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!

It’s nothing to be proud of. But it’s true. And so, if we want things to be more fair, it helps to make fairness […]
  • The gap between good and famous
    When there were gatekeepers, the gap was smaller. People who knew that they could create fame were careful (often) to bestow it on things and people that they believed had something to offer. As the race for fame becomes ever more breakneck, though, that requirement is fading. While it’s a convenient shortcut, the signal of […]
