    Craig Bramscher: Are you planning to sell your electrical bikes outside America?

    Wow. This is cool. I also wanted to embrace green technology but how can do that in my small financing business? (Still thinking)

    I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your blog on green technology. It is imperative that we as a nation do all we can to improve our economy in congruence with our enviromental needs. Supporting that need with investments and advertising increases public awareness of transformational technology. The consumer will demand the better technology, and green becomes consumer driven. Ultimately, it is not politics that will save our economy and eco-status, it is our use of green technology that will.

    In the course of trying to get out the news about a recyclable, lifetime roof that can save the consumer 10 to 12 degrees of electricity bills, and-enviromental pollution; the industrial echelon have answered with the préverbal, “we’ve always done it this way.” The rub is that construction companies are not willing to part with their oil consuming roofs (an average of 14-15 barrels of oil per roof, then recycled every 15-20 years),

    Please visit our intro to our new invention in the ultimate green roofing technology & if you feel comfortable, just pass the word. It’s very important that America is aware of an alternative to expensive sub-standard conventional roofing.

    That’s very interesting. Small business need every edge they can get in this economy. They are struggling with bank lending, sales, and advertising budgets.

    Using Green technologies to contribute to a better environment is an excellent idea especially for small businesses.

    We are trying to take that further via our El Projecto Esmeradas, a social and environmental project in Ecuador, aiming to help businesses raise their business. image and gain recognition for their support for green solutions.
