If you own a business, it’s likely that many people ask you about your business endeavors and how your business works. We’ve been told by several business owners that more and more customers and clients want to know how their business is making a positive impact on the environment and how companies can save real money with recycling. This is even when their business has nothing to do with the environment or its impacts. The fact of the matter is, more and more people are caring about how they invest their money and if a business is being environmentally mindful. For this reason, the team at Ever Green Environmental are giving all of our business owner friends three recycling terms that everyone should understand!
This term is something that many people know about already. If you watch any type of news, it’s easy to catch businesses being scrutinized for the carbon footprint they leave. A carbon footprint is left by everyone. It’s what we wear, the food we eat, etc. The best thing that you can do for your business is to reduce your carbon footprint as much as possible. When someone asks, be ready to tell them the steps that your business is consistently taking to reduce your carbon footprint. This is primarily done through recycling and other eco-friendly solutions.
Zero Waste to Landfill
Have you ever seen those videos of families and individuals who literally consume zero trash. They keep a mason jar of the trash they’ve utilized over a course of 3 years. A small, little mason jar! Having sustainability and recycling goals helps to prove that you are working to eliminate waste that goes into the landfill. Zero waste to landfill is always a great goal to achieve but so many business owners find themselves stumped on how to achieve this. If you generate material within your company that just can’t be recycled, consider the option of waste-to-energy disposal. These specific facilities taking it in gather enough trash that it creates energy through combustion.
Finally, a word that every business owner should already know is sustainability. Business owners need to understand the need for sustainability within their own environment. Doing things that minimally impact the environment shows that you are aware of the need for sustainability and you are doing everything possible to address it. Eliminating waste to landfill, decreasing your carbon footprint, etc. These are all perfect ways to help your business prove its awareness towards sustainability.
