    Hi Zach! I'm new to greener people, and I think it's awesome...so many great ideas for living more sustainably. I work with a site called earthbongo, which is a project sharing site where people can create and share micro-projects to make the world better. Many of our projects are about green living, from packing a waste-free lunch for your kids to using less shampoo. We would love to have you share some of your ideas as projects on our site! I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Also, a question--is it okay to post occasional links to earthbongo projects, or would that be considered spam?

    Thanks so much!!

    Hi Zach! I'm a brand new member to greener people and I'm really digging the site! Very glad I joined. I do have a question, I'm looking for some tips when it comes to grocery shopping greener. Although my city does have a farmers market every Saturday, I do not have access to any places like Whole Foods or a Fresh Market. My only option is the dreaded Wal-Mart. Do you know of any info that might be helpful?
    Please and thank you!

    Hey Zach. I am new to this site. I wanted to ask a question about posting in the forums. If I've written an article (outside of Greener People) and want to share it in the forums, am I allowed to post a link to it? Its not selling a product but I still wasn't sure. I just got here....I don't need to get kicked off that quick!! Thanks! ReuseItAll

    Hello, I'm new to this site. Can you direct me to a discussion on composting toilets?

    I will like to introduce a new and innovative 'eating green' program. I started my working life as a civil engineer and then morphed into a software engineer, author, and now to management consultant, my hobby is nutritious cooking. At the start of 2007, I began writing a food column for three regional newspapers and recently began wondering how I could combine my professional experience with advancing the cause of living a more green life. The result is the FamilyGreenSurvival program, Family Green Survival, designed to create a deep personal commitment to ‘green living' and to develop empathy for the world's low income and poor population.

    I will like to have the opportunity to discuss this program with your appropriate writer/editor for posting on your website. With best regards, Gopal.

    Hey Zach,

    Just checking in after a long absence. I've been busy recreating my own site and teaching - have more time in the summer. Anyway, it looks like your forum is doing well over here. Congratulations on a great job with this.

    Zach,
    I would like to get a soap nuts forum started on our website, but do not have a clue where to begin. Can you offer any guidance?

    Zach, I am a green builder in california. Building has just about stopped. My current project has stagnated and will hopefully be on track again soon. In the mean time we have been giving tours of our home and teaching people how to go green to save money. Our home will be the greenest in the state and we want to use it as a Green Resource Center, do you have any thoughts on how I can get more publicity for my project. And how can I get my project on your greener people website.reese

    That's understandable, I thought it was a scam as well at first. I have a neighbor who is going to heat his house with a home made water-to-hydrogen system this winter.....the technology exists and is very simple. If I had the time, I would rig up a car to run on it....which has already been done. Check out the listings in the 'hydrogen category'....there are some videos you should check out. Made a believer out of me.

    Hey Zach, i'm liking the Marketplace and Blog sections. I am planning to write some stuff about earth-list....how i got into it and what not(if thats okay).
    Also, i noticed you mentioned 'no water to gas' related stuff. Are you not a believer in the potential this technology has or are these guys just hitting you up with alot of spam? I have to admit, after looking into it, i think this just might be the future of energy and transportation.

What does green mean to you?

by zach on 06-17-2010 at 09:21 AM
This is a new video by earthsense - Strength in Numbers asking people what green means to them. It's interesting to hear what other people think of as green and how completely different each persons view is.

My new house. = My new energy efficiency project.

by zach on 03-25-2010 at 08:15 AM
As many of the regulars to this site probably already know. I've moved my family from Chicago to New Hampshire. We bought an old Cape Cod that needed some work, especially in the area of energy efficiency. The previous owner was using 1800 gallons of heating oil per year and at least two full cords of wood, probably more to heat the house. I've been taking pictures along the way and will post what I've done and the progress I've made once I get a little more settled in.

Here's the post about the approach I'm taking:

We've also applied for an energy efficiency program through the local utility that starts

Google Power Meter Project

by zach on 04-14-2009 at 11:45 AM
I was just reading about the Google Power Meter project. Basically it allows you to see your energy consumption using meters on your appliances in near real time. The idea is that if you can measure your power consumption and see how and when you are using the most power then you have the ability to make small changes that can greatly reduce your power consumption.

Green Website Certification

Just wanted to throw this out on my blog too... Looking for some feedback, thought, etc..

That's great but the problem with this is that the power consumption of that that server actually only accounts for a very, very small portion of the power consumed by a web hosting company. There's networking equipment, backup servers, heating and cooling the data center, lighting the data center,

Couple of cool sites I found on Stumble Upon.

by zach on 08-15-2008 at 09:15 PM
I thought this was pretty cool. A group of gardeners the that take over urban places to do their gardening. Our cities would look a lot nicer if there were more people doing this. And the added vegetation probably help filter some of the pollutants out of the air and water.

Here's the link: http://www.guerrillagardening.org/

This site has a great tag line, "real food, real farmers, real community" and they a locator for find local farmers and farmers markets in your area.

Here's the link: http://www.localharvest.org/

I find a lot of great sites and info on Stumble Upon. You can find me on SU at: http://greenerpeople.stumbleupon.com/
