    • Understanding the Carbon Cycles Carbon moves between plants and animals, earth, atmosphere and oceans in a continuous cycle.
    • The atmosphere is now overflowing with large amount of carbon dioxide. Some is absorbed by the oceans, some is absorbed by plants and soil. The carbon that remains in the atmosphere absorbs heat, preventing it from radiating out into space. It took hundreds of millions of years to sequester carbon deep in the earth and under the ocean floor, and humans have released much of that carbon into the atmosphere during the last century. The Lopsided Carbon Cycle-Climate change
    • Humans are also destroying forests, releasing more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and reducing the number of plants that absorb it from the atmosphere. Without this trapped heat the Earth would not be habitable. Too much heat, and the climate will change and become less habitable. The same applies to the oceans, where increased carbon changes the chemistry of sea water, making the oceans less habitable and killing sea life.

Lunch Time 10.Get Others in on the Act
    • Working GreenWorking Green 1.More Work, Less Energy For many, a computer is the central tool at work. Optimizing the energy settings for computers can be more than a modest energy saver. Set computers to energy- saving settings and shut down when you leave for the day (“standby” settings will continue to draw power even when not in use). By plugging hardware into a power strip with an on/off switch (or a smart power strip ), the whole desktop setup can be turned off at once Printers, scanners, and other peripherals that are only used occasionally can be unplugged until they’re needed. (make sure to power down inkjet printers before killing the power—they need to seal their cartridges). And of course, turn off lights in spaces that are unoccupied.
    • Saving Electricity Tips 1. Turn off your fan, toilet lights when they are not being used. 2. Do not leave your television etc in in standby mode as when they are on, so it is a serious waste of energy when a device is left constantly on standby. 3. Replace your inefficient incandescent lamps with energy efficient CFL bulbs when life is due. Replace halogen spotlights with LED Spotlights. 4. Switch to cook from gas than on hotplates or oven than from Electricity. If you use a lot of Oven cooking, switch to a microwave. A microwave cuts cooking times by up to 30%. 5. Heat only as much water as you require for drinks and cooking. If you keep forgetting, purchase an energy efficient eco Kettle. (750ml capacity like in Hotels is recommended,) Consider using Hot and Cold dispenser. This saves 40% of your boiled water bills! More AlternativesMore Alternatives Save on electricity at home by knowing how to do it.
    • 6. Use a microwave to reheat food and cook small portions. Although a microwave uses a lot of power, it does so over a very short time without heating up the Utensils 7. Service your air Con at least every 6 months. A blocked Filter and Blower unit consumed 40% more Electricity! Increase your Air-con temperature as much as you can. For every degree you increase from 16C to 25C, you can save up to 5% on your Air-con bill. 8. Vacuum clean the condenser coils at the back or underneath your fridge. Accumulated dust reduces their efficiency by up to 25% adding that cost to your electricity bill. 9. Open your fridge only when necessary as every time you do so, you let in 20°% of heat!. (Note: Minimize pushing in leftover food to keep it fresh, cold before throwing it away the next day. This is a very common practice not realized!) Save on electricity at home by knowing how to do it.
    • Lean Electrisave If you really need to keep food in the Fridge, let it cool down first. Consider getting a Freezer as Freezer uses different gas that have a lower temperature than a Fridge thus consumes lesser Electricity once cold! I have saved 10 % through this and your payoff will get back the investment. 10. Alternatively you can invest in a Lean Electrisave Power Factor improver. (pictured left) This innovative device slowly stores energy and releases it when you turn on Air-cons, fridge, lightings and motor operated devices to reduce pulling of energy from TNB! One great way to find out how much electricity household appliances uses is look at your meter when some one turns on the device. Save on electricity at home by knowing how to do it.

    • Throw a Water Bottle in Your Toilet Tank! How to save Water every time you flush The average home, the toilet accounts for 28% of water use. Weight a bottle with an inch or so of sand or pebbles and fill it the rest the way with water. Seal it and place in your toilet tank away for the operating mechanisms. Putting a 1.5 liter bottle will be saving 25% of water on every flush! Make sure there is enough water left to ensure proper flush use. Most toilets have more than enough room unless they are already low flow with short and long flush design.
    • Consider Installing a Solar Water Heater The average home, shower heating accounts for 20% of Electricity. Saving the 20% of Electricity every time you Shower Five main types of solar water heating systems today. Batch Thermosyphon Open-loop direct Pressurized glycol Closed-loop drainback Because of their relatively low cost and simplicity, for those living in moderate climates with good sunshine available, the Batch heater type is probably the best value for heating domestic water.
    • 2.Digitize In the “digital age” we still consume enormous amounts of mashed up papers, most of which gets used once or twice and then tossed or recycled. The greenest paper is paperless!, so keep things digital. Read newspaper online. The more you do online, the less you need paper. Keep files on computers instead of in file cabinets. Review documents onscreen rather than printing them out. Send emails instead of paper letters. Green print helps eliminate blank pages from document printing and can also convert to PDF for paperless document sharing.
    • 3.Don’t Be a Paper Pusher Replace sending letters and circulating memos by going digital as far as situation permits you. When buying printer paper, look for recycled paper with a high percentage of post-consumer content and minimum chlorine bleaching. Even recycled paper gobbles up a great deal of energy, water and chemical but is environmentally better than virgin paper from pulp tree. Print on both sides of the page when appropriate and use misprints as notepaper. Try to choose printers and photocopiers that do double-sided printing. If your office ships packages, reuse boxes & shredded waste paper as packing material.

