Title: Maintain Your Garage Better With Garage Door Threshold and Garage Door Seals

Green world=green garage? 

From offsetting your carbon footprints to neutralizing emissions, we don’t stop hearing about the environment nowadays, do we? Despite the fact I have never really understood any of the terminology, it has become most frightfully tiresome and rather a bore.  I think the last straw was when I heard about the cow farting emission gag. I honestly thought it was one big April fool’s joke.  But apparently not, cows do fart and enough of ‘em will emit harmful gasses to the atmosphere. Well there you have it; the answer is, eat more beef. Which in turn will use more energy to cook, cause more flatulence amongst humans- who will die anyway of mad cow disease. Today I’d like to talk you about green garages.  One of my favourite days of the year is Earth Day, this auspicious occasion comes and goes each year on the March Equinox and is a day to remind folks on earth that “ This day is devoted to the preservation of the harmony in nature and yet draws upon the triumphs of technology, the measurement of time, and instantaneous communication through space”. I rest my case. Garages on the other hand, are very real. Maintaining a good garage can be beneficial to your lively hood, well-being and pocket, not to mention the “E” word. 

To make your garage more “E”-friendly, here are a few tips:

1. Leave your car in the garage.

Don’t use your car to commute-take the train! If you have public transport –use it! If it sucks like it does where I live. Use it and file complaints about it.

2. Leave your mower in the garage.

Let your grass grow longer. (For a while longer that is-we don’t want to attract snakes).

3. Ride your bike.

Use your bike to go shopping or just walk, where you not only get to exercise (I know you need it)-but you get to be friendly to “E” whilst saving money. Perfect!

4. Insulate your garage.

Use garage door seals and threshold seals. (important)

Companies such as Garage Accessories R US are offering garage sealing kits which allows you easy and simple installation of garage door thresholds and garage door seals. All tools and adhesives plus an easy-to-understand step- by-step instruction guide are included with these kits.

Threshold seals can stop these draughts and help reduce your energy costs. In this way, you can not only save money but also help “E”.

5.Hazardous materials.

Label/store or dispose of hazardous materials correctly. (V. important)

Refer to the instructions, check the latest information with your local recycle centers.  When disposing of hazardous materials, never pour them down the sink, mix them, play with them and never just sling them away in a garbage bin.

And a final note. When it comes to living the “E” word-whatever your angle is, or whatever your opinion is. The earth will be a better place present and future if we all played the game. So don’t just do something, stand there!
