Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 67

I’m sharing “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas.

You can have them for free.

Be a Linchpin.  Develop something: ship, ship, ship!

Hot Water:

If you use a water heater, you are wasting water and energy, just keeping all that water heated throughout the many hours it’s not being used and waiting for it to reach the point of use.

If you heat your water with a tankless/on-demand heat exchange system you’re still probably wasting water, waiting for the hot water to reach you.

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

Somewhere in the middle there’s got to be an opportunity for improvement. 

In the meantime, try to turn the faucet from hot to cold BEFORE you’re don drawing that hot water. 

Otherwise, there’s a few gallons of water in the line that’s been heated that won’t be used…it’s just going to cool down.

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Hot!  Sustainable!

Eyes that belong to humans, to critics, to people hoping for the best. Mostly, to people who expect you to keep your promises. That’s part […]
  • Fear of kohlrabi
    What do you do when you face an alien looking vegetable? It’s all over the farmer’s market, it’s cheap and plentiful and you’ve never had it before. Most people walk right on by. What’s the cost of being wrong, though? The economic cost is tiny. Make a mistake with a kohlrabi and you’re out about […]
