In our last blog post we gave a brief overview of our objective here, and I figured the best way to give a more detailed introduction is to talk about us as individuals and our offices in general, as this is a way that we have taken it upon ourselves to provide an area that is less impactful on the planet than others in our position. It starts with us as people. We are a collective of individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds. We have engineers, environmentalists, and a wide range of others in the group. We all approach from a different angle to give a different viewpoint.
We are not a company, or a business of any sort, we are a collective of people who accumulate information, and spread it out for others to grab a hold of. Our engineer for instance, will bring up information about new building materials that are made from mainly recycled sources, we put the information out there on our website, on our blog and otherwise, and you, the reader has access to it, gains a little more information, and who knows, maybe uses that information to bring more awareness yourself. Maybe you’re a business owner looking for a new innovation to pique your customers interests. The availability from the point of gathering the information is endless really.
We have taken our interest in these items to a whole new level with our office space as well. We have solar panels, a water reservoir for drinking and waste water, we have a garden, and a number of other little things that assist us in providing ourselves with an environment we can be proud of, and lives up to the goals of the information we provide. To bring new and interesting ways of dealing with the need for current items, but in a way that looks out for the future of the planet and the people we care about.
We aim to leave our planet a little better of than how we found it, and for as hippy as that may sound, it is sound advice. We’re sure no one has looked at a smoke stack on a factory and thought, “this is the greatest thing ever”. We all inherently know the damages we cause, and yet feel strangely powerless to actually do anything about it. With a simple tweak or two to the status quo though, we have the power to completely change the way things work now, and to provide more sustainable means of progression.
After all, we all want our children and their children to grow up healthy on a planet that provides for them. So let’s take a little piece of time that we have for ourselves, and dedicate it to them, even if it’s only reading up on a new invention, or method of waste or otherwise, and passing along that tidbit of information to be shared alike, until those with the power to change have it in their ears.
