Roosevelt Hotel Miami Preserves Art Deco Design with Eco-Terr Murano White

Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2014

Eco-Terr terrazzo in Murano White is featured in the recently renovated Roosevelt Hotel in Miami Beach. Interior designer Martin Brudnizki chose Eco-Terr to help preserve the Art Deco architecture and design of the historic 388 room hotel set to open later this year. To meet with Brudnizkis design, Coverings ETC produced custom sizes of Murano White, which is featured throughout the guest bathrooms. Made from cement and recycled marble and granite chips, standard sizes are 16 x 16 and 24 x 24, but customization of size and color is available for large projects.

Murano White is part of Coverings ETCs signature series, Eco-Terr which continues to evolve in fresh new ways. Our larger aggregate precast tile collection, including colors such as Diamante and Bergamo Black, is now available in slabs as well. Rectified tiles and slabs are available in over 40 colors (including custom colors) in polished, brushed, honed, and several other finishes. As with all of the products in our ECOverings collection, Eco-Terr contributes towards LEED credits for green project needs. Eco-Terr provides environmentally friendly durability and low maintenance, lasting the life of the building. With no VOCs emitted, it also earns points on indoor air quality ratings.

The new color and design options once again prove Coverings ETC is a step ahead of the competition when it comes to providing contemporary design combined with uncompromising durability and quality.

Coverings ETC is a US company based in Miami, FL with widespread distribution. For more information, contact info(at)coveringsetc(dot)com or visit

Green Living – Eco Home Design and Environmental Friendly Habits

green living
by Shaun Merritt

Why green living?

I have 8 grandchildren and I would like them to live in the future in a world as good or better than the world we know today. But that will only be possible if we take more care of our use of natural resources and the environment. I think I need to take responsibility for what I can, linked to my daily life, and I would recommend you to do the same if you care for your grandchildren.

Is it difficult to live more green?

Many have the feeling that to live more green is very bothersome, expensive and difficult. But take these advices and see if they fit your temper and possibilities. As with a lot of things in life it helps to think and plan a little ahead of what you want to do. For me the following approach toward a more green daily life has been rewarding.

Generate ideas of more green living

Use five minutes to list a lot of things you expect would reduce your and your family’s impact on the environment. Just dot the ideas down as they come into your mind. If feasible do it as a family event around the table and engage everyone in this green brainstorm. Think of three types of more green living as follows and put your green ideas into the three categories:

1. Green ideas that will save you money
2. Green ideas that will be neutral on your economy
3. Green ideas that will cost you money

1. Green ideas that will save you money

The ideas for greener living that will save you money should be implemented immediately. It is stupid to waste money and at the same time pollute more or use more resources than needed. Many companies here in Denmark have made use of this to reduce their environmental impact and to improve their competitiveness and profit from that green initiative at the same time. Many private households would benefit from it too.

Examples of green ideas that will save you money more or less from the moment you implement them are:

– Avoid running toilets and dripping taps (remember the garden, too).
– Have your lamps and electricity running more than needed, e.g. in rooms without any persons, and the standby lamps of electrical equipment.
– Drive your care more softly and you reduce the consumption of gasoline and keep your tires longer.

2. Green ideas that will be neutral on your economy

If you think of your grandchildren as I recommend the green ideas that will be neutral to your economy should also be taken into consideration. It is ideas for greener living that just need a little attention from you in your daily life.

Such more green habits could be

– When you are shopping avoid the extra bags and wrapping from the shop if you don’t need it.
– Make your own compost in your garden and keep as much of the nutrition’s in your garden instead of ‘exporting’ garden waste and have to buy fertilizers etc.
– Reduce your consumption of red meat and prepare food with more fish, chicken and turkey and supplement more with veggies. – That will also be healthier.

3. Green ideas that will cost you money

Ideas for greener living that cost you money might also be worthwhile considering, so please read on. Here I will emphasise the environmental effect when you buy new kinds of equipment, like a new freezer, a new car, a new computer, a new washing machine etc. The whole trend of eco home design will often belong to this category.

Take your time to investigate the different qualities related to the environmental impact of the different brands and models of machines and equipment. Search for independent rating of the environmental impacts. In Europe we have a marking with A to E for the energy consumption and the most environmental friendly washing machines etc. will have an A label. Most consumers at least in Denmark will be very much aware of that label and go for it if it isn’t too expensive.

