Los Angeles’ Piece of the Eco-Economy
Our little smidgeon of the scrap metal industry is just a sliver of the total global effort to reduce waste. Much of that waste (including metals) is ascribed to by many as a contributor to global warming (or “climate change” as the name has evolved over time).
When the ecological issue Global Warming is gone over the 3 main subjects of dispute seem to be 1) does it exist, 2) what is to blame for it, and 3) who is responsible for repairing it. What can be done to correct the issue is seldom at the leading edge of the debate regrettably, but the accountable party constantly seems to default to the U.S. government. While it seems rational that the United States government must drive the movement towards a much healthier environment the business sector has an essential function to play. The resources commanded by the leading 100 companies on the planet exceed those of the poorest 100 nations. With this level of power the business sector might very well have the ability to fix Global Warming prior to the federal government can choose who to blame for it.
Power intake in the company sector has actually always been a large percentage of the whole. Burning through this much power, as well as all of the computer system waste being developed by service means a giant carbon footprint.
Goodwill Industries now has a computer system department that does nothing other than collect old computers, then recondition and re-sell them at seriously discounted prices. The recycling business is in such demand in fact, the United States based computer system recycling company Metech was just recently purchased for $22 million in money and stock.
What can organizations do to prevent waste from winding up in garbage dumps? Start here:
– Reduce paper– Businesses should just buy recycled paper, and after that as little as possible. A lot of significant office supply stores sell recycled paper.
– Recycle Everything– well you can’t recycle whatever, but a recycle center should be set up at the office with clear instructions on what enters the garbage and what does not. This can include many metal objects and one case in point in stainless steel.
– Educate– Make sure staff members understand what they can do to assist business improve the environment.
While it seems logical that the United States government should drive the movement towards a healthier environment the organization sector has an essential role to play. With this level of power the business sector might really well be able to fix Global Warming prior to the federal government can choose who to blame for it.
Burning through this much power, as well as all of the computer waste being produced by business indicates a giant carbon footprint. The recycling organization is in such need in truth, the US based computer system recycling business Metech was recently purchased for $22 million in cash and stock.
Regardless of where one stands on the subject of climate change there is no doubt that many industries including metal recycling continue to make money while making contributions to a healthier planet.
