Alternative Energy, Conscious Business, Writing Tips


-- Eco - News --

Businesses and organizations are no longer waiting for international governments to initiate immediate positive change for the world. Examples of this can be found in every community across the planet. I'd like to share two stories of some amazing steps towards a more positive, ecologically conscious world:

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. announced on September 18, 2008, that it has developed a series of breakthrough painting technology that includes a streamlined process, which requires less painting equipment than usual and therefore cuts carbon dioxide
emissions and volatile organic compounds by up to 50 percent.

More recently, I read in the Japan for Sustainability Newsletter (www.japanfs.org) that the Hokkaido Green Fund, a nonprofit organization, is installing a community wind power farm in Wajima City. The article stated that "The Hokkaido Green Fund has played a significant role in installing community wind power in Japan". Japan's wind turbine farms are called "community wind power" because local citizens can participate in the project in such ways as providing investment. This is far from being the first wind farm in Japan; in the last 7 years alone 11 wind turbines have been installed throughout the country
.
