Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Make sure to get that Easter egg and your Irish lunch and dinner.
On a green note, Brooklyn Brewery claims to be the ‘real’ Green Beer with its brewing facility souped up with wind-generated electricity:
Brooklyn Brewery, located on Brewer’s Row in Brooklyn, New York, is one of a handful of breweries around the country that uses sustainable energy when producing its beer.
Its choice of method is wind power, which provides 100 percent of the brewery’s energy needs, making the 1,658,000 gallons of beer it produces green year-round. Brooklyn Brewery’s energy bills are 10 percent to 13 percent higher than they would be otherwise, but its operators say leaning on alternative energy just makes sense.
When I use to work at Comfile, I did work with a lot of these engineers that were working on wind-generated electricity. It IS very interesting subject from engineering perspective also.
These days, it’s very common to seeing more businesses going green. Especially since today is about being ‘green’, whether that’s about getting super drunk or saving earth, it’s a good day to celebrate the greenness.
On the side note, we are glad to announce that Keetsa, one of the green blogs I manage, has got its products on The View show on ABC! Make sure to check it out as one of my favorite HGTV green hosts, Carter Oosterhouse is the one telling people about Keetsa eco-friendly mattresses.
Why are/aren’t you wearing green today?
It is nice that you are plugging for the green movement. Energy from renewable resources may well be more expensive than conventional sources, at present. In the next few years, sufficient work would have been done to reduce the costs involved to make it quite attractive. In fact with oil prices going north so fast, this process can only get speeded up.
Yes, I think “green” movement is good for any company, even if they are trying to use that for marketing.
