Mircoloans for Clean Energy: The Perfect Fit
Created 8/30/2010 10:09:27 AM 
One-third of the world's population today has no access to any form of modern energy, relying instead on highly polluting fuels like wood and kerosene. No single solution can meet our society's future energy needs. The answer lies instead in a family of diverse energy technologies that share a common thread: they do not deplete our natural resources or destroy our environment.
Compost Yourself to Riches
Created 6/7/2010 8:25:45 AM 
The average American family produces more than 500 pounds of leftover organic material every year; composting not only keeps that waste out of methane-generating landfills, it also produces nutrient-rich, fertile, natural soil. Composting may be the right thing to do for the environment, but it can be hard to get around the smell and the mess—particularly for urbanites without expansive yards.
Environmental Capitalism
Created 1/11/2010 8:59:03 AM 
Private solutions can and should be an important part of the effort to manage and conserve our natural resources. Citizens are frustrated with government policies that are costly, compromise private property rights, and still fail to preserve environmental quality. Where government bureaucracy has created roadblocks, individual entrepreneurs have generated innovative approaches to environmental problems. They are called "enviro-capitalists" or "environmental capitalists."
Profits Hidden in the Rubble

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste consists of all waste originating from construction, renovation and demolition activities, such as rubble, bricks and tiles. The building, construction and demolition industry is one of the largest producers of waste in the world. It is estimated that these materials account for about a quarter of the waste stream. Many of these materials can be reused or recycled, thus prolonging our supply of natural resources and potentially saving money in the process.
Eco Fashion Showcase
Created 10/2/2009 8:05:17 AM 
In a society obsessed with instant gratification, novelty, and conspicuous consumption, it’s easy to dismiss fashion design as frivolous. Skirt lengths and platform heights appear inconsequential when juxtaposed with real-world concerns like climate change, economic strife, water shortages, and hunger and malnutrition. But if you consider the fact that clothing is something in which we envelope our bodies every single day — and which uses a ton of natural resources to produce — to ignore the apparel industry’s environmental and social impact would be negligent, not to mention foolhardy.
Make a Fortune with All-Natural Pools
Created 9/11/2009 8:22:43 AM 
­Conceptually, swimming pools are pretty simple -- they're just big basins of water, but there is a lot of technology and chemicals at work in your average pool -- much more than you might expect. They use a combination of filtration and chemical treatment to continually clean a large volume of water. Some of this stuff might be harmful to you and the environment.
Make Billions Recycling Plastic into New Houses

Plastics are a valuable natural resource. They are derived from fossil fuels and are created at substantial energetic and environmental cost. And yet we have come to treat plastic as the ultimate throw-away consumer commodity - using them in an all-pervasive multitude of short-term applications.
Crowdfunding the Sustainable use of Forests
Created 8/21/2009 7:56:30 AM 
With all the pressures placed upon forests for the natural resources they contain, some creative entrepreneurs envisioned a crowdfunding model to protect and sustain them. At Wisconsin's Driftless Farm, members pay an annual contribution in exchange for the right to enjoy many of the experiences and products the forest has to offer.
Milking Your Algae for Oil
Created 8/12/2009 8:24:41 AM 
A company based in Los Angeles, announced a potential breakthrough in getting oil from pond scum. One big difference from the spate of recent announcements in the algae-sphere: Origin’s new technology promises a better way to “milk” algae to extract their natural oils. Other approaches involve genetically-engineering algae to excrete hydrocarbon-like liquids' and cost is still a huge issue for algae-to-oil operations.
Save BIG Turning Office Waste into Toilet Paper
Created 6/26/2009 8:03:36 AM 
Many businesses are discovering that they can reduce disposal costs, save paper costs, earn money, and preserve our natural resources by reducing, reusing, and recycling office paper. Paper is probably the biggest source of waste in most offices and usage is rising by around 20% every year, with the average office worker using approximately 50 sheets of paper every day in the typical office. That is aside from other paper waste such as newspapers and magazines that they may read.
