Bamboo Flooring and the Sustainable Home

With new bamboo flooring, you're literally starting from the ground up in creating a sustainable home. So what's your next step? Even the smallest change can make a big difference. Start small with these five simple tips for a greener living space.

  1. Make sure your bamboo floor shines in the natural sunlight by installing skylights into your ceilings. When you need to turn on the lights, try compact fluorescent bulbs, which use up to 80% less energy than ordinary light bulbs.

  2. Ease off the air conditioner and heater in summer and winter respectively and keep yourself comfortable with oscillating fans and good old-fashioned sweaters. Bamboo floors feel nice and cool on bare feet in the summer, too.

  3. If you're thinking of remodeling your home, work from the inside out and start by replacing outdated heating and air conditioning systems with newer, more energy-efficient systems. Make sure all windows, doors, attics, and walls are adequately insulated as well.

  4. Solar energy isn't just the stuff of science fiction anymore - roof-mounted solar panels can be used to generate electricity and hot water, especially in sunnier locales.

  5. Start with yourself! Try simple things like taking your own shopping bags to the grocery store, turning off lights and electronics when you leave the room, and walking short distances instead of driving when you can. After all, sustainable living might start in the home, but it doesn't have to end there.

I live in a very HOT desert like atmosphere and other ways of sustaining our globe are changing air filters frequently, it helps with circulation. I have an eco-friendly home (solar panels in the backyard for my home, i too use the cloth grocery bags as the article states) its more efficient and its so helpful for your power bill people! going green may take money to save money but you'll save more money than you could ever imagine just doing the little things. Bamboo floors are an investment and can run pricey but well worth it because its of course an investment and I can guarantee it will bump up the cash value of your home in the near green future we are all heading in!

As with any secured loan, the risk of losing the asset you put up as collateral is there. If you default on the loan, the lender has the right to take control of your check cashingThey will then sell it to make their money. But if the sale is less than what you owe, you may be on the hook for the difference. And to make things worse, if they sell it and make more than your debt, they keep that as well.
