The Dennis Doll Team & Tina The Termite: Go Green
Hello! I'm Tina the Termite. ...the Green Termite! Running around the walls of your house we see all that is going on it there. Boy! some of you are really wasting energy and creating a real drain on the environment. Some of you are even still using really bad stuff to try to kill us termites off! You know there are environmentally friendly ways of doing that ...and we don't even mind. After all God put us here to clean up the mess trees leave around...and we do it environmentally friendly! Stay in touch to see and hear more about "living green". See you real soon!
Inside and out your home can be greener. For instance, if you are getting ready to buy new kitchen appliances, why not consider more efficient models. Although priced a little higher than standard models, you may see savings that pay for the difference in just a few years ...or less! Even if you are only upgrading for the sale of your home, spending a little more can reap greater rewards through additional value or a quicker sale. I suggest you talk with Dennis Doll - "Your Agent of Tomorrow...Today" , about the best enhancements to do in preparation for that sale.

inside an outside your home. they also have a good Energy Quiz you can take.

Access to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail is by foot from Amicalola Falls State Park.
There are countless other sites available that discuss such issues as water conservation and what you can do. To get more
