Closing the sustainability loop. Energy Star Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) consume 75 percent less electricity than incandescent bulbs and last 10 times longer. One CFL can save $30 in energy costs over its lifetime, reduce coal consumption by 200 pounds, and prevent more than 400 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. But sustainability is about more than using energy efficient products. It also carries a responsibility to prevent waste of useful materials and to reduce the impact of manufacturing on the environment. For instance, producing an aluminum can from recycled cans consumes 95% less energy than making that same can with raw materials.
Chapter One Summer of Love I WAS DRIVING THROUGH THE PITCH BLACK VIRGINIA night, down the perfectly flat blacktop that was once a railroad track, across that high bridge over the ravine, thinking about the details of how one night I was going to drive off it.

"The Dexim P-Flip is the best solution out there for watching a movie on your iPhone or iPod touch while simultaneously charging your device. When you connect your Apple device, it instantly begins to receive a charge from the built-in 2,000 mAh lithium polymer battery. Then you have the option of positioning your iPhone vertically to use it as a speakerphone while your phone charges — or you can turn the P-Flip on its side and watch a movie, without having to worry about the battery not lasting until the end (especially great for taking on the airplane). The battery charges with a mini-USB to USB 2.0 cable, so you can connect it to your computer, car charger, or your own Apple USB power adapter. It folds up to a very compact size, so it’s convenient to take on trips. The P-Flip can also function as a very nice charging station on your desk.
