Everybody’s on board the eco train these days, trumpeting their recycled plastic packaging and reusable canvas bags that save trees. This is all good, and we need a lot more of it.
Consider how the International Institute for Sustainable Development describes its mission: “To address the root causes of some of the greatest challenges facing our planet today — ecological destruction, social exclusion, unfair laws and economic rules, a changing climate.” That’s pretty ambitious, and comprehensive.
The IISD’s programs comprise Economic law and policy, Energy, Water, SDG knowledge, and the amorphously titled Resilience: “strengthening the capacities of human and natural systems to cope, adapt and reorganize” — perhaps the most challenging aspect of all. Humans may be natural adapters, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to give up our elaborate to-go coffee orders or single-use throwaway beverage bottles, which end up littering the ocean floor.
Eco-Friendly, Effective, and Economical
Impact Absorbents understands the dilemma, which is why we’ve been committed to creating premier, eco-friendly spill clean up and spill containment solutions since our founding in 1992. Our extensive line of absorbents and safety products is effective, economical, and eco-green, making whichever spill solution you select safe for both you and the environment.
Whether you need a heavier formula that will stay down in windy conditions, such as XSORB Outdoor All-Purpose Absorbent, a FiberLink Universal Boom to mold around industrial machinery, or some high capacity Oil Absorbent Pads to prevent petroleum from infiltrating the man-made pond you’re designing for a luxury property, we’ve got you covered.
Living sustainably means every choice we make contributes to the good of the planet and all her inhabitants. Remember Teddy Roosevelt’s brilliant maxim: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
We’re making this effort collectively as a company. And individually, with fewer single-use plastic drink bottles — and perhaps some reusable coffee cups, with lids…
