Earth Day 2024: “Planet vs. Plastics.”

The main message this year is to raise awareness of the health risks of plastics, with a goal to phase out the use of single-use plastics. 

How is your organization celebrating? Little changes matter all year long!

  • Enlist your Wellness and Safety Teams for ideas and project assistance.
  • Reduce and reuse.
  • Reduce your value-chain emissions.
  • Measure and analyze greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Ditch disposable water bottles at your organization and install refillable water bottle stations.
  • Switch to a Reverse Osmosis filtering system if you are concerned about your current drinking water. Can the organization provide a small ‘grant’ to purchase these? FYI: these systems are the only ones that filter out microplastics in our drinking water.
  • Promote the use of bar shampoos and conditioners, and changing to laundry sheets rather than plastic containers. 
  • Stop using plastic bags. Distribute reusable bags made from recycled plastics to al employees! 
  • Encourage sustainable commuting and walking or riding a bike for short trips instead of driving.
  • Get involved in ensuring bike lanes and sidewalks in your community.
  • Go meatless at least one day a week – at work and home. Did you know that raising livestock on massive feedlots generates a colossal amount of green gas emissions – more than all the transportation emissions combined?  Cutting back the amount of meat consumed will shrink an individual’s dietary carbon impact.
