The markets for goods and services in the U.S. have been clamoring for suppliers and providers who conserve natural resources and energy while reducing solid waste and chemical use. This outcry is the result of the realization, on behalf of Americans, that it should be a priority to take the reigns in a global effort to change behaviors in order to preserve our finite natural resources. We must, in other words, transform from a society with a “throw-away” attitude to one that gets the most from the resources we do use, because, let’s face it – with the plummeting economy and limited energy sources, very little is disposable anymore.
Today’s catch phrase is ” reduce, reuse, and recycle,” and it’s become trendy to do so. Young urbanites cruise to work on two wheels instead of four, and scoff at their Styrofoam cup-holding counterparts from the seat of their fuel-free bicycles. Cities across the country are banning plastic bags or charging fees to use them, promoting cloth totes as a sustainable alternative. Businesses everywhere are looking for ways to cut down on their paper use and plastic waste, converting to electronic filing systems and seeking out eco-friendly packaging solutions.
A lot of companies, whether independent or large corporations, look to validate their green initiatives by obtaining LEED Building Certifications – that is, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – or other eco-conscious certifications. One very measurable way to cut down on building waste is to outsource laundering services, which utilizes a large percentage of energy while also producing wastewater.
