Let’s make 2021 the year of environmental action.
Having a positive impact on the environment doesn’t have to be time consuming or costly. Small actions in your everyday life can, and will, make a big difference on the health of our planet. If we can all commit to making small changes, we do have the ability to make a lasting positive impact for generations to come.
Below are a few ideas on how you can get started:
- Opt for Reusable Bags (both grocery and storage bags)
- Reuse and Recycle
- Use Reusable Beverage Cups
- Save Electricity
- Cut Down on Your Printing
- Conserve Water
- Carpool When Possible
- Plant Pollinator Friendly Plants
- Volunteer with a Wildlife or Environmental Organization
- Shop Virtually (bundle items together for fewer shipment and boxes)
- Compost to Reduce Food Waste
- Upcycle Items
- Shop Locally
- Purchase Recycled Paper Products (paper towels, tissues, toilet paper)
- Never Rinse Cooking Fats, Oils and Grease Down the Sink
As a company focused on helping the environment by encouraging people to properly dispose of cooking fats, oils and grease we want to take a moment to expand upon #15 on the list.
Environmental Action Starts at Home
Our Grease Hero drain guards were designed to help keep pollutants out of local environments and waterways. When cooking fats, oils and grease are rinsed down the kitchen sink drain they ultimately clog your home’s plumbing, contribute to fatbergs in city sewers and lead to dangerous sewer overflows.
Grease Hero is designed to be placed into the top of your kitchen sink drain, so you can quickly and easily pour used cooking fats, oils and grease into it and then promptly dispose of it. It’s designed with recyclable materials to absorb the oil and grease waste and can be thrown out with your regular garbage. See Grease Hero in action on our YouTube channel. This one easy change in your kitchen cleaning routine will save you money from costly plumbing repairs, the city from expensive sewer damage, and our environment from deadly contamination.
The real key to a more sustainable lifestyle is to turn your good intentions into good habits. Let’s work hard to make 2021 the year we all take environmental action in our lives.
Join our mission to save the environment. We aim to promote environmental, social and economic benefit, all while prioritizing the environment over our product life cycles… from the initial manufacture using recycled materials until final disposal.
