Home Living : August 12 2008
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, August 12, 2008 HOMELIVING Water wise Drought Shield reduces water loss from plants' leaves by up to 50 per cent. It is easy to apply and comes in a trigger pack. It forms a protective film over plants to improve plant survival in dry periods, providing protection from heat, sun, wind and frost. When collecting rainwater for use inside the home it's important to consider a complete rain harvesting system to ensure water quality is maintained. One of the elements of a complete system is a first flush water diverter -- a simple, yet effective, product designed to improve water quality and reduce tank maintenance. Details: visit www.rainharvesting.com.au or a Bunnings Warehouse. The Reece Sussex Pol single-handle sink mixer has a 5-star water-saving rating. The mixer is exclusive to Reece Plumbing Centres. Details: call 1800 032 566 or visit www.reece.com.au Go green with red Green living is of growing importance for Australians who have already begun changing their eating habits, electricity consumption and their recycling prowess. Architects and builders recognise that true green- living needs to be embedded in the house being built and are increasingly incorporating green ideas into residential design and construction. According to the Western Red Cedar Export Association's Cees de Jager there is no other commonly used building material that requires less energy to produce than timber. ''The harvesting of timber is much less intrusive than the mining of raw materials and it is 100 per cent biodegradable,'' he said. The perception is that buying and building green is more expensive. However the durability and sustainability of timber ensures that the long- term benefits far outweigh the short-term costs. Western red cedar is farmed using sustainable forestry practices and requires very little on-site energy. ................................................. 10/47 Parramatta Rd.
