Micro Green - Small Things, Big Difference
Its about the little things we can all do to reduce our impact on the environment without sacrificing a modern lifestyle. DIY wind and solar power projects to produce your own power, lifestyle changes and things you can do around the home. Some of these things are amazingly easy to do and take very little effort. Some of them will save you money, others may save you time. Some of them are educational and demonstrate a scientific principle. Some of them might just be good fun!
Our aim is to provide information, ideas and inspiration to help you make changes that will reduce your carbon footprint. The ideas and projects will range from simple ideas that you can implement within minutes to more ambitious projects such as a DIY wind turbine or solar power. While we will cover a range of ideas the focus will be on low cost and DIY solutions that are within reach of everyone.
A side effect of being green is that as well as protecting the environment in which we live, it often saves money too. We believe that the monetary cost of living, i.e. eating, travel, heating and powering a home is often related to the environmental cost. With that in mind we focus on ideas that save you money as well. We all like to save money so this site will appeal to everyone!
