel cell kit directly converts ethanol to electricity free from noise and combustion. This device has the ability to run for day’s non-stop. In the next years to come, this device may have the chance to replace the traditional way of charging or electronic devices like our cell phone, iPods, mp3 players, and more. With its price of $99.00, I guess it’s already worth it since it will let us save from electricity in the long run.

Recycling your milk containers is a good way of doing your part in saving the earth, and making it an attractive table lamp and lantern is another benefit that we can get.

Eco luxury hotel in a quarry. Building a hotel in a quarry is such a great idea for an architect. Nobody wants to use areas that have been destroyed already by humans. However, the firm Atkins didn’t think it this way. In fact, they positively designed the proposed Songjiang Hotel that will be placed in a 100-meter-deep quarry. Another great feature with the hotel is that it will use geothermal energy to power up its electrical supply and heating system. Aside the geothermal energy, the quarry itself is also a good source of heat control and shelter from the environment. With its waterfalls and underwater aquarium, there’s no doubt that it can be the next hottest tourist destination in China.
Eco friendly furnitures by NaturesCast are manufactured with the use of dry leaves, dead twigs and barks from the wonderful forest of Compostela in Cebu City. With the intention of recycling the loads of garbage they have in their community, Catherine, a co owner of Nature Cast together with Pete, decided to think of some ways to make use of those garbage they have and then came with these contemporary, sleek, elegant and eco-friendly products. Their furniture line is perfect for modern homes, especially for those who have toddlers that tend to mess out anywhere. I find it safe enough since it is not made of fabric.
