We strive to help educate people, agencies, groups and institutions on conservation issues and help guide them towards influencing businesses to become more environmentally conscious. It is our objective to match consumers with "green" companies that meet their requirements and environmental expectations.
Daily Green Tip
As more and more Americans have become further accustomed to using as well as depending on their garbage disposals, we have seen an increase in the occurrence of disruptions in the nutrient balance found in water and soil ecosystems. These unnatural changes can adversely affect the wildlife that depends on the water supply and food grown from the soil. As an alternative to running waste through your garbage disposal, consider composting your food waste (the most environmentally friendly option), or at least disposing of it in the regular trash. This can also benefit you greatly as it will reduce problems with the functionality of your septic tank, therefore saving you money. If you absolutely need to run your garbage disposal, try to only run cold water with it, as you can at least cut back on some of your energy use by not using water warmed by your water heater.
