Reduce Pollution, Save Earth

Everyone talks of pollution now-a-days, many organisations too have sprung up for this cause. We depend on these organisations to control pollution but, little do we care about our own contribution towards controlling pollution.

Small changes in our lifestyle could make a considerable impact on our environment. It doesn’t takes much effort to make a few ordinary changes in our lifestyle which will be beneficia...

10 Tips To Help You Drive Greener

Buying green, can produce significant benefits but so can small changes in your driving behavior. The following tips help you save money at the pump and contribute to the well-being of our planet: Avoid putting the pedal to the metal.

If You Put All Earth’s Water In One Place, It’d Look Like This!!

While it looks like the planet’s surface is covered mostly in water, the fact is there is very little water on this planet when you compare it to the size of the planet as a whole. The USGS created this image to give us a little perspective. USGS states, “About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. But water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you and your dog. Still, all that water would fit into that “tiny” bal...

Effects Of Mining On Environment

Mining refers to the process of extracting metals and minerals from the earth. Gold, silver, diamond, iron, coal and uranium are just a few of the vast array of metals and minerals that are obtained by this process.

Mining reaps huge profits for the companies that own them and provides employment to a large number of people. It is also a huge source of revenue for the government. Despite its economic importance, the question that how does mining affect the environment is...

How does cutting down trees affect us and our environment?

Trees give out oxygen, even because of them we have the rains, in short they maintain the ecological balance. If we would cut trees what is going to happen is that population won’t stop growing but oxygen in the atmosphere will reduce. Another effect can be scarcity of food. and many other problems are attached to it such as less of rains will result in less water for irrigation. Less water for irrigation would result in less harvest which would again lead to less food and if this continues to happen for a long period of time then it might lead to famine type situations. Trees have to breathe...

How much Oxygen Does One Tree Produce?

You’ve probably heard that trees produce oxygen, but have you ever wondered how much oxygen one tree makes?

important tipss

Every day, we must use or at least be related to the paper. Without knowing it, our dependency to the paper turns out to be wasteful behavior leading to deforestation. Every 15 reams of A4 paper will need a tree. Every 7,000 pieces of newspapers people read daily will consume 10-17 forest trees. In just a day, how many millions sheets of paper are used by Indonesian people, and this means that there are millions of forest trees are cut down to meet those needs. So what can we do to save Indonesia’s forests which cover about 120 million hectares? If we are just ‘ordinary people’ who have no po...

FAMOUS QUOTES RELATED TO TREE….FEEL THE DEPTH OF TREE…..

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen. ~Henry David Thoreau You can live for years next door to a big pine tree, honored to have so venerable a neighbor, even when it sheds needles all over your flowers or wakes you, dropping big cones onto your deck at still of night. ~Denise Levertov I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep...

RELATION OF PAPER AND TREE…SAVE TREE AND LIVE AN AWESOME LIFE….

Many people have heard the statistic that “a ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees.” The “17 trees” number was popularized by Conservatree when it was a paper distributor, based on a report to Congress in the 1970s. It was calculated for newsprint, which is made in a totally different papermaking process from office and printing papers. But it was the best number anyone had, so it became the number everyone used to calculate number of trees saved by recycled paper, or number of trees cut to make virgin paper, no matter what type of paper they were talking about. Paper is made from a mix of typ...

CONSIDERATIONS IN CALCULATING TREES TO PAPER

What kind of paper are you talking about? Paper made in a “mechanical” or “groundwood” process (e.g. newsprint, telephone directories, base sheet for low-cost coated magazine and catalog papers) uses trees about twice as efficiently as paper made in the “kraft” or “freesheet” process (e.g. office and printing papers, letterhead, business cards, copy paper, base sheet for higher-quality coated magazine and catalog papers, advertising papers, offset papers). Is the paper “coated” or “uncoated”? The fiber in a coated paper (most often used for magazines and catalogs, with a clay coating that may...

Disadvantages of Plywood

While plywood is a versatile, strong, and durable material, it is not without disadvantages. Plywood is subject to a variety of problems, both from its unsuitability for certain purposes and from environmental hazards. Used incorrectly, plywood can rapidly fail.

Plywood comes in a variety of thicknesses, but the only means of changing the thickness to suit a particular need is by gluing sheets together....
