Progress. The world is full of progress. With all of the progress being made in every single country, and even out of this world with the progress being made in space exploration, what kind of progress is being made in the fight to save the environment? Do the companies and engineers making all this progress realize that they have a big part in destroying the environment?
Apparently some of them do. I say that because some of the engineers have come up with ways to build buildings that have a smaller carbon footprint. Everyone and everything has a carbon footprint. It is our priority to ensure that our carbon footprint is as small as it can possibly be. These engineers have discovered a way to even build environmentally friendly apartment buildings. You can find some of these buildings in Staten Island.
Staten Island green apartments are ones that have been designed to make the most of the building itself for energy conservation. By this I mean that the insulation in the building is the best it can be to conserve energy. The buildings may also be designed to use the materials they have been constructed of to keep the temperature inside the building at a more steady level. The shower heads will be water conserving ones. The same will apply for all toilets, washing machines and dishwashers. Windows and doors will have proper seals and be made of a thick glass that will not transfer heat or coolness to the outside, therefore conserving energy. The engineers may have even designed the buildings to include solar panels for clean energy production. They will also have included the proper receptacles for the recycling of anything and everything that possibly can be recycled. In short, they will have provided the building with every amenity possible to not only reduce the carbon footprint, but also to make your life easy as well.
