EARTH DAY 2015
Happy Earth Day! It’s time to celebrate our amazing planet and to increase awareness of sustainability for future generations to enjoy it too. Earth day should not be just one day/month, but it should be something we take into account while making daily decisions. Today provides the opportunity to reflect back on our responsibility to care for our planet and how our choices affect more than just us as individuals.
At Behrents Endodontic Specialists, we try to be aware of our impact on the environment. In 2013 we became greeNWAy certified with the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce and are working to continue improving our purchasing and consuming practices around the work place in order to decrease our carbon footprint. If everyone does a little bit, it will all add up. We also participate in the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation clean up days. We have one scheduled clean up day every month for the quarter to help pick up trash from the bike trail around our city.
There are many ways we, as individuals and businesses, can make a positive impact on the environment. Personal practices at home can include sustainable product purchasing, recycling and gardening or even turning off lights when not in the room. Including low flow faucets, buying in bulk and shutting appliances off or putting them in sleep mode at the end of the day are only a FEW of the ways to be more sustainable at work.
So, take a moment to think about your impact on the environment. Have you thought about how your choices affect the environment? Can you make different choices that are more sustainable? To some, it does not even cross their mind. Everything we do is linked to this Earth in some way. It is our hope that we can persuade you to be more conscious of how your personal habits can affect our planet.
