At Recyclops, we are continuing our commitment to bring recycling to everyone throughout the areas in which we serve. Whether you are a business owner or homeowner, your choice to live more sustainably helps everyone around you in your community.
While it’s easy to understand that creating less waste helps your environment, it can also help your business, especially when you bring in sustainable practices each and every day. So what does it mean to be a sustainable business and why should living a sustainable lifestyle be a priority for you?
So what does sustainability mean?
A prime example of why sustainable practices are important for businesses comes in the form of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an approximately 1.6 million square kilometre patch of dumped waste in the Pacific ocean. According to the scientific journal Environmental Sustainability, this garbage patch is approximately twice the size of Texas, leeching harsh plastics into the natural environment.
These leeched plastics are extremely harmful to the pacific oceans environment and the animals which live in them. Unfortunately, these animals can consume or breathe in these plastics which allows for the plastics to be eaten by humans through fish and other sea life. These come in the form of microplastics, microscopic plastics that can enter the body of animals and humans easily. Almost all of this plastic has come from commercial waste being dumped or lost in the ocean from companies not following sustainable practices or individuals trying to cut costs.
A study found that only 100 companies can be found to produce up to 71% of global emissions and waste. It’s easy to think that sustainability needs to be embraced by more individuals around the world and slowly this is happening. Without the support of businesses around the world, however, the majority of waste and emissions will never truly decrease.
