Green Investing Update by Conserv-A-Store week ending 10-7-11

Here's your Green Investing Update by Conserv-A-Store for the week ending 10-7-11.

Of course most of the recent press was how the 3rd Quarter of 2011 was the worst for the stock market since the Lehman debacle of 2008. Will the stock market and the economy crawl out of it's funk in late 2011 and throughout 2012 or will there possibly be another recession?

We have promised to add to our list of stocks and we feel a good source for additions is the Progressive Investor by Rona Fried at Sustainable Business.com

She has her SB20 for the 20 most sustainable investments in the world. We do not agree with all of the SB20 since some are restaurants such as Chipotle and consumer companies such as Herman Miller who may practice great social skills with their employees but still do not really make the world greener that is produce a product such as wind or solar that cuts pollution but does not sacrifice lifestyle.

With all the talk about infrastructure we will add Pure Technologies Ltd to our portfolio. This is a company that extends the life of infrastructure which can be viewed as Green through better use of materials.

Another stock we will add from the SB20 is Ormat Technologies which is a driller and administrator of geothermal technologies, a type of energy that must be used more extensively if the world is to leave fossil fuel dependence

So here's the portfolio as of today with the above additions:
