I’ve been looking for ways to decrease my carbon footprint, and finally came upon a solution that would work for me on multiple levels. I was going to get new windows, courtesy of California Windows San Jose. How would this improve the efficiency of my home AND make it look more appealing to the eye? Let me explain.

For one, getting energy efficient windows would help keep the temperate climate indoors. When you have hot weather outside, and an A/C running indoors, it tends to become inefficient because the heat will leak inside. With energy efficient windows, more of the sunlight and heat is blocked, allowing for the internal temperature to maintain a steady temperature.

Another benefit to having energy efficient windows is that I will SAVE money on my monthly energy bill. Not only will I reduce how much energy I am using, but I’ll save money too. That was definitely a selling point for me– especially because it would also mean that I would be able to beautify my home at the same time. Thank you, California Window Masters for showing me the light!

If you live in the Sacramento area, I would also recommend using D&D Windows. They provide replacement windows and energy efficient home windows in Sacramento CA. D & D Windows is located at 5740 Roseville Rd Suite E Sacramento, CA 95842 Ph: (916) 978-1779

Manpower Movers, a San Diego moving company, now offers a free, Eco-Crates program to help customers save money on cardboard boxes. So what exactly are Eco-Crates?

Eco-Crates are durable, reusable plastic crates that measure about three feet long, by two feet wide and two feet deep. So they hold more than the average size cardboard box. Eco-Crates are rigid and won’t bend or collapse while carrying them from the truck to the residence or office. Plus, they are conveniently stackable. Best of all Manpower Movers’ FREE Eco-Crate service will save customers $100 and $200 in cardboard box purchases on their next move.

Manpower Movers San Diego, keeps about 700 of the crates in stock — to make them available to their customers free of charge. The company says that the average moving customer uses about 30 of these convenient, environmentally friendly crates, instead of the traditional method, that requires 40 or more cardboard boxes. Manpower Movers is one of the only San Diego Moving & Storage companies offering the free Eco-Crate Service.

When customers request the Eco-Crate Service, Manpower Movers drop off their crates about seven days before their scheduled moving date. It not only saves them a lot of money, but it also saves them the stress and hassle of tracking down and transporting the 30 to 40 cardboard boxes they would need to pack their household belongings. After the customer has emptied their Eco-Crates in their new location, Manpower Movers retrieves the crates free of charge. The Eco-Crates program is efficient for Manpower Movers, too, saving the company from having to stock and discard thousands of cardboard boxes each month.

Prior to making the move to Eco-Crates, Manpower was sending about 120 cardboard boxes per day — about 3600 per month — either to a recycling center or into the trash bin. The Eco-Crate program is a rare example of a planet-friendly service that reduces waste, saves customers money and doesn’t require any government subsidies.

Headquartered at 7960 Silverton Avenue Suite 125, San Diego, CA 92126, Manpower Movers serves customers in San Diego, Carmel Valley, La Jolla and Orange Counties. For more information, visit

Most people don’t think of dentists as being green, or even that dentists need to be green, but dentists account for 3.7 million tons of mercury and other chemical waste each year. Mercury is an extremely harmful substance, and often times the mercury gets disposed into our water system.

Carmichael Dentist, who specializes in Invisalign procedures, says there should be separators that keep the mercury out of our water system. Additionally, if dentists recycle their equipment and waste they could actually make money in the process. There are companies who buy waste products and equipment. It’s not uncommon for a dentist to save fifty thousand a year by simply recycling their products.

The best way to encourage your dentist to become more green is to ask them at your next visit if they recycle their waste and used equipment. The more information you can gather and the more questions you ask might plant the seed for your dentist to look into the practice of going green with a little more urgency. Mercury in our water ways is a problem, and is contaminating our wild life, our drinking water, and our ourselves. Lets all work together and do our part to make our planet a safer and cleaner place.

Editor’s Note: This blog was written by the PR staff at D&D Windows in Sacramento. D&D Windows provides families with great, quality window replacement services in Sacramento CA. With over 40 years experience, D&D Windows can help homeowners find the perfect windows for their home.

A local doors and windows start up in Sacramento CA is doing their part to go green. Now this is a different take on going green than most people would expect, but nonetheless it’s green. The way in which they operate is traditional to most door and window companies, but what they do differently is make green products.

The door and window company is called D&D Windows. They specialize in custom windows that help save energy. The windows they produce focus on insulating the house so that neither hot or cold air can get in. The idea is that if the windows are insulated people will save on their energy bills.

In the long run that can lead to a tremendous savings. On a monthly basis the windows themselves wouldn’t add up to a huge savings, but factored in over time the cost really adds up. D&D Windows Inc services Sacramento Roseville El Dorado Hills and Rocklin with quality green windows and doors.

Vienna Property Management is quickly becoming known for offering green property management services. The company, who is based out of Rocklin, CA, is doing their part to go green. From hybrid electric cars, and online payment systems for their rental units, Vienna Property Management is leading its field with utilizing green technologies.

The green initiative started about two years ago, when Vienna Property Management who was located in El Dorado Hills, Lincoln, Citrus Heights and Sacramento at the time, decided to start using an ipad for all their rental agreements. They decided to switch from paper to digital to minimize the amount of paper products they were using. When a new renter moves into one of their units instead of using paper, they have the renter sign the agreement on their ipad and then email the rental agreement to the renters inbox.

After a few months of using this process, Vienna PM quickly decided to do its part to become as green as possible. Now a green property management company doesn’t sound like much since property management companies don’t build anything, but Vienna is definitely doing it’s part. I commend them for their effort. As business owners, there should be an inherent responsibility to this planet. It’s not everyday that you see a small business go green just for the sake of going green.
