Search for Clean Alternatives

It is imperative that we redouble our efforts to search for clean sustainable alternatives to current food and energy sources, in order to safeguard the future of our planet.

Not only new energy sources are available but also the way to use the energy more efficiently. This means using less energy to do the same thing, as an example a light bulb can be used. New technology can produce light over 10 times more efficiently than a regular halogen light bulb.

Philips has developed an LED lamp that it describes as "the world's most energy-efficient". We offer free next day delivery - Top Brands Plus 30 Day Money Back Guarantee! The More You Buy The More You Save -  think EcoSave when you need LEDs

Welcome to the Alternative Crops Network website. We aim through our website to increase the awareness of the willingness to use alternatives, sustainable farming methods and crops, as well as alternative energy sources to fossil fuels, such as photovoltaic solar power, wind and wave energy.

All these initiatives are required in order to safeguard our future as we head into a period where the consequences of our increasing population and over-reliance on fossil fuels will make themselves felt, and with a vengeance. Please feel free to email us directly to learn more about alternative crop sources.
