Green & Eco-friendly in LinkedIn

To promote green & eco-friendly in the world, to share and discuss with everyone who is interested in green and eco-friendly, we have build one group in LinkedIn:  Green & Eco-friendly.

At the moment, Lotfi M'Rad and I are co-ower and doing something on this group. There are several hundred members now for this green & eco-friendly group. But we hope more and more people can participate and join this group. Because Lotfi M'Rad and I, and almost every members of this group know, only if more and more people do something in their daily life for green & eco-friendly, our planet can be better.

So we sincerely hope you can join this group and share your thoughts on this matter!

Tianjin Eco-city Cleantech Focus (part 2)

The catch lies in the blurry definition of what an eco-city actually is; what is appropriate, acceptable and ecologically responsible within a wide range of sustainability indicators? Globally, a question mark still hovers in clean technology circles over what is and what is not an eco-city. Indeed, how far must urban planners go in order to develop a metropolitan area with enough measures of sustainability to warrant recognition as an ecologically friendly area? The SSTEC is trying to tread this very wide line, to bridge the traditional urban industrial fossil-fuel-heavy model and the radically innovative concept of a zero carbon city. Unanimously, proponents of the SSTEC trumpet its green features, such as low household water consumption, large areas of public green space, and low per capita domestic waste generation. While the figures trumpeted by developers are by no means carbon neutral, and not nearly as high as expectations set by previous eco-city projects; their manageability make them attainable, and their presentation has made the entire Tianjin area incredibly sexy for investors and businesses looking to operate in the Bohai Economic Rim.

Tianjin is on fire.

At the center of the blaze is the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City (SSTEC), a joint-venture between Singapore and China, which aims to herald a new era of sustainable urban development. The eco-city is part of a long-term goal to transform a 30-square-kilometer piece of previously underutilized urban land into a fully-functional urban enclave, and to spark the movement in China to ‘green' its rampant industrialization.

China's Hydropower Push in the 12th Five-Year Program period (2011-2015) (part 2)

Due to the unique geographic location and rich natural resources, Nujiang is a perfect place and has been keen to develop hydropower for nearly ten years. At present, small or medium-sized hydropower projects line the rivers in the Nujiang Lìsu Autonomous Prefecture. As we know from the statistics, there are more than 80 new hydropower (hydroelectric power generation) projects currently under construction and 44 completed hydroelectric power generation projects.

The total investment amounts in this area to about RMB 3.46 billion yuan (about US$52 million). The development of Nujiang is back on track after years of controversy.

Top 10 Tips for a Green, Sustainable and Eco Friendly Christmas (part 3)

Be battery wise
Families can get through a lot of batteries, particularly at Christmas. Batteries contain toxic chemicals, don't biodegrade and are difficult to recycle. Instead use rechargeable ones.

Buy an organic turkey
10 million turkeys are eaten every Christmas. If you can, try to make sure it has been reared in humane conditions. Organic turkeys taste better too. Try to buy your Christmas food locally, shopping at farmers markets or buying direct from the farmer is far cheaper than buying organic in the supermarket. Think of the benefits – the taste of chemical-free food, the reduction in food miles and CO2 emissions, and reduced dependence on oil. Buying locally produced food also boosts rural jobs.

Paraffin candles are made from petroleum residues so neither do your health or the environment any good. Soy, beeswax or natural vegetable-based candles are better because they biodegrade, are smoke-free, and so more eco friendly.

Deck the halls with real holly
Instead of spending money on artificial Christmas decorations that won’t biodegrade, let nature decorate your home. House decorations can be made from organic, recycled and scrap materials. Try popcorn, dough, cinnamon sticks, bows, gingerbread, holly, seasonal berries, ivy and evergreen branches – once you have finished with them, you can put them in the composter.
