The World Writes Our Mission Statement.
The goal of U.S. Green Technology, which was founded in January 2009, is to intersect Main Street with Green Street by focusing on green technology news, new green start-ups, green technological invention and green jobs. We also highlight green building, green manufacturing, changes in green business, green social media campaigns and the spread of the green movement throughout entertainment.
Why Green Technology Is Needed
Green technology has moved to mainstream commercialization, and this is occurring at a rapid pace and at a critical time. The world population continues to expand, lingering at about 7 billion, and this continues to put strain on the environment. The growing number of large cities featuring 25 million residents across the globe particularly poses the need for more energy in concentrated areas as well.
The growing human population has altered the composition of the atmosphere by emitting several harmful greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), through the burning of fossil fuels such as gas, coal and oil. These gases trap heat in the atmosphere, causing climate change. Climate change has many negative effects on agriculture, human health, fresh water sources and the lives of organisms.
How Green Technology Can Help
Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy will make up a growing share of power sources used in the 21st century to help to combat the negative effects of fossil fuels. In addition, more individual efforts are being made to “go green,” or to take a small part in the mass effort to better the environment. This includes recycling to reduce the amount of wastes sent to landfills, thus decreasing levels of water and soil pollution in America. Green technology efforts also result in economy-stimulating green jobs, which are becoming more prominent throughout the United States.
U.S. Green Technology’s Mission
The green technology industry is responding to the need to preserve the planet for generations to come – bringing its ideas to the mainstream almost overnight – and U.S. Green Technology is seeking out the latest in the movement to share with you. Our mission is to make you aware of what you can do at home to take care of the earth, bringing Green Street to Main Street, right where you live. If you would like to learn more about what you can do to combat environmental issues, please feel free to contact us. Together, we can save our earth!
An increasing number of industry experts contribute to U.S. Green Technology’s website by writing on a variety of current topics in green technologies, renewable energy and green products as well as career and job search issues.
