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.

Recently I have been having issues with gray hairs that are sprouting throughout my hair. Being apposed to hair dyes that are ridden with tough, harmful chemicals I went in search of hair dye that is natural. I have found henna to be the solution. Henna hair dye is has been used for centuries to give hair a conditioned, red/orangish color. But when henna is used with indigo powder it provides your hair that natural jet black hair color. This is a great inexpensive solution to using hair dyes. My only suggestion is to make sure that you purchase 100% henna and 100% indigo powder, as many retailers will sell you henna that are mixed in with Para-phenylenediamine (PPD), sometimes called “black henna”. My suggestion is to stay away from products that list this in their ingredient as it can cause allergic reactions and lifelong health issues for the skin.
I just purchased this lotion today and it has been a godsend. It doesn’t contain the toxic chemicals that are found in mainstream lotion, yet it has an enduring effect on the skin. The scent isn’t overwhelming and it provides relief to dry skin. This product comes highly recommended from a majority of the reviews.

Michigan University has made the switch to liquid ozone cleaning method for all of their university housing. The liquid ozone has been around for 75 years, but only recently has it been used for cleaning.

It is good to see a university take actions that are aligned with what the university preaches. Read the rest at the University Website. Also visit our sponsor Building Maintenance
Is the cost of using green products beneficial for your business. Going green is good for the planet and good for people, but is the cost of going green too difficult to handle. Some fields of business are more costly to go green then others, but overall shouldn’t the cost difference be decreased as much as possible so it can be used more frequently. What is making things difficult is uncertainty of the demand for the product.
