Building DIY Gardening


Visiting a Home Depot in the US recently, President Obama said “Energy Efficiency is sexy”.

Clever use of buzz words to get his message to the American people (and us, thanks to the internet).

Insulation is slightly erotic as it is a type of blanketing… if you find that sexy of course.

This phrase will wind its way into the consumer’s subconscious, such that if they are thinking of remodeling by painting or replacing a cupboard, they might instead recall “Energy Efficiency is sexy” and insulate instead.

Which is better for the environment as we all know! Climate change can be reduced by simple methods like home insulation, improved efficiency of cars and all machines.

Home improvement projects can be practical and save money rather than just updating the interior decoration fashions of your home.

This is very easy and cheap to do, unlike the newer high tech methods to reduce the greenhouse effect by removing – scrubbing – CO2 from the air, or change the weather with space umbrellas (I kid you not).
