Everyones going Green!


Every company right from the power production,mobile phone to construction knows that GREEN is the way to be! Going GREEN would definitely be an advantage keeping in mind the long term benefits and  goodwill of the company as need to be proactive with respect to climate change is on priority now!  Here I have a few examples that can help us in moving closer to being greener and one step closer to sustainability.
 

First let us talk about LG Mobile phones which are solar powered. I know it is not anything revolutionary or jaw-dropping but it is small things like these that will make a difference. Many times the problems to the most complex problems are simple just that they need to be implemented on a large scale. With large companies like LG taking the initiative and setting examples it is a ray of hope for all those environmentalists who are going crazy thinking and calculating how far we are from “The tipping point”.  A ray of hope everyone would be clinging on to!
 

Coming back to the solar powered phone. Here’s a picture of it:

After Samsung decided to go green in style with its new Blue Earth solar-powered phone; it’s now turn for LG. LG,promises to use green packaging with the user manual in a soy ink on recycled paper.

Samsung Blue Earth phone not only has the solar panel at the back but is also made from  recycled plastic wastes. The themes also reflect on how fragile our environment is. For more information Click here.
Below is a picture of the phone:

Coming to the power industry. We have always heard the developed countries blaming the developing countries for not adopting green techniques and being the major producers of CO2. Now, China has proved this wrong! While the USA is just planning  on setting up green power production industries, these are being set up in China at the rate of one per month! The only drawback of these power plants is that their efficiency is much lower than those that will be set up in the US. In China the efficiency is about 27-30% while in western countries it is being estimated to be around 40%. Neverthless, it is a move by China that needs to be appreciated!

A lot of research works are being funded for the production of biofuels from algae, using bugs, etc. These are the same projects which governments had rejected for funding as then there were large fossil fuel reserves and investing in this was not of importance. Its good to see perspectives change now! To read more click here.

Coming to the next level of attaining sustainability, our houses! I saw these really interesting designs of a house which would look weird to most of us but actually are very cool. Check these out!
curved-colorful-home-interiorcurved-organic-house-designThese look absolutely COOL! The best thing is they have so many opening for sunlight that as you can see we can grow the veggies we need and reach an all together different level of sustainability. Here, organic farming (NOT gardening) would be an ideal thing to do!!! Also building houses like these would emit far lesser amount of CO2 when compared with building sky scrapers…

Well… This is all I have for now! Lets hope more companies and people go green!!!

    If you’re really interested in green technology & cleantech, you should check out this lecture from Vinod Khosla at HBS. It’s a little long but its pretty good. Most people think Khosla is too idealistic, however he has some smart things to say.

    Also here’s a good interview with Khosla where he talks about cleantech

    Going green is certainly chic, but people seem reluctant to make the big changes. Samsung will sell a lot of phones, but most people will charge them conventionally. (The recycled plastic is a nice touch, though.)

      yeah, it is chic! Lets see how people use them! Even I was initially a little sceptical when i heard about 3mins talktime after charging it in the sun for 10mins! Its progress anyway!
      Recycled plastic really steals the show!

    I am positive about people going green. I accept the above comment that people will still be charging the cell phones via conventional methods. But still,since the phone is charging by itself every time its exposed to sunlight, the frequency of charging from a socket is reduced. And I hope researches will one day succeed so that the efficiency of the solar cells will become good enough to use them as a primary source than as a secondary power scheme like we use now. I am patiently waiting for the good day to come.
