Wedding receptions or corporate events

From the environment point of view, hosting a virtual event such as a virtual wedding reception or a virtual corporate event is the most environmentally friendly option. While a virtual corporate event may be more acceptable than a virtual wedding reception (physical personal touch required), corporations may still be mindful of prestige and reputation and obviously a face to face business meeting will beat virtual meeting anytime. For business, nothing beats physical Corporate Events.

So if you or your loved ones wants to get married, probably hosting physical weddings is unavoidable especially if it is the bride who makes the decision. And for corporate events, virtual corporate events are probably not on the card for probably the CEOs would probably insist on actual real physical Corporate Events.

Environmentally friendly way dealing with real estate

Calgary is a city in the province of Alberta, Canada just 50 miles from the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The city is large in physical area. Its geographical size is a challenge for those wanting to deal in Calgary real estate.

If you happen to be a landlord seeking tenant to rent your property or a purchaser to buy your property, you will have a large geographical area to cover thus involving driving to your destinations and in the process, burning up fast depleting fossil fuel and contributing green house gasses to the atmosphere. Ditto for someone seeking a property to rent or to purchase.

In such situation, it is much better to engage Calgary real estate agents who will have a portfolio of properties to manage and thus will be in a position to rationalize and optimize driving to a minimum by proper scheduling.

Reuse old toothbrush - clean toilet bowl

Tip: Ever wonder what to do with used worn toothbrush. Reuse it as a toilet bowl brush. The normal toilet bowl brush because of the curvature are not able to brush and clean the smaller radius curve. However, a toothbrush because of its small dimension can easily brush and clean the more curvy part of the toilet bowl. See photo below and compare the toothbrush and the toilet bowl brush:

Of course, you got to make sure you don't mix this reused toothbrush with your normal toothbrush you use to brush your teeth. That would be a disaster. Put it into a plastic bag, seal it and store it somewhere safe such as the cabinet under the washbasin.

Tarpaulin online supermarket

My attention was recently drawn to an online shop which can qualify as the tarpaulin online supermarket which sells all kinds of tarps ranging from general purpose clear tarps to truck tarps and even to protection and safety equipments like welding blankets. There are lots more and if you want to find out how varied are their offerings, you will have to surf over to their website.

The one that led me on an information searching trip was the welding blanket and what I found was that welding can be a pretty hazardous task both for the welder as well as the surroundings if you do not have the required safety equipment like a welding blank.

A welding blanket protects the welder or its surroundings from sparks, spatter and slag generated by welding or metal-cutting applications.

Below is a video which shows a welding blanket in operation:

Make environmental blogs do more

A free hosted blog using the free Blogger.com or Wordpress.com is fine for just making known to the world your views about the environment, interacting with viewers, spread environmental awareness with perhaps Blogger.com being my choice over Wordpress.com

However, if you demands more from your blog like for selling environmentally friendly products, you would probably need to be able to do more than what Blogger.com and Wordpress.com can offer.

That is the circumstances which will require a shift to self hosted blog powered with Wordpress.org (yes, there are 2 versions of Wordpress, one free and hosted and another paid and require you to host yourself). This means you will have to choose a web host for your blog.

However, making a choice of webhost need not be a lonely affair as you have Web Hosting Rating for reading reviews of web hosts.

There are many web hosts which uses Windows webhosting because Windows users are more widespread.

However you also can choose Linux webhosing
