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!

  • The power (and risk) of charismatic ideas
    Charisma is a magical power. It enables humans to hotwire connection and build bridges long before the facts on the ground are clear. Charisma creates rock stars, powerful scientists and con men, too. Misused, charisma is often the road to tragedy, because it causes us to suspend disbelief and follow a leader we should have […]
  • Rationalizing your project
    “I followed the recipe exactly, and it failed.” That’s how many reviews of online recipes begin. Then the poster explains that he replaced the sour cream with yogurt (it’s what he had in the fridge), that he replaced the wheat flour with rice flour (it’s gluten-free) and he used the toaster oven instead of a […]
