Apple’s New Green Innovative MacBook

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Today’s businesses are beating their competitors by going green. Consumers are responding to sustainable innovation and corporations like Apple are recognizing it! Apple considers their environmental footprint in every product they put on the market. They look at the bigger picture by producing better products that have a smaller impact on the environment.

Take their newest energy efficient MacBook (R) for an example. It’s the greenest note book in the industry with a brilliant LED-backlit display, glass Multi-Touch trackpad and a built-in battery that has seven hours of battery life in just a single charge. Its sleek, yet durable design is constructed out raw and recycled materials!


Biotruck Expedition Reduces CO2 Emissions

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Traveling the world always sounds like an intriguing idea. What about traveling the world in a salvage school bus that runs purely on french-fry fat? Starting his journey on September 19, 2009 Andy Pag has covered 3,000 miles in part of the Biotruck Expedition. Pag, an environmental activist, is attempting to travel the world while emitting less than two tons of carbon dioxide emissions. One of the downfalls of traveling on a bus fueled by fat is the smell, but what can you expect when you are using rubbish as fuel?

Wine Goes Green: From Bottles to Boxes

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

The traditional wine bottle may be in jeopardy after many wineries are going green by boxing their wine instead of bottling it. Imagine walking into a wine cellar and instead of elegant bottles from wall to wall there was just boxes. This idea may not be too far fetched. It may take away from the aesthetic tradition of wine, but when it comes to assimilating to the green way a box makes more sense.

Wineries are now beginning to offer various amounts of organic wines to deplete their carbon footprint. The wine itself is becoming more environmental friendly, next is the packaging. The battle of glass bottles versus paper boxes may not seem like a big deal. It is hard to believe that packaging wine in boxes instead of glass bottles will be beneficial to the environment. However, that is the case according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The making of glass bottles is a more thorough process than one may think. The production of glass and the cork for the bottle uses a considerable amount of resources, all while releasing green house gas emissions into the environment.


Team Green & National Sport Organizations

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Understanding the importance of our environment has become a major issue with most organizations. The green movement isn’t politely saying excuse me anymore. Green is here and organizations better let this movement in or it’s going to push its way through. Now major organizations are giving the attention that going green demands. In this time, when there is such an emphasis on going green the pressure is on organizations in all industries. This includes professional sport organizations which are all changing certain elements in their company infrastructure to accommodate the green movement. The four major sport organizations in North America: MLB, NFL, NBA, and the NHL all have set down guidelines to become more green and eco-friendly.
