Gardens Inside/ Outside and Hoopdomes.We can help you start and maintain a garden year-round to grow yummy herbs and veggies -- inside or outside. Container, hoopdomes, hoophouse and pyramid gardens are vital and good for the biosphere. Contact us for help with your garden today.
Xeriscaping/ Landscaping.We offer human powered, high quality landscaping, xeriscaping and lawn services to save our planet's water, air and land. Get a beautiful yard while reducing fertilizer pollution, protecting life and our climate.
Stylish & Stealthy Clothes Lines.We will help you put up a sweet looking outside or inside clothesline that is far more ecological than using a clothes dryer. It takes 8 or more power plants to run US clothes dryers. We can also install filters on conventional clothes dryers to re-route heat back into your house.
Composting Inside/ Outside.We can help you setup a snazzy compost bin that helps protect the climate, produces fertilizer and is a fun home for earthworms and rolly pollies. Landfills create methane - a major greenhouse gas - when yard trimmings, fruit and vegetable food decompose.
Organic & Local Food.We can help you find groovy organic farmers to reduce the pesticides on your food, protect rivers and lakes, save wildlife and reduce global warming. We will connect you with a local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) cooperative too.
Water Conservation.We can install toilet bowel flush control retrofits or low-flush toilets that are eco smart. Let's put in low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucet aerators, water filters and timers. We can fix those drippers too.
Responsible Investing.We can recommend environmental non-profit organizations to contribute to or reserve assets for -- in exchange for tax perks. We can also recommend our favorite green investment funds that focus on ecological commitment.
Home & Appliance Coil Cleaning.We will clean your refrigerator and freezer coils, and clothes dryer ducts, to save lots of energy and improve indoor air. Insulating refrigerator sides on old models is crucial too. We can make your home spiffy clean with the eco and healthy cleaning supplies we use.
Window/ Door/ Water Heater/ Fridge Insulation.To insulate windows and doors we can install clear plastic or plexi double pane inserts, and do caulking and stripping to help keep your home cozy. Nice looking magnetic blankets for refrigerators and water heaters are another eco upgrade.
Eco Audits, Repairs, Upgrades & Remodels.We offer energy audits to help identify cost effective ways to power up your home's energy efficiency - including a structural energy efficiency scan. For big repairs and upgrades, we will introduce you to our favorite eco contractors and energy upgrade pros.
Eco Home Tricks & Tips.We can help you buy and install energy-efficient appliances, automatic timers, movement sensors, light switch dimmers and programmable thermostats. Sign up with our favorite renewable energy companies too.
Tips: Check oven and refrigerator gaskets. Avoid preheating ovens. Clothes lines are far more eco than gas and electric clothes dryers. Clear the lint filters. LED lights can save $40/yr. Set water heater at 120-130F, refrigerator at 37F, freezer at 3F.
Eco Car & Airline Talk.We can help you offset your car and airline carbon footprint via inexpensive carbon credits. We can refer you to ecological car repair services, car upgrades, or help permanently retire an older polluting car.
Tips: Check tire air pressure, get regular tune-ups and change car oil to save 10%/yr. We can also help you find ways to drive less.
Eco Teams & Organizations.We can help you pick an excellent environmental organization to support. Examples include The Sierra Club, EDF, Nature Conservancy and XOEarth.
