People around us are becoming more aware every day of how everything we do on a daily basis is impacting our environment. From recycling our rubbish to hybrid cars, every little thing we can do helps!
So how are we at Metro Rod helping to keep our carbon footprints low and ensure we’re working towards a better future for our planet?
You may know of this ingenious little liquid. You will find it in most vans today! Our fleet of Ford Transit vans all require Adblue, this nifty liquid mixes with the fuel exhaust fumes to create a chemical reaction which removes harmful Nitrous molecules from the fumes. The only chemicals released form the exhaust following this chemical reaction are Hydrogen and Oxygen. Essentially, water vapour!
We pride ourselves on recycling our waste here in our office. Our waste is separated into relevant boxes and bags to be sorted at our local recycling depots. We even have a handy solution in recycling our sewage waste too! When we remove foul or FOG (Fat, Oil and Grease) from a site, it needs to be disposed of properly to prevent it causing problems not only for drains in the future but for the environment in general! We use a specialist waste management site who recycle the waste properly in our stead, ensuring all the correct channels are followed.
In order to provide all our customers and clients with the info they need, we provide service brochures and more! But now we’re going digital! All of our literature has a digital alternative, from flick through service brochures to animated videos; we have all the information our customers could possibly need! From explaining in depth on the benefits of CCTV Surveys, to showing you what our Tankers can do for you! By going digital, this enables us to “think before you print” and keep our paper and ink usage to a minimum. Going paperless helps not only our environment but allows our customers instant access to all the info they need using our online literature. You can take a look at our services flip book here and our video below on how we can help you with your drainage issues!
In our office…
In our office we like to ensure that lights are turned off when not needed. Our heating is used economically and taps and toilets checked regularly to ensure no leaking to keep our water usage down! Some of us even carpool to the office! Why not try implementing some of these handy environmentally friendly solutions at your workplace?
By all of us doing our own little bit for our environment, it will make a huge difference!
Let us know how you’re helping, have you switched to metal straws from plastic? Are you using reusable carrier bags? Have you added a desk plant to improve your air quality in your office? Whatever it is we hope you continue doing so!
