Greenify Your Business Travel – Part 1

June 3, 2008

Eco-tourism or eco-travel is becoming all the rage for vacations. But what about the business traveler who is concerned about the environment but at the same time needs electricity to charge a Blackberry or use a laptop for hours on end?

More and more car rental agencies are purchasing hybrids and other environmentally friendly cars. If your business takes you to Maui, rent a Bio-Beetle which runs on 100% vegetable oil from sustainable sources. EV Rental  has a 100% hybrid fleet with locations in California, Arizona, and soon, Las Vegas. Fox  works with EV Rental to offer hybrids at all Fox locations. Enterprise offers the Toyota Prius for rent. If car services are more your style, Eco-Limo is available in Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. New York City has OZO-Car which bills itself as an eco-luxury private car service.

To Greenify your air travel can be a little more complicated. Business travelers log over 240 billion air miles a year, generating over 160 million tons of carbon dioxide. Air travel as a whole is responsible for 3.5% of carbon dioxide produced by humans and is the fastest growing source of CO2. Some companies are buying carbon offsets from or similar companies to neutralize the business miles traveled. Carbon offsets are a good start, but the reality is they are not going to help quite as much as they are touted to. We need to plant over 3 million trees this year to absorb the CO2 generated in 2008, but it will take 70 years for those 3 million trees to absorb the all of that C02. When looking for a carbon offset company, check that they incorporate several ways of obtaining offsets.

Many hotels have been offering guests the opportunity to conserve water by not changing the sheets or towels every day. There are a number of hotels which go a step further. Orbitz has launched an eco section which will you find green friendly hotels. Hotels which have earned the Energy Star seal (they use 40% less energy than conventional buildings and emit 35% less CO2) are noted. The Lenox Hotel in Boston utilizes energy efficient lights, natural cleaners and air fresheners, zero VOC (volatile organic compound) paint, local products, waterless urinals and much more. Fairmont Hotels have a company-wide Green Partnership Program. Other chains which are striving for environmental excellence include Oberoi, Hilton, Intercontinental, Mandarin Oriental, Hyatt International, Swissôtel, Starwood Hotels and Radisson.

CO2激光(CO2 laser / 二氧化碳激光)的波長是10600nm,照射到皮膚上會被皮膚的水份吸收,瞬間將皮膚有問題的組織氣化。CO2激光可以用來消除各種皮膚問題包括疣、癦、痣、脂溢性角化、粉刺和汗管瘤等。當治療後,您的皮膚需要5至10天時間復原。期間保持傷口清潔便可。優點:CO2激光所切割的深度比刮除術較深,亦較精準。可以處理較深層的皮膚問題,例如去除癦、油脂粒、肉粒、疣、珍珠疣、角質增生等。其復原亦較快,減少留下疤痕的機會。它最大的優點在於,能夠進一步減少激光治療過程當中的熱損傷反應,提升了激光治療的安全性,治療過程中幾乎沒有疼痛感
