Are you green in your home? Do you know what color of energy use your household is? Now you can take a quiz to find your energy color. A Simple Switch sponsored by Philips would like to see everyone become greener.
We as individuals can push corporations to create market solutions and call for action from our governments to protect the climate. But first and foremost, we must cut back on our personal energy consumption and reduce our carbon footprint, by making smart daily choices. To visualize your energy consumption we have categorized your CO2 emission into energy labels. Label A being energy efficient and label G being very energy consuming and producing a lot of CO2 emission. With this program Philips lets you discover your personal energy color and will help you to improve your own energy efficiency. Find out your personal color now. Take the quiz.
We should try and change our personal energy label from a blazing red G to a friendly green A. Changing color is a simple switch, really. Change old light bulbs for new energy efficient lighting, insulate our home, get rid of the gas guzzling SUV and carpool, there are many more ways to lower our individual CO2 emissions. And, to paraphrase astronaut Neil Armstrong, what may seem one small step for man, may prove to be a giant leap for mankind.

I took the quiz and I came out a yellow. I have some work to do to get in the green zone. Simple changes like unplugging my unused electronics instead of leaving them on standby. Walking more to the local stores instead of driving will help save emissions on those quick trips plus get me moving more too! There are lots of things to do. Consider shopping for Green products.
Feelgoodz vision is to become a global lifestyle brand that uses sales of conscious products to create positive social change around the world. How are they doing it? By adopting a stance of People, Planet, Profit. Feelgoodz makes their flip-flops from all natural rubber. The rubber trees absorb CO2 and they are consistently replanting new trees. Feelgoodz limits the amount of supplies they have shipped in from other areas. By using the natural rubber in the flip-flops, they are biodegradable. Don't throw them away, recycle or reuse them in other ways. The natural rubber also makes them very comfortable.
I received a pair of Feelgoodz and I must say they are very comfortable. The cushy feel is amazing. I feel like I am walking on marshmallows. The colors are bright and fun.
Feelgoodz flip-flops are a must-have for any beach getaway.
