We are green. From the air we breathe to the water we drink, we are doing our best to recycle and replenish our natural resources. Here's how:
• We recycle 90% of everything we use, including e-trash.
• We abstain from buying bottled water.
• We hire locally, eat locally and drink locally. ;)
• We conserve electricity. If we aren't using it, it is turned off and unplugged.
• We utilize 90% electronic filing and documentation.
• We try to walk to work and meetings if we can't walk, we ride bikes. If we can't ride bikes, then we carpool.
• We use cleaning supplies naturally formulated from nature including baking soda, vinegar, lemon and soap.
• We replant every year in hopes of replenishing our carbon footprint utilizing trees which exponentially nourish our environment. Not only are they beautiful, they provide oxygen and habitat enriching our ecosystem and helping prevent global warming.
Here's where we do it...