The beauty of such an expense is that in most cases it will pay off in the long run to pay the extra for an environmental friendly model because you will save electricity or other tings in the long run. In many cases the premium environmental friendly machines will also be of the best quality and that will help you too. So you see it isn’t that difficult to get started with some new greener habits and you can still look your grandchildren in the eyes because you are caring for their future.

San Mateo Architect, Max Woo Remodels Own Home with Artificial Hedge Design

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2014

San Mateo Architect, Max Woo, has lived in his San Mateo home for over twenty years and recently embarked on a huge remodel project in his backyard. The new landscape design included utilizing an artificial boxwood hedges on existing concrete walls that surrounded the patio, pool, and tennis court areas. The deck was also redesigned, and everything was included to compliment the minimalist, low maintenance theme of the property.

Architect Woo, consulted with his general contractor and Geranium Street Floral for the artificial boxwood hedge. He decided on a UV rated directional artificial boxwood hedge to cover the walls around the pool and deck area. He later extended the hedge wall to cover portions of the tennis court area. The project was one of Geranium Streets biggest installs to-date.

We worked closely with Max and the general contractor to construct the artificial hedge wall so that it would conform to local building codes, and be durable enough to last, said Geranium Street president, Bob Smith. We learn new tricks on each job that helps us to more efficiently create artificial hedge walls… added Smith.

To construct the wall, Geranium Street pros attached blankets of artificial hedge mats to corrugated steel frames and then attached those frames to the ten-foot concrete walls surrounding the back yard. The results were quite impressive and the artificial hedge wall added some much needed texture to the otherwise bare walls. The artificial hedge wall looks particularly nice beside the pool.

An artificial boxwood hedge has good sound proofing qualities, and that is a plus, especially near a pool or tennis court, Smith said. The artificial hedge acts as a muffle to harsh sound waves that echo off of flat concrete walls. This will decrease the noise in the tennis court, or when many people are using the pool or deck area. The other factor Woo liked was that the artificial hedge was maintenance free. Geranium Street Floral has recently installed artificial hedge walls at other properties in San Francisco, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Las Vegas.

Geranium Street Floral is the premium provider of Outdoor Artificial Plants, Artificial Hedge Panels, Artificial Bamboo, Boxwood Bushes, Boxwood Balls, Topiary, and more. Conveniently located in beautiful San Marcos, CA, theyre here to provide all of your artificial plant needs 7 days a week.

Wegmans to Offer Fenugreen FreshPaper, Award-Winning Design to Reduce Food Waste

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2013


Friday, September 27, 2013 – FreshPaper launches today in all Wegmans stores (83 locations across New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts).


FreshPaper by Fenugreen is a simple piece of paper infused with organic spices that keep fruits & vegetables fresh for 2 4x longer, naturally. Often described by consumers as a dryer sheet for produce,” one small (5″ x 5″) FreshPaper sheet can simply be dropped into fridge drawers, cartons, bags and containers filled with produce. FreshPaper is also recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. The patented and award-winning product will retail at Wegmans in packs of 8 sheets for $ 5.99.


While the world’s farmers harvest enough food to feed the planet, twenty-five percent of the world’s food supply is lost to spoilage, resulting in massive land, water, energy, and human costs. Fenugreen is taking on this enormous, yet often overlooked, global challenge with its simple innovation, FreshPaper.

We sell FreshPaper to make it available to those who need it most, said FreshPaper Inventor and Fenugreen Founder, Kavita Shukla. Were excited to partner with Wegmans because of the opportunity to continue our Buy a Pack, Give a Pack program and bring FreshPaper to all – the 1.6 billion people living without refrigeration in the developing world, as well as food banks and food pantries here at home that struggle to provide fresh, healthy food to the hungry. Fenugreens mission is to improve access to fresh food, and boost the lives of farmers and communities worldwide – Fresh for All.

FreshPaper started as Shukla’s middle school science project and was inspired by a homemade spice tea her grandmother in India once gave her as a remedy for drinking contaminated tap water.


FreshPaper is now available in all Wegmans stores. (Complete list of stores available at
