Let's Work Together this Earth Day!
Today is Earth Day, and let's be real: EVERY day is Earth Day! The Earth takes care of us, providing light and soil for our food to grow, air for us to breathe, land to live on, and we here at Soap Distillery try to take as many steps as we can to return the favor. While we as a company will continue to take steps both difficult and easy to improve our carbon footprint, it's easy to make small, everyday impacts to improve the current trajectory that we're on. Let's talk about it below!
While recycling seems fairly easy to do, many of us live in areas in which our recycling programs are not great, or, they do not exist. For example, my parents live in an area in which they have to purchase their own recycling bin, and once full, they have to drop their recycling off at an intake center that's a drive away from their house. The bin is not inexpensive, and many of you out there know how physically taxing it can be to continuously drop the bags off if you're older or disabled in any way. This is yet another example of companies and organizations doing little to nothing in support of environmentalism while they put 100% of the work in our hands. But hey, if you've gotten this far, you know the best outcome can only happen if we all work together :)
When it comes to recycling, it's best to do what you can in your area, and continue to push your local politicians to improve the programs for your neighborhoods, cities, and states. If you do have access to recycling, make sure to follow your local guides to know what can be recycled or composted commercially.
