We, as individuals and within companies do not need to contribute any further to damaging the immediate environment in which we live and work and cause more harm.
By acting responsibly, we can embrace recycling, re-using and substituting hazardous materials and by doing so, cut down on the impact our living and work activities have on the environment.
Before we tip waste oil or chemicals down the drain (because no-one is looking), we can ask ourselves, “Will this cause harm”?
Can we eliminate or reduce the source of pollution?
Can we recycle these used items?
Can this hazardous material be treated so it is no longer harmful?
Are our waste streams being disposed of ethically?
Every one of us in our own way can contribute to good waste and environmental management and it will start by asking:
“Will this cause harm”?
Please think before you act!!
