US Postal Service Goes Green

July 16, 2009

Who owns one of the world’s largest vehicle fleets? Here’s a hint: it’s not Google or even Nascar. It’s the United States Postal Service, purveyors of your daily mail and walkers (er…drivers) of mail routes nationwide. With a fleet of aging, fuel-inefficient automobiles, the USPS recently announced a huge undertaking: replacing 6,500 vehicles with more efficient vehicles, including 900 hybrids and 1,000 alternative fuel vehicles.

Greenbarns - Let Your Horse Be Green

While the US Green Building Council (USGBC) does not yet have LEED certification for agricultural buildings, simply putting solar panels on the roofs of these barns could have a significant impact on the environmental footprint of ranches and farms around the world. A single barn roof of solar panels can often power an entire farm in the Midwest, and most farms have 2-3 barns.

Big Dig House Completed

July 6, 2009

In 2006, the house was still in its planning stages: a house built with more than 600,000 lbs of construction materials recycled from the Big Dig highway project in Boston. The “Big Dig” is the unofficial name of the Central Artery/Tunnel Project, the chief highway through the heart of Boston and the most expensive highway project in the United States. The Big Dig House is literally made from much of the waste materials from I-93 overcrossings.

The Big Dig House - dont drive here anymore

The Big Dig House - don't drive here anymore

The final cost was approximately $150 per square foot, with most of the materials provided only for the cost of shipping. Single Speed Design used this project to prove the point that infrastructure materials can be salvaged and reused to create amazing structures. Most of the materials were used as-is from the I-93 teardown, so they created a structure significantly stronger than necessary for a residence. As such, the house features an amazing garage-top garden. Not too shabby!

Solar Powered Vessels Ships


  • 'save 142 million tonnes of CO2 a year, equivalent to about 15 per cent of Germany’s total emissions. 

  • The problem is huge. Merchant ships, which carry 90 per cent of the world’s merchandise, produce more sulphur dioxide than all the cars and lorries on the planet. And, according to the International Council on Clean Transportation, they also generate about 27 per cent of the world’s nitrogen oxide emissions. 
  • Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, the Norwegian fleet management company, has designed a green flagship, the Orcelle, which will use rigid, rotating sails to capture the strongest winds. 

  • When the wind drops the sails can be used as solar panels. But the company admits that it could take 15 years before the ship is developed.

  • The first motorboat that attains the gliding phase with an electric power train.
  • The Series 560 Sundeck Electro has everything that the 560 Sundeck offers. The only difference is the electric power train that attains speeds of up to 35 km/h. Starting at 25 km/h, the 560 Sundeck Electro rises to the typical Boesch gliding phase and can even be used to pull a skier. Now you can have an elegant boat for cruising smaller lakes with strict combustion engine regulations. It sets standards in terms of noise and emissions. CE-certified, design category D.
