Building a Eco Friendly Home

Green home building is no longer just a trend. More than half of all U.S. builders report implementing green construction in a significant percentage of their new homes. By 2020, 51 percent of builders expect that at least 60 percent of their new homes will qualify as green. Clearly, eco-friendly home building is rapidly approaching the tipping point toward being mainstream. The following infographic shows different ways to build a more eco-friendly home.

Guide to Restaurant Sustainability

Restaurant dining is on the rise, offering convenience, entertainment and a place to relax. No wonder Americans reported spending more money in restaurants than on groceries in 2015, with over half saying they eat out at least once a week. Despite the positive aspects to restaurants, there is also a dark side to the industry. The restaurant industry has been one of the most wasteful when it comes to the use of resources. It’s been found that for every restaurant meal served, an estimated half pound of food is wasted. In addition, nearly 80 percent of energy used in food service is lost to inefficiencies. 


More and more restaurant owners and designers are becoming aware of these issues and taking steps to become sustainable. Learn about some of the most important concepts in responsible restaurant planning that help designers and restaurant managers achieve sustainability. 

Guide to Restaurant Sustainability
Guide to Restaurant Sustainability was created by Specifi, a global leader of design and publishing tools for the hospitality industry.

Decision On Indian Currency demonetization?

As per NIPFP; Black Economy which is 60 to 70% of GDP come to anywhere b/w 93 to 97lakh core and only 3 to 6% is hoarded cash. Meaning hoarded cash comes to only 3 to 6 lakh cores while the govt. has cancelled 15 lakh cores of cash. But cancelling high-value currency solves the problem?
Now statistical reports says first 6 days withdrawals were 12k Core as opposed to deposits of 86K crore.
There are multiple questions with that logic; this assumes that a good chunk of the cash that’s coming in or in circulation is black money?
An assumption which economists say it’s simply not true?
Out of this at least 50% would be with businesses and not with the households!
Point is cash is overall a very small component of Black Money.
There is no evidence to suggest that black money is purely held in cash or driven largely held in cash.
There seems to be a lot of evidence to suggest that black money is held in other asset like gold and real estate.There are evidence that is it invested in various sectors like education and health; what it does it put some sand in the wind so things can slow down.
Do you think govt. has taken risky step!

National Geographic indicates that it would take 67 ships a full year to clean up a mere 1% of all litter at the bottom of the North Pacific Ocean.


Global epidemic : Littering.

Research by National Geographic indicates that it would take 67 ships a full year to clean up a mere 1% of all litter at the bottom of the North Pacific Ocean.
