Our world is undoubtedly going through some fairly sizeable changes, none more so than the new found drive to clean up our act a little bit. We’re a traditional haulage company but we want to lead the way; none of this isn’t going to be easy because we have all, certainly in the Western World, become accustomed to a very specific way of life. The environmental impact of our way of life has become all too evident but we like our lives rights? We like the holidays, the nice things that we work hard for, that new phone, that new item of clothing and we think there’s nothing wrong with that. What we need to do is simply tip the balance towards making these nice things sustainable.
Our consumer driven economies have always been at the expense of the environment, but it’s never really been understood to what scale until this last decade. Our environmental impact has never been more topical and we, as a species, have never been so aware of how our actions affect our special planet.
With this new found focus on our environmental impact there has never been a better time to capitalise on the worlds enthusiasm for protecting our planet. We are often given ideas by experts on how we should change our habits but very few are truly grass roots and practical, implementation of these ideas for the everyday family who have careers, houses to run, family’s to organise and a whole host of other responsibilities, they are often simply unrealistic. The truly ground breaking ideas will be judged by history to be the ones that helped families and households make practical changes that were realistic.
We’re not Eco-Warriors, we’re not pushing opinion from behind a keyboard without offering solutions, no, we are normal citizens who simply see that all of the talk is currently not resulting in any action. What makes us different is that we are ready to take on that challenge; to make tangible and measurable solutions available to the world that starts to tackle all of the environmental issues we’re facing.
We felt a good place to start was to ensure that all of our collection vehicles and our processing plant run on electric from renewable sources which is generated right here at our plant!
We really look forward to working with you all.
