Green Living - HOW?

Very easy and low cost:
1) Become a member of
Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation!
and keep Earth beautiful!

You will get free advice, + green tips + solutions
and personal advice!
Membership starts at $1 (one) a month.
2) Switch 3 lights to compact fluorescent lights -- CFLs use approximately 75% less energy than incandescent lights. The emissions savings are based on the assumption that you are replacing 3, 75-watt bulbs that are operated 4 hours a day, 365 days a year.
3) Replace a porch light with a CFL -- CFLs use appr. 75% less energy than incandescent lights. The emissions savings are based on the assumption that you are replacing one, 75-watt bulb that is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

4) Turn your thermostat down 2 degrees / AC up 2 degrees -- U.S. households consume 183 billion kWh for air conditioning (1,710 kWh/year per household).About 57% of U.S. use natural gas as the main fuel for space heating. About 30% use electricity.

Households using electricity for space heating consume 3,524 kWh/year for space heating. Households using natural gas consume 55.4 million Btu/year for space heating. This means that households with electric heating use a total of 5,234 kWh/year for heating and cooling (3.5 tons CO2 emitted). Households with natural gas heating use 1,710 kWh/year for cooling and 55.4 million Btu/year for heating (total 4.4 tons CO2).

Adjusting your thermostat 2 degrees (up in summer, down in winter) can save 4%.

Programmable thermostat / AC -- U.S. households consume 184 billion kWh for air conditioning (1,710 kWh/year per household). Approximately 57% of U.S. households use natural gas as the main fuel for space heating. About 30% use electricity.

Would you like to work in a 'green' office?
A) Think about how much energy your office can save during work hours. Many people should realize that a lot of the electricity that we use in the office is sourced from the burning of fossil fuels to create it. By lessening electrical power use, we save on money and the amount of carbon being released into the atmosphere. Instead of turning on all the lights in the office all day long, try opening all the shades to enjoy the natural sunlight. This way you won't need to use the lights in well sun-lighted rooms. During cooler days, instead of using air conditioning, use electric fans. Or open windows if possible.
Always make sure power strips are turned off after everyone leaves the office. Plugged items still use up electricity even if gadgets and components are not turned on.

B)Think about recycling in your office by segregating cans, plastics, papers, and biodegradable stuff accordingly.
Reuse paper that have blank sides, for drafts and printing that doesn't require clean paper.
If you don't know recycling facilities, ask us - send an email for instructions how to properly treat your recyclables.
Think about if you really need bottled water! Provide a drinking station at the office with mugs and glasses instead of paper or plastic cups.

C)Think about your impact when you buy new office supply. There are office products that will help the environment. Do not buy supplies that are not vital to operations. Buy recycled paper, buy recycled ink for your printer, buy recycled laser cartridges. Buy environmentally-friendly products to help those companies who are concerned with the environment. When you support environmental causes it will benefit your company too.

D)Think about giving incentives to employees who take the public transport or who are carpooling. It saves money in gas and in parking fees, lower stress, furthers communication.

We think in some countries a Solar cooker is a great idea.
In many countries - as you can see in Haiti - people have cut all trees to have wood for the cooking stoves.
But with cutting the trees they destroy their and our children's future!
 a Solar cooker uses the power of the sun or solar energy to heat up your pot, so you can cook without electricity
Cooking with the sun


Insulate your home -- U.S. households consume 183 billion kWh for air conditioning (1,710 kWh/year per household). Approximately 57% of U.S. households use natural gas as the main fuel for space heating. About 30% use electricity. Fuel oil, kerosene or LPG and are not considered.

Households using electricity for space heating consume 3,524 kWh/year for space heating. Households using natural gas consume 55.4 million Btu/year for space heating.

This means that households with electric heating use a total of 5,234 kWh/year for heating and cooling (3.5 tons CO2 emitted). Households with natural gas heating use 1,710 kWh/year for cooling and 55.4 million Btu/year for heating (total 4.4 tons CO2).

Installing insulation and sealing leaks can save as much as 16%.

BSB green education online: with this panel you can heat your shower water with the sun with out using electricity - hot water heating with hot water panels is very efficient in states with a lot of sunshine
Solar hot water heating - a green solution

Air dry your clothes -- The U.S. uses 66 billion kWh per year to dry clothes.
Air drying rather than machine drying laundry three months every year would save 25% of this energy.

Set your water heater to 120�F -- About 40% of U.S. households use electricity for water heating. Households with electric water heaters use 2,552 kWh/year for water heating.

About 54% of U.S. households use natural gas for water heating. The average U.S. household uses 19,000 cf natural gas per year (19.7 million Btu).

There is 3-5% energy savings for each 10 degrees decrease. The typical default setting on a water heater is 140 degrees. Environmental Defense assumes a conservative savings of 3% per 10 degrees -- thus 6% savings for a 20 degree decrease.

Energy Star refrigerator -- Energy Star refrigerators use, on average, 40% less energy than traditional models. The average American household uses 1,462 kWh per year on refrigeration.

Energy Star TV -- Energy Star televisions use 30% less energy than traditional models. The average American household consumes 308 kWh per year for TV use (with 107 million households).

Energy Star dishwasher -- Energy Star dishwashers use about 41% less energy than traditional models. Dishwashers in the average American household use approximately 271 kWh per year (with 107 million households).

Energy Star computer, monitor, and printer -- Energy Star computers, monitors, and printers use about 75%, 85%, and 60% less energy, respectively, than traditional models. The average American household uses about 215 kWh per year on computer use. For this calculation, we assume energy savings of 75% for replacing all three appliances.

Energy Star clothes washer -- Energy Star washing machines use, on average, 50% less energy than traditional models. The average household consumes 93 kWh per year to run a washing machine.

