Take Action - GO GREEN
Green / Clean Energy Company Tips
~Light - allow outside light in as much as possible, it creates a healthier working environment as well as more energy efficient. Good shading outside a window can reduce direct sunlight, but allow the light to enter the room.
~Light bulbs – change to CFL light, don't use halogen lamps (most energetic inefficient)
~Refrigerators, air-conditioners, computers – get the most energy efficient. It costs more at first, but pays back throughout the lifespan of the product.
~Cooling of servers rooms –apply good insulation to reduce energy consumption for cooling
~Central Controls – automatic switches for turning-off air-conditioning and lights can reduce energy consumption significantly – 14-16% on average.

Linda Mosek's "Retirement - the Window of Opportunity"
In a “youth oriented society” the aged sector finds itself rejected in a social, economic and cultural climate, which has no room for them. Today they live longer, have the desire to remain productive.
To alleviate this situation, Linda Mosek is creating valued occupational opportunities for the elderly by establishing a unique vocational center in Hod Hasharon in the center of Israel, run by the elderly, which serves the general population. In addition to it’s many services, the center provides work-related prospects in the forms of an organic coffee shop, a plant nursery, ceramics studio, handicraft-manufacturing workshops and a retail shop, which sells amongst other things, gift items and gift baskets.
