Most of the world’s electricity is derived from power stations that utilize fossil fuels like oil and coal. The process of producing energy creates a lot of greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide and methane. Clean energy is important for the future of the earth.

It’s these greenhouse gases that are causing the earth’s weather patterns to become more extreme. Some experts believe that the changes in weather patterns will eventually threaten the world we live in and the habitats of all living things.

Why nonrenewable energy sources are bad

Non-renewable energy sources, such as coal, oil, and gas have changed the way human beings live over the last couple of hundred years. There’s no doubt our lives would have been very different if these had not been discovered.

But we stand a crisis point.

We can simply use what’s available and as soon as they’ve been used up, that’s it! Perhaps that may not happen in our lifetime but we need to to be responsible about preserving the lifestyles of future generations.

Not only are we in danger of running out of resources, these sources of energy are also polluting the earth.

Importance of clean energy

Moving towards a world of clean energy is essential for the survival of earth.

We’ve already found ways to tap into and harness the energy of the sun, ocean, and wind.

These sources of electricity create only small amounts of greenhouse gasses and are renewable, in other words, they can be used over and over again.

Solar, water and wind are examples of fresh energy resources.

Other ideas

Governments are also researching different approaches to help save the world. One of these is to make companies that pollute the environment pay for their contamination.

Other thoughts include providing funding for tree plantations and tax breaks to encourage individuals to use less energy.

We live in an age where the vacuum cleaner is an essential part of our daily lives. These cleaning machines help us clean up our homes in a few minutes and are a necessity in an age where everyone is busy. There are all kinds, from barrel to stick to canister vacuums and even specialty pet hair vacuums. Most people don’t think about the electricity a vacuum cleaner consumes and most vacuum cleaners are not environmentally friendly. Here are some green vacuum cleaners to consider.

1 Cardboard Vacuum

A cardboard vacuum can help keep your home clean and an innovative brand Vax allows you to vacuum up the dirt and dust in an eco-friendly way. This revolutionary vacuum cleaner was created with recycled plastic using corrugated cardboard panels!

2 Miele Hybrid

The Miele Hybrid is a high-performance vacuum cleaner that is gentle on the environment. The hybrid is powered by lightweight and strong lithium-ion batteries, providing you with a handy cord-free cleaning encounter. The cells have sufficient juice to maintain the 1,800-watt motor powered for great 20 minutes. To prevent overheating, the engine automatically stops working at a specific temperature and invisibly just after it’s cooled down. If the batteries run out of power, it is simple to control them with the power cord for 3 hours. Therefore, bid goodbye to all those electricity swallowing dirt-sucking creatures eternally and bring home the newest Miele Hybrid and also do your bit for the environment.

3 GTec AirRam

The Gtech AirRam is a high energy, light-weight cordless vacuum cleaner which comes packed with a specialized compression technology that will help save energy. This technology aids in collecting dust from compact bales that you may easily throw in the bin. Adding into the green credentials is the simple fact that the vacuum cleaner is powered with a professional-grade Li-ion battery. It looks like the potential for vacuuming is still here!

Electrolux’s cool initiative

Vacs from the Sea

Electrolux designed ‘Vacs In the Sea’ to increase consciousness about the impact of plastics on our oceans. For this particular green initiative, the world’s leading vacuum cleaner company sent teams out to five seas around the globe to collect plastic and care for the environment. The waste plastic sheeting has been used to create a limited edition set of vacuum cleaners which not only does the job adequately but looks good too.
