Going Green in 2008!

The Southern Video Blog is going green in 2008. I have several new videos planned for 2008 and beyond all with a green theme and directed toward the environment and global warming. I'll take a look at hybrid vehicles and alternative means of transportation. I'll visit an organic farm and see how buying local produce can help to reduce your carbon footprint. I'll search out people that have choosen green lifestyles and show you ways that you can live a more environmentally friendly life. Stay tuned to the Southern Video Blog and GO GREEN!

I think going green is something that everyone can agree is a step in the right direction toward building a better community, and laying down the foundations for which future generations can successfully thrive in a healthier environment. Plus, I think many businesses will benefit from going green, not only building a more acceptable public persona, but in the long run it really helps companies save money and be a positive contributor to the world we live in.

Another thing I want to talk about is bioheat, it’s just one small measure that people can take in order to start living a greener lifestyle.

Has anyone ever heard of it, or has switched to it? I want to start taking initiative in turning my home into a greener household, one way I have started is by switching out all my lightbulbs in my home to energy efficient lightbulbs. And I am also seriously considering switching over to bioheat as an alternative to regular oilheat. The thing that I love the most about it is that it’s completely clean burning, and is comprised of a b5 blend of oils which are derived from natural plant and vegetable sustainable resources such as corn, hemp, and avocados just to name a few. If you all want more information on how bioheat works, just go on to http://oilheatamerica.com/index.mv?screen=bioheat I work with NORA to bring this info to you all!

Whitney thanks for your comment. We too have made steps toward reducing our carbon footprint by making our home greener. Using CF light bulbs, hanging our clothes out to dry on a clothesline, and adjusting our thermostat so our HVAC use less energy when we are not at home. If fact there are many simple ways we have adjusted our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
One problem I have with systems such as bioheat is that it uses food sources for energy production and not food. This drives up the cost of food in the supermarkets. If these systems used biomass sources from agricultural waste it would be much better but even then you have to look at how the biomass may benefit the soil through composting rather than consuming it as an energy source.

I also agree we should all do our part to help our environment. No matter how large or small, we can all make a difference. There are so many different things that you can do sometimes it gets overwhelming so start small and in your own price range then go larger from there.
