ABOUT THIS BLOG

Back in 2006, we began to be interested in projects for alternative energy supply in houses. My husband had a very important job then and one day the lights were turned off. At that moment we did not have an emergency generator and the lights were turned off throughout the entire area, and for two days. And then we saw the only house on the street, whose light was on in the evening. It was our neighbor who was developing solar panels. We didn’t know anything about it at that time and he gladly told and showed us everything and we were very interested. My husband was an investor and offered to a neighbor, his name is Gehry and by the way we are still working with him, a joint project on which we started working.

Energy
saving

Solar panels allow you not only to provide your home with energy, but also to accumulate it in special reservoirs to use on those days when the sun is dim or does not shining at all.
In order to power the solar panels, no fuel is needed and, accordingly, no waste is thrown into the air we breathe or into the ocean, which suffers greatly due to human actions in the 21st century.

Aquaponics is a system of farming that combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, and crabs in tanks or ponds) with hydroponics (growing plants in water). Aquaponics is the integration of these two environmental approaches. With Aquaponics, you can now grow vegetables in your living room. In addition, you can grow your food plants without using any chemicals and pesticides with the help of an aquaponic system.

The three biggest challenges when setting up Aquaponics are choosing the right system for your needs, understanding how to maintain it properly and having enough patience to keep everything running smoothly. However, with proper guidance and informative details about the complete process, you can easily set up your own aquaponic.

How do Fishes Trade in an Aquaponic?

Aquaponics is a sustainable method of farming using hydroponics (growing plants in water) with fish and shrimp. It combines the best approach of aquaculture and hydroponics to nurture food production while simultaneously using less water, pollution and space than traditional agricultural methods. The fishes in this system are the ultimate source of nutrition for your plants.

The fishes in the system trade by swimming through interconnected pipes and tiny filter tubes. Farmed fish systems create microbial colonies that convert waste into healthy fertilizer for plants. In addition to a single fish system, Aquaponics can incorporate fishponds and tilapia ponds.

How to Set up Aquaponics?

With so many benefits and increasing popularity, the demands of constructing Aquaponics are increasing among every house. A brief detail of essentials required to see how to build an aquaponics system step by step by the link is shared here.

  1. Fish Tank

If you have fish, or even if you plan on starting with some fish, the first thing required is a tank for them to live in. The critical factor in the success of your aquaponics system is the fish tank because it’s from where all other filtration and nutrient exchange comes from. So, to start with, make sure that the tank is of sufficient size. For example, you could use about 5 gallons for a small fish tank as 5-10 gallons for a larger one.

  1. The Aquaponics System

After getting the tank ready and making sure that your fish don’t need any unique treatments, you’ll have to install the rest of your aquaponics system. This includes the pump for water exchange, tanks for fish food (called buckets), drip emitters, containers for nutrients, and soil aeration units if you have it available.

  1. Filters

If you want to ensure a healthy environment for your fish and plants, you should put filters in place. Such filters will clean the water by removing ammonia and nitrites so that the fish can live in a clean aquatic environment.

The first thing you need to know is that Aquaponics can grow almost anything; it all depends on space and your needs. It can be a source of food and a hobby if you want. You can choose to make Aquaponics recreational or productive.

A good mattress is a basic necessity for good sleep. Of course, one needs enough sleep to stay fresh and perform their daily activities, but a good night’s sleep is essential for a healthy life too!
Have you ever considered a bamboo mattress for a good night’s sleep? Not only will you be taking care of your body but of your environment too. Wondering how? Read on to find out.

Bamboo – Environmental Friendly

Bamboo is a tall grass that grows very easily in relatively dry areas within a short span of time. They don’t need much water and can grow back to their original height within a span of 3 to 5 years after harvesting. This makes it an excellent ecological substitute for wood in many areas.

Wood and water are fast-depleting natural resources, and bamboo is the answer for both. Wood from forest trees is used, not only for furniture but for construction and decorative purposes too. Moreover, bamboo is increasingly used as a raw material in wood composite areas- like plywood, particle board, wood-plastic composites, etc.

All About Bamboo Mattresses

Bamboo is increasingly being used in the making of comfortable beds and mattresses. Here are a few advantages and disadvantages of using a bamboo mattress:

 

  • The foam is infused with bamboo to make it more sturdy and durable. It provides a good night’s sleep without any backaches or other common issues with a mattress that does not have enough support.
  • Bamboo infused mattress help in maintaining the temperature due to bamboo’s cooling properties. It helps in getting a good sleep even in warm climatic conditions.
  • While resting, your body’s temperature needs to be lower than when you are active and moving around. Bamboo-infused foam mattresses help in reducing the heat and maintaining your body temperature.
  • Bamboo has natural anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties that help these mattresses last long and keep away dust mites and bed bugs.
  • Bamboo is used in making bed sheets too. Since bamboo can absorb moisture, these sheets can help you keep cool through the night and absorb moisture like night sweats too.
  • This material is more breathable than cotton.
  • Bamboo releases oxygen into the environment; thus, using it in your home can provide cleaner air.

The Flip Side

On the flip side, using a bamboo mattress can have these negative effects:

 

  • Bamboo is an emerging sustainable replacement for wood and hence can be expensive. Buying a bamboo mattress can be more expensive than buying a regular foam mattress.
  • These require proper care and can be more high maintenance than regular mattresses. Instructions need to be followed if you want the product to last long.
  • When bamboo is used in fabric, it goes through a lot of chemical processing. It can nullify the ecological benefits as a lot of chemicals are being washed off into nature.
  • Since many manufacturers are getting into this business, there can be a drastic difference in the foam used with bamboo in these mattresses. One needs to do proper research before buying a bamboo mattress to ensure they do in fact and enjoy the benefits.

 

The advantages outweigh the disadvantages, making the bamboo mattress a good substitute for regular memory foam mattresses.

A lot of time has passed since the inception of the idea of using solar energy in everyday life to the moment of its implementation and many years of improvement. It is enough for you to use this technology without any problems.

Time-tested

Yes, this is not a cheap investment. Yes, for the first couple of years it won't cover the costs. But, you buy something that will serve you for years. Ultimately, we will all use solar energy. Start first and in a couple of years the neighbors will regret not following your example right away.

Excellent Investment

Our planet is being poisoned unintentionally. Although this has long been a known fact. Using a conventional energy source, you unknowingly contribute to environmental pollution. Rise above this and maybe you and I will live to see the next century, who knows.

Our planet will thank you
