5 ways to a green New Year

It is that time of the year again. Time to indulge in festivities and celebrations. Even in this festive season, some simple ways can help you remain green.

1. Green gifts
Go green while you gift to your loved ones. It can be as simple as gifts like home decor made of recycled paper fiber, or the gardening gifts to encourage gardening. Lot of options are available in the market, just ask for the green gifts.

2. Have a dark party
Literally, turn off the lights and have a no-light party on the new year eve. Dark is fun, and you go green too !

3. Commuting
As far as possible, use public transport while commuting. You not only save fuel, but also money !

4. Recycle
After the party, remember to recycle everything can be recycled. Collect all the recyclable waste and send it off for recycling.

5. Pledge
And last but not the least, pledge that you will be green in the new year as well !

Happy 2009 !

100 months only

For all, those who thought that Global Warming is still centuries away, a recent report by BBC News has reported that only 100 months are left to prevent dangerous global warming. With rising greenhouse gas emissions, the d-day is perhaps not far.

The rising emissions need to be curbed now or it will be too late tomorrow. After approximately 100 months, the world will reach a point where the risk of massive climate change will be unacceptably high. Governments across the world are trying their best by formulating policies to curb the emissions. But, as an individual, each one of us have to ensure that we do our best to delay the climate change.

Individually, let us pledge not to waste any energy from today.

Black Out Day on August 15, 2008

Exactly 30 days from today, people across the world will be united for a common cause of presenting a green planet to the future generations. We all understand the need of actions for this cause, but when it comes to doing something, most of us have no clue of the importance of our tiny steps. Green 1.0 is born for this reason only, to tell individuals that their small steps are not only invaluable, but also very necessary without which, we cannot reach anywhere near our aim of a green world.

Through Green 1.0, we encourage individuals to pledge that they will keep their electrical appliances turned off at 2000 hrs local time on August 15, 2008. We are calling it the Black Out Day.

We hope that every well-wisher of of our Mother Earth will help us raising more pledges for the cause encouraging their friends and participating in spreading the word. Lets do it before its too late !
