This year, the theme of Earth Day 2021 is “Restore Our Earth™.”   Earth day sustainable

Here are 10 items that oceanservice.noaa.gov  says we can do to help protect the Earth:

  • Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
  • Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
  • Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
  • Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
  • Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.
  • Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
  • Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy-efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also, flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
  • Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
  • Don’t send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
  • Bike more. Drive less.

At Great Lakes Label, “We strongly believe in our responsibility for making a positive and lasting contribution to our communities and environment. Our efforts range from environmental, health, and safety initiatives to partnering with local charities and organizations.”

We have a commitment to sustainability and our efforts range from environmental, health, and safety initiatives to partnering with local charities and organizations.

We Use T5 Lighting

In our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and tackle climate change, Great Lakes Label was outfitted with new T5 lighting. The T5 lighting helps us reduce emissions, using much less energy, compared to fluorescent or T8 lighting. Our facility has also realized greater energy savings. The long-lasting lighting has also eliminated constant disposal, decreasing our waste.

Commitment To Waste Reduction

We continue to reduce the number of raw material deliveries by implementing LEAN practices within our purchasing procedures. Great Lakes Label LLC works closely with our supply chain, documenting and tracing raw materials all the way back to their origin.

Recycling

We recycle our corrugated waste material. We continue to try and reduce materials wasted with our LEAN manufacturing practices, reuse items that we can during testing and trials, and recycle our waste materials that can be recycled
