Have you ever considered whether or not the products you use are hurting the environment? A lot of people care about the environment much more now than in days past. Even my boss, who’s an avid blue collar redneck driving for the Baltimore movers union is an eco freak. He keeps claiming that the trucks spew too much crap into the air. It seems like everyone is joining the green party & helping to improve the environment which we call home. But that is simply not the case for everyone. Many people still do not consider conserving water, recycling materials, or insisting upon merchandise from companies who care for the environment. These people are taking a big risk by not considering these facts. Companies have been in business from the beginning to make money. That is the major driving force for the entire world. So how can one expect a company to make drastic changes in some cases that are not cost effective at all if we do not insist upon it? The answer is we can not expect it. The only way we will see the companies creating our goods & offering our services taking measures to become green is if we make them.
Likewise, how is it possible to make these companies do something which they have no interest in. Simple, the answer is to buy products from the companies who do treat the planet with the respect it deserves. There are companies in existence who have already taken the steps necessary to protect the environment. These companies must be rewarded with customers in order to show others that it is what the public wishes to have happen. The true power of supply & demand comes into play here. If there is much less or no demand for their products which do not meet green standards the will stop supplying the items. If there is demand for greener more environmentally friendly products then you can be assured that the supply in that area will increase immediately as a reaction.
It is not always easy to make changes to the way you go about life on a regular basis but the rewards a plentiful for those of us who do. If you are interested in changing the way the world works & improving the environment for those of us that we plan to leave the world to in the future then please shop for products created with the environment in mind. There are simple ways to do this such as shop in stores that are known to carry the green products or research the products you intend to purchase to evaluate the environmental friendliness. This is where we can help. Please locate & refer to the list of products that have already been researched for the consumer. These products have been found to be quality & environmentally friendly. Anyone wanting to help improve the environment should feel fine about purchasing them.
