Media Watch | FrontLine Shows Us The Lives Kiva Changes

All of us here at G Living are big fans and supporters of the non-profit group Kiva.org. Kiva enables everyday people like us, to lend money to people in need around the world. Through their website, you are able to learn about people in need of small loans to start or expand business in 3rd world countries. Most of the loans are around one to two thousand, which individuals can group together to raise. Most of the time, each person gives around $25.

The really amazing part about the Kiva site is, you can watch almost in real time as 10 to 20 other people loan their $25 dollars and the loan is complete. Now the person in need will receive the your loan and fulfill their business plan. The loans are paid back over a relatively short period of time and you can either take your money back or choose another person in need.

The PBS show, Frontline World traveled to Africa to meet some of the individuals the micro loans are helping. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Method Prefab Cabin

method homes cabin 01 Method Prefab Cabin

Method Homes, a Seattle manufacturer of architect-designed, sustainably built prefab housing, is pleased to announce that its first prefab, green cabin in Glacier, Washington near Mt. Baker has been completed. The cabin is fully furnished and is currently being used as a vacation home by Method Founders Brian Abramson and Mark Rylant and their families.

Rylant is pleased with the layout and configuration of the current model, which is based on a flexible template. “One of the exciting things about our design is that it can be modified and constructed in so many different ways and sizes ranging from 800 to 2000+ square feet and as one or two stories.”

Method Homes completed the construction on schedule in just three months. Abramson and Rylant see their timely finish as a testament to the advantages of the off-site approach. According to Brian Abramson, “Construction in the Company’s controlled-environment facility results in a faster build-out (it never rains indoors), and a more efficient one at that–up to 50% less waste of building materials in the construction process. Craftsmen can count on being productive and adhering to anticipated schedules. By building in a factory, Method’s crews cut down on trips made to the site by delivery vehicles and subcontractors, thus minimizing impact to the environment.”

HOME | A Film Made For All Of Us, To Inspire Us To Save Ourselves

home themovie about the earth 08 HOME | A Film Made For All Of Us, To Inspire Us To Save Ourselves

Watch The Full Documentary in HD on Youtube | Home Project

I just finished watching this amazing film about our home, the planet earth. I would have to say this is one of the most engaging, powerful and inspiring films I have ever seen. The film makers where able to connect all the dots. From the moment the Earth took shape, to the rise of plant life and eventually on to us. What took billions of of years to create, we humans are managing to destroy in just 100 years.

I am asking everyone to please take two hours out of your life, and just watch this film. When your done, tell someone about it. And then, sign up for the G Living Monkie Mail, so you can start living G and be part of the solution, and not part of the problem. Thank you for caring and Living G!. G Monkie

About the film: In 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has upset the balance of the planet, established by nearly four billion years of evolution. The price to pay is high, but it’s too late to be a pessimist: humanity has barely ten years to reverse the trend, become aware of the full extent of its spoliation of the Earth’s riches and change its patterns of consumption.

More than a movie, HOME will be a major event all over the globe : for the first time ever, a film will be released on the same day in over 50 countries and on every format : movie theatres, TV, DVD and Internet. Watch It Now Online – Click Here

A Monkies Boyhood Dream Vehicle The Modern Airships

airship ventures zepplin 04 A Monkies Boyhood Dream Vehicle The Modern AirshipsPhotographer: KQED Quest (CC)

Since I was a kid, I have always wanted to own my very own Airship. I just thought it would be a cool thing to live on, slowly gliding over the world, exploring new places. Much better than the bumpy stomach turning ride you get on a sail boat. So, when I was out looking for photos today and came across Quest TV’s Photo of a new modern designed Airship called the Eureka, I had to embed the show. Maybe some day Airships will replace all those diesel burning freight trucks coming out of Long Beach. They could even replace the cargo ships entirely. The container ships are a major source of pollution world wide and the ballast water the ships carry is a major source of invasive species, which is helping destroy the oceans fragile eco-systems.

Here is some details about the Eureka

The Eureka is made by Airship Ventures and is not a blimp or true Zepplin. It’s something new, a hybrid. Called a Zeppelin NT, the airship hull is made of a state of the art multi layer laminated material, which is also used for NASA space suits. The gas used to lift the ship is non-flammable helium. The ship is so tough, it can be hit by lightning with little to no effect on how it flies.

French Bikers Oh So Sexy, Montreal Bixi City Bikes Are Here

bixi 04 French Bikers Oh So Sexy, Montreal Bixi City Bikes Are Herevia Tamy’s Blog on Montréal tourisme-montreal.org

Get some exercise, explore the city and meet locals . . . by bike! It all started on May 12, 2009. Montréal has a brand new public bike system that will make it that much easier for tourists – and Montrealers – to take a spin around town. For only $5 a day, you can pick up a bike at any one of the 300 BIXI stations scattered about town. It’s easy. Just swipe your credit card in the solar-powered station and type in the code to unlock your BIXI bike. When you’re done with the bike, simply return it to the station closest to your destination. This is great news, considering Montréal is one of North America’s most cyclist-friendly cities. I took a BIXI bike for a ride on Monday and put together a little video of my favourite bike routes in Montreal! A definite must-see!

I was out searching for new bloggers to join G Living this morning and I came across the Girliegirl Army Blog and to my surprise, there was my friend Rory Friedman doing an interview with the blogs creator, Chloé. So, I started looking around the site and found this video of Chloé and Joshua Katcher, interviewing the founder of Olsen Haus. A highend very “G” vegan shoe line for women just like Chloé and Rory. The shoes are I guess in the mid-price range for high end women shoes. The prices I saw on the site ranged from $99 to just over $200 a pair.
