The Curve - Environmentally friendly ideas can be found everywhere
The Augusta University Campus Recreation Center would like to introduce The Curve! This treadmill is unlike any other because there is no motor, there are no buttons, and it is entirely manual. You could definitely say it runs on sweat and determination!! Economically friendly, facilities like the Campus Recreation Center save 100% on electrical costs!!

The Curve gets results! The Curve's manual operation has been proved to burn up to 30% more calories than motorized treadmills, engaging more muscles for a superior workout. From walkers to serious athletes, nothing else compares. It is made possible by Woodway's patented running surface. The Slat Belt system is near frictionless and allows the belt to glide. Combine that with an innovative curved running surface and users are able to control their pace at will. To speed up simply start running, to slow down, allow yourself to drift down the curve. It is all about body position and gravity.

Green Lesson Plans
Greening Schools was a joint effort of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IL EPA) and the Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC). The purpose of the project was to help schools provide a safe and healthy environment. The project was also designed to provide teachers with standards-based tools to introduce the concepts of waste reduction and pollution prevention to students

Environmentally Friendly Cars
The environmentally friendly car (also known as the green car, or eco friendly car) is a vehicle that emits low carbon compounds when it runs. The low emission makes the environment safe because changes in climate and health hazards that result from the inhalation of carbon compounds are greatly reduced. Environmentally friendly cars use less toxic fuels such as ethanol, biodiesel and natural gas. Apart from being environmentally friendly, green cars also have the advantage of saving money since the alternative fuels they use do not burn as fast as the conventional types. These features form one of the major reasons why many people are now opting for it. A fuel efficient car is often considered to be environmentally friendly, relative to less-efficient vehicles.

Story of Bottled Water
