Environmental stewardship.

Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. Aldo Leopold (1887–1949) championed environmental stewardship based on a land ethic "dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it.

Different types of environmental stewards

There are 3 types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example, the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil from the beaches. A donor is the person that financially helps the cause. They can do anything from donating their money, to having galas or other fundraisers. They are typically governmental agencies. Lastly there are practitioners. They work on a day-to-day basis to steer governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome. Together these 3 groups make up environmental stewards and with the help keep the ecosystem running healthily. Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly technology, pollution, industrial based world.

How to Cut Costs on Office Cleaning

office-cleaningDid you're thought by you can save money by eliminating office cleaning? This is the wrong solution to saving cash. Cutting office cleaning can cost you more over time than the price of having the area cleaned weekly.
Office cleaning is a lot more than running a vacuum cleaner and wiping up the toilet sinks just. A thorough cleaning kills infections and germs, and removes dust along with other irritants that may make people sick. They make offices healthy truly. How is this essential? Nicely, beyond making your organization appearance much better, it lowers your organization costs. You cut costs if you have healthy productive employees working every full day.
Employee Productivity and Health
Viruses and germs help to make people sick. Dust, mold and mildew aggravate respiratory problems in anyone who has them, or trigger them in others. Whenever your employees are ill, they aren’t working out for you. At least you're out their efficiency for the day. In the event that you purchase sick time, you then are out efficiency and are paying individuals who aren’t working. Then there's the cost to your well being insurance premiums in case you have a complete lot of sick people. Premiums will rise. Most of these costs collectively will likely be higher than the price of having any office cleaned weekly by way of a commercial office cleaning company.
Trash Pick-up and Recycling
How else can workplace cleaning save money? Well, just how much do you dispose of each full day? We all purchase trash pick up, but would you save a few of that by recycling? There are several trash companies who've a pay out as you toss billing system. They cost for trash, however, not for picking right up recycling. So that you can cut costs as the even more you recycle, the low your bill. Then you can find companies that will pay out you for the things you recycle. For example, there are companies that may pay out you for empty toner and ink cartridges. Others can pay you for recycling consumer electronics like old mobile phones or office equipment. Therefore by doing the proper thing for the surroundings, you can cut costs.
Prior to deciding to nix cleaning costs, understand that not paying them can cost you a lot more over time.

  • We only have one Earth, and we're overshooting its capacity
    August 2 was Earth Overshoot Day. Unlike Earth Day or Canada Day, it's not a time to celebrate. As the Earth Overshoot Day website explains, it marks the time when "we will have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the whole year." That is the definition of unsustainable and means we're using up the biological capital that should be our children's legacy. We would require 1.7 Earths to meet our current annual demands sustainably.

  • What Happens to Water Quality When Communities Get Poorer?
    Nearly universal access to safe drinking water is one of the great miracles of modern society. Americans have taken it for granted for over half a century, though mostly unjustified fears of municipal water supplies have led to increased resort to much more expensive and usually no safer bottled water. The growth of environmentalism has […]

    For the record: The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation opposes all subsidies—corporate and individual, at federal, state, and local levels, regardless of their rationale. Not even national security justifies subsidies. If the nation needs bombers or computers or fuel for its security, let it buy them, plain and simple. But let it not […]

  • Why Should America Expand its Nuclear Energy Sector?
    I’ve long thought the primary obstacle to the great expansion of nuclear power’s contribution to America’s energy needs is excessive regulation imposing safety standards that go far beyond what’s necessary and thus pushing costs prohibitively high. I still think so, and one of the challenges Republicans in Congress should take on is revising bringing those […]
