EcoProducts-Smog Eating Tile

Smog Eating Tile
If there are any eco friendly products that can help to remove the smog produced by the billions of vehicles in the world, it has to be our tress. In our many cities, most of the land are been occupied by buildings and you can see millions of buildings all over the places. If only these buildings are tress that can help to remove the smog, it will be great. This product BoralPure is a unique material made onto the concrete roofing tiles and it is able to reduce the formation of smog. It might not be the best method in reduction of air pollution, but definitely helps in contributing in better quality of air for our breathing in cities. Better air quality means less contribution to diseases and deaths due to air pollutions.
Smog Converter Method
How does this works? The roof tiles are coated with a catalyst Titanium Dioxide. This catalyst when exposed to the sunlight, it can speed up oxidization of harmful NOx (smog produced by our vehicles) and convert them into Calcium Nitrates. Calcium Nitrates are settled on the roof waiting for the rain to wash it off.
Many major cities are experiencing hazy weather due to the heavy industries and lots of vehicles in the traffic jams. The haze can be sometimes be very obvious to the eyes in cities like Hong Kong and Beijing. These haze have immediate effects like coughing and difficulties in breathing. Longer terms effect can be Asthma, lung infection or even hear diseases. If most of the buildings are coated with this catalyst, we will be able to experience better quality of the air thus prolong our lives too. React now and get your home coated with this great product.

EcoProducts-Dual Flush Toilet

Dual Flush Toilet
We should promote eco friendly products in our daily lives. Our daily practices plays an important part in promoting eco friendliness and help to save our earth. A dual flush toilet is a great eco friendly product that can help to save lots of water.

Water Usage Reduction
This design give you the option of full flushing of water and half flushing of water. Most of the time, when we just urine instead of moving our bowels, we just need sufficient water to flush down the water. The half flush button will use half the water and a water saving method to flush the urine down. When we moves our bowel and need more water, that is when you use the full flush. In the new dual flush toilet, the new method of flushing is more efficient and also use less water in flushing off the waste. In both methods of flushing, it will save the water. This design has proven to save 67% of water usage in typical homes. Imagine how much water we can save? Most of the water processed for usage is for homes. If we can help to reduce this water usage, there will be a reduction of energy and material required to process wasted water, lesser catchment area will be required; resulting in more land for other developments. The only cons is the slightly higher cost in producing the dual flush toilet due to the extra parts. But considering the water savings and energy savings in the long run, this is great way that we can start in our homes to save our earth.