    • 4.Greening the Commute An average of 3.7 billion hours and 23 billion gallons of gas are wasted in rush hour traffic each year in America. We can ease some of this strain by carpooling, taking public transport, biking, walking, or a creative combination thereof. If there’s no good way to phase out your car, consider getting a hybrid, electric vehicle, motorcycle, scooter, or using a bicycle. Some employers are even giving a bonus to bike and carpool commuters and special perks to hybrid drivers. For those who think bike riding is for kids and tattooed couriers, consider a high-tech folding bike or an electrically assisted one (see below for more).

    • Working GreenWorking Green 5.Green Sleeves You might be amazed how sharp work clothes from thrift stores can look. If you buy new, get clothes made with organic or recycled fibers. Avoid clothes that need to be dry cleaned, and if they so demand it, seek out your local "green" dry cleaner. See How to Go Green: Wardrobe for more tactics on greening those work duds. Consider buying Used (Car boot sales / Bundle) Don’t throw it all away A tight fit, out of trend, or changing fashion threaten to separate you from your favorite dress shirt. If the condition is perfectly good, you can always donate or Free cycle it. Don’t just abandon your old friend to the waste-stream!
    • 6.Work From Home Instant messaging, video conferencing tools make effective telecommuting a reality. If you can telecommute, hold phone conferences, take online classes, or otherwise work from home, It'll save you the time you would have spent on the trip as well as sparing the air. Telecommuting works for 44 million Americans (not to mention the Tree Hugger staff). Also, consider the possibility of working four ten-hour days instead of five eight- hour days (a consolidated workweek), cutting the energy and time spent on commuting by 20% and giving you some lovely three-day weekends.
    • 7.Use Green Materials Although some paper use can't be avoided, use recycled paper and envelopes processed using eco- friendly methods. Pens and pencils are available in recycled materials, and refillable pens and markers are preferable to disposable ones. Use biodegradable soaps, enzymes and recycled paper or cloth towels in the bathroom and kitchen, and provide biodegradable cleaners for the custodial staff. Buy in bulk so that shipping and packaging waste are reduced, and reuse the shipping boxes. Recycling, and recycled replacements are cheaper than new ones.
    • 7.Use Green Materials Say No! to Plastic Bags & Polystyrene Containers! Bring you own Shopping bags. Yes…Plastic bags create rubbish & not environmental friendly. GEORGE TOWN: Penang will make every Monday a “No plastic bag day” in a bid to become the country’s first ‘green’ state. It is learnt that shoppers who do not bring their own reusable bags will be charged 20 sen for each plastic bag when making purchases from shopping complexes and hypermarkets. The money collected from the sale of plastic bags will go to the fund to help the state’s hardcore poor, a state government source said. Penang CM stated that the local councils had spent about RM57.6 million, early a third of its income in year 2007, to pay for garbage disposal!!!

    • 8.Redesign the Workspace Greening the space in which you work has almost limitless possibilities. Start with recycle furniture & Energy efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) or even LED lightings. Furniture manufactured from recycled materials as well as recyclable. Incandescent bulbs can be replaced with CFL. Not only is natural daylight a free source of lighting for the office, it has been proven to improve worker’s productivity and satisfaction.

    • 9. Lunch Time Bringing lunch to work in reusable containers is likely the greenest (and healthiest) way to eat at work. Getting delivery and takeout almost inevitably ends with a miniature mountain of packaging waste. But if you do order delivery, join coworkers in placing a large order (more efficient than many separate ones). Also, bring in a reusable plate, utensils, and napkins. If you do go out for lunch, try biking or walking instead of driving.
    • 10.Get Others in on the Act  Share these tips with your colleagues.  Arrange an office carpool or group bike commute.  Arrange / Trade shifts and job duties so that you can work four long days instead of five short ones.  Request to get a coffee/tea dispenser for the break room and make sure everyone has a small recycling bin so that recycling is just as easy as throwing paper away.  Bring in a mug or glass from home and keep some handy for visitors so that you reduce or eliminate use of paper cups.

    • Why I go green As a keen DIY person, I like little devices that do neat things utilizing your own energy at the same time saves money. I only buy or build gadgets that can pay for themselves and even see a bit of return over the long haul. This usually means I look for energy-efficient gadgets. What’s nice is that many of these gadgets that adds value, saves money in the long run as well as make a great impact on saving the Environment.
