Abstract:
Earth Day has taken on much more meaning during this first decade of the 21st century. Historians will look back at the year 2000 and write about it as the beginning of an enlightened period when climate change, protecting the environment, and reducing carbon emissions became the hot button topics for nations around the world as we realized our need to protect the planet upon which we depend.

New Technology Makes it Pay to “Go Green”

NAPLES, FL | Posted on April 3rd, 2008

So what does that mean to each of us on an everyday basis? It means we continue to look for ways to reduce our negative impact on the environment. We now think ‘hybrid' when buying a new car, use our recycling bins on a regular basis, and seek out more and more ‘green' products. Unfortunately many of us have found that ‘Going Green' is often expensive.

Wouldn't it be great if, while we were saving the environment, we could also be saving ourselves some money at the same time? You can. Living a more earth friendly life doesn't have to be a strain on your bank account.

One of the newest green products comes from one of the newest sciences - nanotechnology - and it has the double benefit of not only reducing energy use, but also saving you money at the same time. Nansulate® is a clear, water-based, low VOC coating which acts as a thermal barrier to heat transfer and also provides resistance to mold and moisture. The patented coating is thoroughly tested and well documented as environmentally safe and health friendly. The money savings result from reduced heating and cooling costs...and by reducing your energy use you also reduce the related carbon emissions.

"One Connecticut Nansulate customer reduced his home heating oil use by 41% annually. This made quite an impact on his wallet while also significantly reducing his carbon footprint," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Operations & Marketing for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "The fact that our coating is easily applied by homeowners and is cost effective, means that return on investment is generally in less than a year. Our customers consistently report energy savings between 20%-40%, which is something we are very proud of."

This Earth Day take a few moments to visit www.nansulate.com or call 800-767-3998 and learn about how the newest technology has been reducing energy use across the country and making it cost effective to ‘Go Green.'
