"Why use solar & renewable energy?"
Here's something that everyone agrees with (democrats, republicans, independents and even non-voters...): let's use more clean energy.
We know that in the past oil was developed as a fuel to drive trains, factories, planes, automobiles, diesel motors for electricity; but, as the oil begins to run out (spoiling much of the world on its way), let's start to segue to solar and use more renewable energy.
Here are some questions (below) we all could be asking:
When we breathe in toxins we get sick...
- common knowledge now... is it only polluted in poorer areas?
Do wealthy people have bad air and water too? How can we convince corporations and government agencies to legislate more environmental justice in the world?
With an increase in the use of renewable energy fuels, will we have healthier air and water?*
Photo from the U.S. Environmental Protection AgencyHow can we stop polluting our oceans (certainly we can call one or two an unhealthy ocean?
Can we build oil pipelines, tanks and ships that are strong enough to prevent spills? How can marine animals live when things like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch floats around poisoning organisms?
Who knows just how much marine life has become extinct from plastics, pesticides and petroleum-based products?

For ocean reef lovers...
Are there alternatives to the oil-based "run off" pesticides & chemicals that flow into our ocean from the street storm drains? With plastic bags being thrown into the ocean how will we keep our oceans pristine?
Are we able to keep air and water clean?
Are you able to write or call your local Environmental Protection Agency, and other community government representatives and tell them how using non-toxic pesticides and non-petroleum energy products will make a difference

Will more solar and renewable energy help to keep animals alive?
Endangered bird walking:

Careless use of petroleum chemical pesticide products:
a hazard to everyone... And the inconvenient truth is, pesticides, chemicals, are all causing our health to detoriate... Please use more renewable energy products, so Okapis Xantia and baby Mbutiokapi (picture to left), will grow up drinking water free from pesticides.

The spirits of ancient native Americans
are kept alive in the petro-glyphs around the U.S. They may not survive when more pollution begins to cause erosion... this petro-glyph artwork on the rock has been in New Mexico for a long, long time... and is part of native American heritage. This is just one heritage among thousands that need to be preserved - isn't there anything we can do?
Thanks to NPS for petroglyph photo
Pollution in the canopy:
How long will the roots of these trees be free from pollution?
How long before trees and plants are considered an "endangered species"?*
Extinction of cute and cuddly koalas
What will happen when this koala bear - cutest animal on the planet - takes in a breath of polluted air in the future? - like many of us, we might be breathing in the same air laced with toxic pesticides carried by the wind and water...

Using products, equipment and appliances that lessen our impact (or carbon footprint) on the environment should be made a priority by consumers. Every little bit helps endangered species and everybody else... Consumers have the power to buy and use renewable energy products that enhance the quality of our air, water, earth, food and health, rather than harm it. *
#2 The economics of solar/renewable energy:
Green is good for the economy... We hope that renewable energy manufacturers make products as affordable as
|#3Solar does not spoil the environment when spilled:|
Companies that are based in the U.S. not only keeps business in our home country, but it's easier for technical support and returning items. Items coming into the U.S. must comply with certain American trade standards, which makes for better merchandise. (Not to mention shipping costs kept to a minimum...)
#5 Quality renewable energy goods, reliable technical support:
This is what we look for when we offer products from reliable companies.
#6 Discount to non-profit organizations:
Educators - teachers and students: contact us - before making your purchase.
