AirBnB started it all, but over the last half decade the sharing economy has grown tremendously. It is reaching many different industries and segments. The growth will remain strong and we at firmly green believe its a wonderful occurrence.

Just came across this amazing, eco-friendly means of making a house. Earthships are homes that are building essentially in the ground. The walls are surrounded by dirt and the roof is made of solar power. You have windows near the top of the walls which are essentially ground level. Earthships are a great way to live off-the-grid as the home can be autonomous through naturallay generated energy and cooling methods. Earthships are also generally made from recycled or natural materials. Most Earthships are closer to 300-400 square foot, but I have seen a mega-mansion of an Earthship which looks great. A regular size Earthship can cost around fifty thousand to build.
Today I discovered a great resource for learning green cleaning methods and cleaning chemicals. As you already know I am particularly interested in this field because I am an ardent hater of bringing toxic cleaning chemicals to my family’s home. Green cleaning is a hugely popular trend in the cleaning industry and thus deserves to be looked in further. This website is a great resource for all that are interested in providing their family with a more environmentally friendly atmosphere at home.

According to research performed at Bonn University in Germany they can confirm that a Energy-star certified dishwasher can save close to $431 a year and use 5,000 less gallons of water, and save you 231 hours of time. I think that the time factor is a very huge number and a lot more than I would expect. Depending on how much you value your free time this is a very interesting finding and should impact on how you do your dishes.
