Going Green - Washington Post Articles

The Sunday Source section of this week's Washington Post (8/6/06) is all about being green. It includes the following articles on making the world greener:

- Going, Going, Green: including a sustainable dance club with organic beer, rainwater collection for toilets, and powered by dancing!

- 5 Things to Do with this Newspaper: including fixing a flat bike tire (Of course they don't mention the option of reading the paper online instead of buying it in the first place, but I guess it's a start).

- The Look: Environmentally Friendly Clothing - bamboo shirts, anyone?

- Green Buildings

- Increasing Gas Mileage: article focuses on hybrids, but also includes "hypermilling" techniques that can be used for both hybrids and regular cars

Dual Flush Toilets is great way for a household to save thousands of gallons per year.
A Dual Flush Toilet is simply a toilet with two different ways to flush it. The full flush uses 1.6 gallon per flush and that is for solid waste. The half flush uses 0.8 gallons per flush and it is for liquid waste.

Stylish way to go green.
