Investment in recycling and green waste management | Green Investments | Forestry Investments | Power Generation

Green investments are a relatively new phenomenon. As people realise that their kids could be inheriting a polluted planet and with climate change a serious risk, green investments are a sensible strategy for the long term. There are many types of green investment.

Forestry Investments

Forestry and timber investments are a great way to get a long term return on your capital. There are many socially responsible forestry and timber companies who offer green investments. Trees are planted using your investment and then you see a return when the trees are harvested. This can take between 10 to 20 years, depending on the forestry investment term, type of tree and plot size. Insurance against fire and storm is usually included. Green investments such as timber are environmentally friendly; they will make your family CO2 neutral.

Power Generation

Green forms of power generation, such as solar, wave and tidal offer a great green investment opportunity. Many power companies offer special investment packages which guarantee that your investment will only be used for green technologies.


Investment in recycling and green waste management technologies are environmentally and sustainable. Energy is saved on by recycling and advanced waste management techniques reduce pollution and require less space for landfill.

There are many ways in which green investments can help you and your family; not only financially but also as a way to secure your children and the planet's long term future.

How Industry Helps Keep Our Environment Clean

Kids today are much healthier in the past in part because industry has found new techniques to keep our air and environment clean. No longer do large chimneys belch out toxic black smoke. Instead there are companies who make products such as wet scrubbers and chemical scrubbers for use in industrial pollution control.

Not only do they remove odours, they also remove dangerous chemicals such as hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, amines and particles. This makes the atmosphere and environment much safer for you and your children.

Some scrubbers use chemicals as catalysts to clean the gas that passes through them. There are also bioscrubbers which are most often used in remove the smell from waste water treatment processes. These use special bacteria and enzymes to remove odours and other harmful products.

Many chemical, pharmaceutical, electronic and nuclear companies use wet scrubbers to comply with pollution and health and safety laws. Because of this kids and nature can thrive in a non-toxic environment.

Why History Matters - The National Trust’s ‘One Day in History’

This is just a quickie to pass on a bit of info I heard on radio a while back on the way to work in a hazy foggy morn – have you heard about The National Trust’s ‘One Day in History’?

Basically they’re asking people all across the country to write a brief diary entry for today. All the entries will be collected together and stored in the British Library for historians of the future to see what we were like.

The URL is and all the instructions are on there. So go on, stick your diary on there and you never know, your entry might be read by the future equivalent of Tony Robinson in 1000 years!
