    Greening your home simply means finding things you can do around the house to reduce your impact on the planet. Things that green your home usually make it a safer and healthier place to live in as well; this new book will present thousands of low or no cost ways to make your home environmentally friendly. 
     
    You will learn 101 things you can do today to help save the planet. If you are building a new home these include how to locate a green-friendly architect and contractor, using energy-efficient appliances, using renewable energy systems, such as solar and wind, selecting earth-friendly products and materials, installing energy-efficient windows and skylights, and planting a green roof. Other great, environmentally friendly tips and tricks include stopping electronic waste and junk mail, non-toxic paints and stains, eco-friendly flooring, kitchen, and bath supplies, earth-friendly weed-killers, citrus pest killer, organic soils, compost, and fertilizers, and even plants that reduce indoor air pollution, rain barrels, smart sprinklers, water efficiency, tankless water heaters, energy efficiency, tax credits for earth friendly choices, environmentally friendly landscaping, plantings, fertilizers, and mulch.
     
    We dissected your house, looking for easy (but not always obvious) ways that homeowners can conserve energy and water - and money at the same time. Here is an example: Replace just five of your incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (which use two-thirds less energy, generate 70 percent less heat, and last up to ten times longer), and you will save an estimated $35 to $65 a year in energy costs. You will also learn about the award-winning Caroma "dual-flush" toilet from Australia, an eco-friendly toilet whose half- and full-flush modes can save more than 65 percent of your toilet's annual water usage. There are hundreds of other great suggestions in this new and up-to-date book that will make your home greener simply and quickly.

    Cannabis Oil, SimplifiedA Multi-Dimensional Look at Cannabis Oil Production, Politics, and MedicineIn recent years, public opinion on cannabis has taken a turn for the tolerant. Spearheading this shift—on the medical front—is the apparent utility of cannabis oil as a cancer-fighting agent. Its curative properties have been heralded by activists for decades. The mainstream media has offered vindication, and the professional medical establishment has been unable to ignore the far-reaching potentialities of cannabis oil as medicine. Were it allowed to reach its fullest potential, cannabis oil could revolutionize medicine as we know it, offering natural, affordable, healthy, and often miraculously effective alternatives to the pharmaceutical pantheon.In this QuickStart guide, ClydeBank Media not only reviews the standard methods used for safely extracting cannabis oil, but also documents the controversial history and Orwellian political drama that has hindered our ability to harness one of nature’s most fascinating and versatile botanical tools. Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur looking to apply your talents to the green rush, or a student of the quest for basic personal freedoms, you’re sure to get a trove of useful info out of this ClydeBank title.
