It is a hot topic in our nation and people on many levels are trying to be more aware of their carbon foot print.
From at home recycyling programs to major corporations making an effort to reduce, reuse and recycle we have come a long way but still have a lot of work to do.
Kingsbrook Animal Hospital like any other small business uses a lot of resources on a daily basis to conduct our business. As a small business we have tried to minimize our carbon foot print by implementing the use of many environmentally friendly products such as Biokleen floor and surface cleaner and laundry detergent, Ecover cream scrub, glass cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner and fabric softner, Marcal toilet paper, Seventh Generation paper towels, and Earth Friendly Products dish soap.
We also recycle as many resources in the hospital as we can. We recycle plastic, metal, paper and cardboard. We encouraged our property manager to install a cardboard recycling bin in our waste collection area which is now being used by us as well as the other businesses in our center.
No act is too small and we as a community should all take part and do what we can. Here are some helpful online resources.
