Posted on: Sunday, March 21st, 2010 at 10:47 am
There are a whole lot of reasons for going green. You don’t have to worry about taking in chemicals. These vegetables taste much better. It is higher in vitamin content. No harm is done to the environment as no pesticides are used.
Clear out a patch of soil for gardening. Be picky in choosing vegetable varieties with resistance to your area’s pests. Plant your vegetables in a diverse pattern to distract insects that chew leaves and carry diseases to similar plants. Space each plant so that air circulates around it, and be sure water soaks in and then drains away. These organic strategies help prevent leaf and root diseases. Use black plastic mulches to warm the soil in early spring, or let the soil warm naturally with a blanket of organic mulch. This helps prevent the inevitable weeds on unplanted soil. A little fertilizer and water at frequent intervals will lead to a steady growth of the plants.

Most businesses are now going green including the hospitality industry. Restaurants can now save money and enhance their customers’ experience by going green and eco friendly.
One of the best way to do this is by buying things in bulk because it reduces the packages used which later on need to be disposed. It is also less expensive for a restaurant if products are bought in bulk. Some of the items that can be bought in bulk include spices, sugar, salt and milk.
Instead of using disposable cups, restaurants can use washable mugs and cups for those customers that have their coffee in the restaurants. This reduces the amount of waste that is produced making it better for the environment.
In those cases where disposable cups have to be used, it would be better for the environment if the material used is recyclable. They will also cost the restaurant less compared to non-degradable ones.
