I've blogged before about vertical gardens, but now I've found a cool system that helps you create an entire green wall!
I was cruising through the Top 100 Products issue of Buildings Magazine, and ran across Green Walls by Green Screen.
Green Screen is a 3-D welded wire trellising system that can be used pretty much anywhere, even as a free-standing element. When used in conjunction with a building, the trellising system keeps plants from growing directly on the facade, thereby protecting the building.
Definitely some beautiful options out there. Wonder if my HOA would approve? Or if I could actually keep the plants alive? :)
This powerstrip saves 10% on your home or business electric bill.
The price of energy affects businesses, schools and homes worldwide. The USB EcoStrip 2.0 eliminates the flow of electricity to computer peripherals when the computer is turned off, thereby drastically reducing electricity bills in the home and workplace.
According to the Department of Energy, 75 percent of all household electricity consumption is consumed when products are turned off. This costs the average home almost $1,200 each year.
