Green Marketing – Tapping Ecologically Conscious Consumers

August 14, 2020 Off By Crystal Watkins

Every year, as soon as it gets cold, you turn on your furnace. When that next energy bill comes from your electric or gas company, the price is astronomical. It is more than you afford and it is more than the bill was at the same time last year. Why do these utility companies charge so much? There are two reasons for this. One, because few companies take advantage of cheap, renewable energy resources such as solar and wind power. And two, utility companies charge high prices because they can.

We need to lose the idea that being self-sufficient means sacrificing comfort. That to embrace the idea you have to produce everything you need yourself. That you can’t get started unless you have all the space, funds and desire to just drop out of society and isolate yourself. That the philosophy is, and can only be, embraced by “hippies”. Who have become so idealistically green that they have forgotten that the world is so over populated that it is impossible for it to be sustainable for all of us to join them, and have made the idea unpopular by the way they look down their nose at the rest of us.

The sun is big – it forms about 99% of the matter in the solar system. It produces most the energy needed for life on earth today. The energy the earth receives from the sun is just a very tiny portion of the energy produced by it. Most of the sun’s green energy radiates out into the empty void of space.

Since 1977, the Montana State Fish is the Westslope Cutthroat Trout. The State bird is the Western Meadowlark, the flower is the Bitterroot, the state animal is the grizzly bear and the tree is the Ponderosa Pine.

The Capital of Montana is Helena, and the state flag is a blue background with the seal under “Montana.” The seal shows the beautiful scenery and what early pioneers did. A pick, shovel and plow depict the mining and farming history of the state. A sun is rising over the mountains and forests, and the Great Falls of the Missouri river can be seen.

After talking about fossil fuel and what will happen if we are running out of fuel ( so-called energy crisis ), let us go straightly into our topic today, the renewable energy. Normally, renewable energy sources like wind power, tidal power and hydropower is used to generate electricity.

Try drying your laundry outside in the sun whenever possible, rather than using a dryer. The smell of clothes dried in the fresh air cannot be topped. They will feel and smell fresher than machine-dried clothes. You will also save money on utility bills by doing this.

There are also many means of building and creating your own form of renewable energy, such as solar panels, wind generators, and micro hydropower. A lot of these can be done for little money, and help create energy on smaller scales.
