Gutter Without Guard Open Gutter- Source of all Problems When the gutter was without protection, people were dumping garbage & debris into it. As a result , there was stagnation & overflow of sewage & breeding of mosquitoes
Gutter With Guard The garden can be over the street open gutters Gutter with a Guard. An elevated platform in the form of a lengthy pot-holder is constructed over the gutter / open sewage in front of the house . The sewage runs below & the garden grows above. No more the problem of garbage & debris falling into it. Home Front Gutter Guard Garden

Do not cement the surface around your home. Grow grass and have cement slabs for walking over. Green surface allows water to percolate into the earth and prevents dust pollution. Use only used water for watering the lawn, as lawn requires a lot of water J. Home Green Surface
Green Cap for Open Terrace - It will reduce the temperature Lawn on your terrace ! It will reduce the heat inside and the current bill too Two conditions 1 You must give a Fibreglass quoting as waster proof to your terrace before laying the lawn. 2. You must use only used water that is ‘treated waste water’ for watering the terrace lawn and not the precious chlorinated drinking water.
Tree felling is at jet speed whereas tree planting is at snail’s pace. The outcome is anybody’s guess. Start planting trees on birthdays, wedding anniversaries and all other functions. Any meeting start with tree planting like singing a prayer.

Trees are must in any street. Have a close look at the word street You didn’t get it still? Remove the first & the last letter from the word STREET HA……………………! HA………………….!! It is Tree! The word street itself has tree! Then what about the street where you live? sTREEt
THE CONCEPT OF ‘HOME BEAUTIFIER’ 'Source DeSoWaM ' for Home, Office, Educational Institutions, Market, Temple 'HOME BEAUTIFIER' WOMEN AND YOUTH WILL BE EMPLOYED BY CIVIC EXNORAS AND DESIGNATED AS ‘HOME BEAUTIFIER’. THEY WILL VISIT THE MEMBERS’ HOME AND CARRYOUT HOME COMPOSTING, HOME WASTE WATER TREATMENT AND HOME FARMING. THEY WILL BE PAID MONTHLY FOR EACH OF THE WORK. Concept : T.K.Ramkumar & MBN
The fourth /Final question will be “Who will do Composting, Home Farming & SoWaM? You can do it. Your children, other family members and your servant can do it. EXNORA trains unemployed women & youth do it. The Home Beautifiers will call on your home every day and do part time. You will get back the wages you pay to the home beautifier by organically grown vegetables on your own terrace. START TODAY. See more pictures in the following frames 4.

Avoid incandescent light bulbs (GLS bulbs). The best is LED and next is CFLs
Nations world over have started banning incandescent light bulbs in favour of more energy efficient light sources, like CFLS & LED bulbs and the ban would cut the world’s greenhouse gas emissions by 4% to 9%
Experts say unchecked greenhouse gas emissions could see temperatures rising between 1.8 and 4.0 degrees Celsius (3.2 and 7.8 Fahrenheit) in the 21st century.
The Indian subcontinent is expected to be one of the most seriously affected regions in the world by global warming, which will mean more frequent and more severe natural disasters such as floods and droughts, more disease and more hunger.
CFLs -- although eight times more expensive than the yellow incandescent bulbs that have been in use virtually unchanged for 125 years -- use 80 percent less energy and you would save households and industries a substantial amount of money. We have been using incandescent light bulbs for 125 years and up to 90 per cent of the energy each light bulb uses is wasted, mainly as heat.
However, there are concerns about the mercury content in CFLs from environmentalists, who say disposing of them could present serious health risks due to the toxicity of the heavy metal.
Alternatives like CFL or LED means more cost effective, longer life, more eco friendly. But care needs to be taken while disposing CFL as harmful mercury could pose an environment threat. Most parts used in LED can be recycled.
A comparison of the average life of the three types:
Has present efficiency of 25 to 40 lumens per watt
For a 40 degree light, produces more than 16.7 times lux than a 360 degree lamp. Thus, a 2 watt LED with 25 lumens per watt, would give 1.74 times more lux.
Due to low wattage, it can be brought closer – a light source at 1 meter requires only 10% of power, compared to a source at 3 meters.
LED light of 1 watt, placed all around the room (4m x 5 m , at 2 m height, spaced 1.5 m approx.) will require 20 lamps, and would give more uniform light than 2 x 40 W lights, placed in 2 ends – thus saving more than 75%
Properly designed LED lights have a life of 100,000 hours – at 12 hours per day, it is close to 23 years.
Major content of the LED is epoxy/poly-corbonate – can be recycled, like plastic when collected
Comparison of alternate lighting systems to incandescent bulb
Light units are measured in terms of Lumen.
The actual requirement for any task is described by light intensity, LUX (a unit of illumination equal to one lumen per Sq. m)
For white light (as spectrum), the maximum light which can be theoretically produced would be around 400 Lumens per Watt
Presently achieved lumens per watt ranges from about 5 with diffused incandescent, to about 120 in high pressure sodium vapour lamp.
The present efficacy of light is measured in terms of “total diffused light”, i.e. the total light produced in 360 degree direction by any lamp.
Since we require light only for specific purposes, using light without reflectors would cause dissipation of light.
The reflectibility of various surfaces is as given in the table below.
50% of human comfort is from radiating to cooler surfaces – any object higher than 32-33 degree C (which is just less than skin temperature) causes discomfort
Glare, caused by an excessively bright source of light in our field of view, interferes with our visual perception. In most situations, glare is something we would like to eliminate for better visual acuity. Direct Glare is caused by the bright source shining directly into the eyes. Indirect Glare or Reflected Glare is due to light sources reflected from tasks or other surfaces into the eyes. By having an uncontrolled direction of light, the possibility of glare becomes higher
