  • 5 Awesome Apps for Sustainable Living

    People are now aware that some of the earth’s most valuable resources are not infinite. We are now starting to encounter some problems that affect the way in which we live. Humans have inflicted a lot of damage to the Earth; its oceans and the atmosphere being at the forefront. In the past, we may not have known the damage that was being inflicted, but we no longer have that excuse. Now, environmental or green movements have become very prevalent and gained a lot of attention and momentum. We find most people will strive to do what they can to lessen the impact humans have on the environment. Little things in everyday life all help, from turning the tap off while we brush our teeth, to saying no to plastic shopping bags. Is this enough? How can we educate people about the effects we have on the environment? Furthermore, how can we get people to implement new green habits into their lives? How do we get people to not only invest their valuable time learning new green habits, but also expend the energy necessary to implement these new habits into their daily life? We use gamification. Why not implement the environmental responsibility to the list of gamification achievements? Sustainability apps are on the rise and making every aspect of green living simple and fun. They are getting people committed.  If you are ever worried about the security of some apps, use a secure iPhone VPN.   1. Good Guide Give credit where credit is due! Good Guide allows you to identify companies with great green practices. Often these great businesses are going unnoticed, not any longer. Each dollar you spend on a product or service is a vote for that business. You should strive to make sure your money is supporting the right type of businesses, ones operating in sustainable and ethical ways.   2. Joule Bug This particular app will help save energy. The app shows you lots of ways to make small changes in your day to day life and daily habits. Changing these habits can save you lots of energy. The app can even connect to your home utility account and shows you how much money you have saved. Protecting the environment and your money! You will earn rewards for each action you take towards saving energy. You can get extra motivation from leader boards and share your experiences and results on Facebook.   3. Paper Karma This app is a winner. It gets rid of your junk mail! Every time you receive junk mail, it’s paper that has been wasted, not to mention clogging up your mailbox. All you have to do is take a photo of the junk mail you have received, and you will be unsubscribed – a miracle! No more wasted paper and no more junk mail.   4. Eco-Dice This fun application encourages you to complete a green task each day. Just tap the screen (roll the dice), and you will be given that task. It could be doing some recycling, walking to work instead of driving or save as much water as possible.   5. Green Me!  This app is helping you create new, more sustainable, lifestyle habits. It provides users with hundreds of great ideas that are all separated by category, each aiding the process of a greener lifestyle.   Green Me! is structured like a calendar. Each time the user logs a green activity, that date will turn a darker shade of green. This way, the user can visually track their progress on the calendar. You can learn plenty of new information about green habits and look up any definitions. Also, you can list some green ideas of your own.   There are plenty more apps that gamify sustainability and conservation. People are getting on board and helping the environment for the better. Maybe you need some extra motivation, or maybe you need a kick in the backside to get you started. These apps can help you achieve your green lifestyle. Start doing your part and have some fun while you’re at it!

  • Great Living Homes - Rural Home Builders

    Living away from the city allows you to purchase much larger blocks of land for a price that is a lot easier on the hip pocket, it also means you can take advantage of that size and space when building your new residence! Rural builders in WA design their homes to be able to accommodate large or extended families because rural properties are often a good distance from the services we are all used to seeing in the metropolitan suburbs.

  • 5 ways to clean more with less waste

    Are you part of the healthcare, hospitality, construction or manufacturing industry? Or do you supply cleaning products to them?   Effective cleaning with minimal waste is an important global concern. And whether you’re a supplier or an end user, you need to make sure that you’re doing all you can maximise your green credentials.   But how do you clean effectively with minimum impact on the environment? Read our blog to get 5 tips on how you can clean more with less waste.   1.Train your team to ensure they clean methodically   Whether your team cleans using a traditional bucket and mop, cloths and chemicals or impregnated wipes, the way they clean forms a crucial part of the amount of waste they create.   If your team is methodical and systematic in their approach, you’ll save on both products and time. Ensuring that your team gets into a routine and cleans from top to bottom, for example, will not only make them more efficient, but will also reduce the amount of waste they create.   2.Use the right product in the right way   It may sound obvious, but if your team is using the wrong product for the job – a surface cleaner when you require a disinfectant, for example – you’ll use more than necessary. So not only will your cleaning not be up to scratch, but waste production will skyrocket.   Cleaning chemicals and impregnated wipes are function-specific. They’re often colour-coded, meaning it’s straightforward to identify the right product for the job.   And if you’re using an impregnated wipe, you can get maximum use out of it by folding it. For example, Uniwipe products can be used to carry out the eight-fold British Institute of Cleaning Standards technique. They’re also dispensed one wipe at a time, meaning you get the one wipe you need while the others stay fresh in the pack.   3.Recycle as much as possible and use recyclable packaging   Responsible manufacturers put impregnated cloths and chemicals in recyclable packaging. If you’re a supplier, you’ll enhance your green credentials by making it your policy to specialise in these products.   There are various styles of packaging, and wipes generally take up less storage space than traditional alternatives. However, the amount of waste generated by wipe packaging varies wildly. Uniwipe’s pouches generate 900% less waste in weight – and a huge 1500% less waste in volume – than a major competitor’s tub-style packaging.   Whatever your industry, you’ll reduce your waste by not only using products with recyclable packaging, but by adhering to stringent recycling practices.   4.Save on water, reduce laundry costs and improve effectiveness by using wipes   You need to recycle wherever you can. But remember, reusable cloths have to be rinsed constantly and laundered at the end of the day. The soapy chemical mix then has to be processed before it can be released into the waterways. Traditional cloths therefore use additional energy and water, not to mention chemicals.   What’s more, they become less effective as the day goes on, as the cloth gathers dirt and can even start to re-spread it.When you’re deciding on your cleaning product range, you need to consider the overall picture, and balance the cost and energy of laundering against the waste created by an impregnated wipe.   To give you some comparison, Uniwipe provides 19 square metres of clean cloth compressed into a volume of 2.5 litres. Rinsing and laundering the equivalent of just 1 kg of cloth – even with the most efficient machine – would require around 19 litres of water, while typical washers would require between 22 and 30 litres. (Alliance for Water Efficiency)When you look at it like that – and consider that the right wipes are anti-bacterial and eliminate cross-contamination – the choice is straightforward.   5.Reduce chemical usage, remove chemical mist and eliminate dry wiping   One of the main reasons that businesses create excess waste is down to chemical spillages. Impregnated cloths make these a thing of the past. There are no chemicals to store, mix or spill, saving time and reducing waste. Many areas across numerous sectors are traditionally cleaned with chemical spray and wiped off with paper. Not only does this create unpleasant chemical mist,  it also uses large volumes of paper, and increases the risk of ‘dry wiping’, where the surface is merely wiped and not actually cleaned. Uniwipe’s colour-coded products eliminate cross-contamination, dry wiping and chemical mist and give you the exact chemical concentration you require for each job, meaning you’ll never use more than you need. What’s more, 50% of the fabric in our wipes is from a renewable source and is biodegradable. As a result, they’re a cleaner, greener option for businesses and suppliers looking to clean more with less waste.
