At Home with Greenification

January 8, 2009

This blog is being written at the computer of a favorite niece at her home in a small rural town.  My niece and her husband are a struggling young couple with two small children and a desire for her to be able to stay home and raise well-balanced, productive and contributing adults.  I just asked them if they had any plans to Greenify this year?

“Well, we just bought CFL light bulbs and switched those out on all our lamps and fixtures,” said Niece.  Her husband added that he's still focusing his attention on his electric car that he's been alternately building and burning out the engine.  (He's quite handy, and truly the consummate recycler with finding ways to change and reuse different items.)

They aren't a wealthy pair.  He was laid off late last year and fortunately, has since found other employment for some of his graphic arts and animation talent and skills.  But he's still poking around for the “perfect job.”

But they want to keep the beautiful area (adjacent to several national parks) unspoiled and reduce their carbon footprint.  I overheard them discussing the roof they recently had replaced, saying that the old one apparently sealed in the heat much better than its replacement.  The old roof was effectively gathering heat and warming the rest of the house. In order to be energy efficient, it seems they may need to consider adding more insulation.

They are also fortunate that they don't need to drink bottled water.  The area where they live is in a remote and arid part of a western state.  Water bubbles up from natural aquifers, tasting sweet and pure. By drinking it and giving it to their children, they are getting a few natural minerals and the little bit of fluoride (beneficial to their children's teeth) provided by the tiny community in which they live.

It's a good life they have, here in this remote area where neighbors often don't lock doors at night and crime is almost unheard of.   But they are doing what little bits they can to Greenify: light bulbs that consume less energy, an electric car (sometimes!), energy efficiency in heating and air-conditioning, and fresh, good tasting, healthy water from their taps.  It's the little things that make life and Greenification worth doing, don't you agree?
