What Others Are Doing, How You Can Help

(NAPSI)—The global pandemic brought home to many people just how interconnected the world has become. This is true about the need to protect the environment, as well.

 

According to the National Institutes of Health, the way to preserve human health is by maintaining the environment because polluted air, water and land encourages such sicknesses as asthma and lead poisoning, while global warming fosters the spread of disease.

 

Fortunately, throughout the country, efforts large and small are helping to resolve this.

 

What’s Being Done

 

For example, one major American corporation with a long, proud history of environmental sustainability and a strong track record of action and success has raised the bar on its environmental commitments and accelerated the progress of short- and long-term goals that meet or exceed environmental regulations. As Marc Bitzer, Chairman and CEO of Whirlpool Corporation put it. “As we continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19, the health and safety of our employees and communities remain our priority. We strongly believe that our sustainability efforts are as important now as ever. These efforts are guided by a clear mission to earn trust and create demand while in constant pursuit of improving life at home.” To that end, the company has:

 

•Reduced its absolute plant emissions by 18% by investing in efficiency and renewable energy;

•Achieved zero waste to landfill in eight plants across three regions;

•Accomplished a global waste-to-recycling rate of 96%; and

•Developed an innovative solution to reuse water from an existing chiller that saves 31 million gallons of water each year.

 

What You Can Do

 

For your part, you can help the environment these four ways:

 

1.Get your car a tune-up. Properly maintained vehicles get better gas mileage and emit fewer pollutants.

2.Plant a tree. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.

3.Run the dishwasher and clothes washer only when you have full loads.

4.Don’t let the water run while you shave or brush your teeth.