On-demand tankless water heater -- About 54% of U.S. households use natural gas for water heating. These households consume 19,000 cf natural gas per year (19.7 million Btu) for water heating.

Replacing a standard tank natural gas water heater with on-demand heating can save up to 30%.

Solar water heater -- About 40% of U.S. households use electricity for water heating. Households with electric water heaters use 2,552 kWh/year for water heating.

Approx. 54% of U.S. households use natural gas for water heating. The average U.S. household uses 19,000 cf natural gas per year(19.7 million Btu)

Low-flow faucets -- Approximately 40% of U.S. households use electricity for water heating. Households with electric water heaters use 2,552 kWh/year for water heating.

Appr. 54% of U.S. households use natural gas for water heating. The average U.S. household uses 19,000 cf natural gas per year(19.7 million Btu).

Old faucets have flow rates of 3-7 gallons/minute (gpm) (PDF). Aerated faucets can have flow rates as low as 0.5 gpm in bathroom sinks and up to 2.2 gpm in kitchen sinks.

The average U.S. household uses 60 gallons of hot water per day, of which 4.6 are used for faucet flow (i.e., 7.7% of all hot water). Replacing old faucets with efficient ones cuts this hot water use in half. Environmental Defense assumes that the percentage savings on energy use is the same as savings from reducing hot water consumption.

Low-flow showerheads -- Approximately 40% of U.S. households use electricity for water heating. Households with electric water heaters use 2,552 kWh/year for water heating.

About 54% of U.S. households use natural gas for water heating. The average U.S. household uses 19,000 cf natural gas per year (19.7 million Btu).

Old shower-heads can have flow rates between 5 and 8 gpm. Low-flow shower-heads use 2.5 gpm.


The average U.S. household uses 60 gallons of hot water per day, of which 26 are used for showering (i.e., 43.7% of all hot water). Replacing old shower-heads with efficient ones cuts this hot water use in half.

All emissions savings are relative to an .average American diet. (data from the UN: 3,774 calories of food are produced per American per day, with 27.7% calories from animal-based products, of which 54% are meats, 41% dairy and 5% eggs). In this diet Americans eat, on average, 199 calories per day from chicken, 209 from pork and 119 from beef.

A meal with no meat. diet assumes that every American eats 350 fewer calories from meat each week (this is about one-third the average daily meat intake, or one meal.s worth of meat). For the .one meal with no meat. and .one day with no meat., avoided calories from assorted meats are in the same proportions as they are consumed in the mean American diet. In all diets, dairy and egg intake remains unchanged and calories from meat are replaced with calories from plant-based foods. The emissions savings from these dietary choices are calculated assuming that the meat not consumed by Americans is also not consumed by others outside the U.S.

CO2 emissions are based on previously published values of the amount of fossil fuel used (and thus the amount of CO2 emitted) to produce different types of foods. Non-CO2 emissions (given as .CO2 equivalents.) from animal-based foods (eggs, dairy, and various meats) are based on data from the U.S. Department of Energy. Only methane and nitrous oxide from animal digestion and manure management are considered. The calculation assumes there are no non-CO2 emissions from crop production.

Recycle steel tin cans -- The average U.S. household uses 90 lbs of steel cans each year. Recycling this saves 144 kWh.

Recycle aluminum cans -- Recycling one aluminum can saves 0.35 kWh. Americans use 200 million aluminum cans per day.

Recycle glass bottles -- Recycling one glass bottle saves 0.4 kWh. The average U.S. household uses about 383 containers per year.

Drive less aggressively -- EPA's latest regulation on fuel economy labeling suggests that highway and city driving is a 57/43 split; assuming that potential fuel economy improvement is half of the maximum improvement. BSB estimates that potential fuel economy improvement is 12 percent. The emissions savings are based on a vehicle with a fuel economy of 20 mpg being driven 12,000 miles a year.

Drive the speed limit -- Reducing speed from 70 mph to 65 mph results in a 9% improvement in fuel efficiency.

Keep your car tires inflated -- Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.4 percent for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires.

Carpool or take public transit to work -- The average commute in the U.S. is 30 miles.
Assuming the reduction occurs for 50 weeks, annual driving would drop from 11,900 to 10,400.

To buy a hybrid or car that is more fuel efficient saves you money every month.

Fly less -- A domestic flight originating in the U.S. averages about 42 passenger-miles per gallon and international flights average 21 passenger-miles per gallon, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

Burning a gallon of jet fuel produces 21.1 lbs of CO2 (U.S. Department of Energy and the Energy Information Administration, Instructions for Form EIA 1605B, Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Appendix B). In addition, according to the Climate Neutral Network, non- CO2 greenhouse gas emissions from air travel are at least as significant as the CO2 impacts (doubling the emissions as expressed in CO2-equivalents) and upstream processes add an additional 8 percent. Aviation was responsible for appr. 1.8 tons CO2-equivalents per person in 2007.

The following sources (averages) were provided by Environmental Defense

The U.S. national average emissions rate is 0.668 short tons of CO2 per MWh

The average price of electricity in 2012 was 13.9 cents/kWh

Burning natural gas produces 116.38 pounds CO2 per 10^6 Btu

Residential energy use: 4.0 tons/person. According to the U.S. EPA s latest inventory of national greenhouse gas emissions CO2 emissions from residential energy use averaged 4.4 tons CO2 per person.

Personal vehicle use: 3.9 tons/person. Also according to the EPA inventory, personal vehicle use accounted for 3.8 tons CO2 per person, assuming a U.S. population of 306 million Americans.

Personal flying: 1. 64 tons/person. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics provides information on jet fuel consumed.

Total personal CO2 emissions: 9.88 tons/person.

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
