In a world full of distractions that keep our attention away from pressing issues (Facebook, Instagram, reality television, and the overall day-to-day attitude of surviving), oftentimes we don’t pay attention to the negative effects our lives have on the climate until some kind of natural disaster is shown on the news.

The thought of having renovations of any kind performed can appear intimidating, especially to people who know what they need, yet don’t know where to start. An upgrade focused on improving energy usage (translation: money saving) for a home or business can prove even more daunting – but only if you lack the knowledge necessary to make those upgrades work for you. Your initial investment towards eco-friendly upgrades should yield long-term returns, while simultaneously producing short-term savings that benefit you in the day-to-day aspects of life. One mistake resulting from lack of product knowledge or information on a manufacturer or contractor can cost you and your company thousands – even millions, depending on the size of your organization – in lost revenue.

In stark contrast, the person who plans out a clear idea of the renovation project ahead, has a solid completion plan in place, and remains armed with current product knowledge and industry regulations feels a great sense of excitement and anticipation about the project ahead. The tips provided by Live Green Bean will infuse you with that same enthusiasm, and leave you feeling confident about your renovation project from beginning to end.

Sustainability.  Man, that’s a boring word. As passionate as we are here at Live Green Bean about it, we’ve found ourselves struggling with how to bring it down to a relatable level. We want people to understand it beyond a definition, beyond what they see on pretty green and white eco-friendly sites. We want our people to care, because our survival depends on it.

So what’s our real problem with sustainability? The word itself.  By that, I mean it has no real meaning to us. It’s just an official-sounding term that we hear politicians, activists, and pundits spout when they want us to buy solar panels or stop driving our cars everywhere, but no one has really made it mean something to us, the regular people.

And as long as it doesn’t mean anything to us, we won’t be willing to make the necessary changes that we need to survive. This is a major problem that needs to be addressed now, especially in our urban areas.
