Ideas For the week:
Fluorescent Lights replace a standard bulb with a compact fluorescent one. You will get more light for less money and save a lot of energy.
Don't by aerosols! aerosols cannot be recycled and are guaranteed to be in land fills.
Got somebody, she's a beauty. Very special, really and truly. Takes good care of me, like it's her duty. One that rides by my side, night and day. No letting go, no holding back. Because you are my lady, when I'm with you it's all i got. Girl I'm so glad we made it."
There is a new couch on the market that is made from recycled wood waste, paper, and other recycled materials. "Flexible love seat" the accordion like honey comb structure of the couch was made to be bent and stretched for sitting comfortably. The flexible love seat can hold from as many as 16 individuals, and changing shape, length, and size from a simple pull of the ends. It is definitely environmental safe because it is made from all recyclable material.

Hot Eco cars
The GreenGT is hoping to kick butt at the 2011 Le Mans. It gets 400 hp and has a top speed of 171 mph. It has 1,475 lb-ft of torque up to 100 mph, where it then eases to 590 lb-ft for high-speed traction. And if that doesn't make you drool, its powered by lithium-ion batteries charged by flexcell photovoltaic solar panels.
Supercar maker Gumpert brought a molded version of their Apollo racer to the 24 Hours Nürburgring (inspired by the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans) this past May. The racecar has a 630 hp twin-turbo 3.3-liter V8 paired with a 134 hp electric motor that can recharge by regenerative braking.
Ronn Motor Company's Scorpion is as controversial as it is hot. According to the manufacturer, their hydrogen injection power train (H2GO) which injects small amounts of hydrogen--generated on board--into the fuel line improves mileage by 30-percent. This process also reduces CO2 output.
The Dodge Circuit EV uses a 200 kW (268 hp) electric motor and has 480 lb-ft of torque. Along with reaching 60 mph in under 5 seconds, the lithium-ion batteries provide enough juice for a 200 mile range and can be charged in four hours via a 220 V outlet.
