Earth Day 2023: How You Can Make the World a Better Place

Apr 22, 2023 | Landscape Supply, Uncategorized

 

Happy Earth Day 2023! This day serves as a reminder to take care of our planet and its resources. With the current state of our environment, it is more important than ever to take action to make our planet better.

As a leader in innovative waste-to-resource and beneficial reuse business practices, Kurtz Bros., can help you reduce your environmental impact in both minor and major ways. Here are some effective ways you can help contribute to the cause.

Reduce Consumption

Water is a precious resource, and it’s important to use it wisely. Simple measures like fixing leaky taps, taking shorter showers, and using water-efficient appliances can make a big difference.

Plus, we rely on energy for everything, so it’s important to use it wisely as well. Switching to energy-efficient appliances, turning off lights and electronics when not in use, and using renewable energy sources like solar power can help reduce our carbon footprint.

Also, remember that cars are one of the biggest sources of pollution. So, reducing car usage can make a significant impact. Consider using public transportation, biking, or carpooling to reduce your carbon footprint.

Choose Organic Fertilizers

Compost is made up of decomposed organic matter that promotes better soil health with the replenishment of texture and microbes. Unlike most chemical fertilizers, compost works to modify or improve the condition of the soil, creating an overall healthier growing medium.

Compost, when topically applied as a lawn fertilizer or as a soil amendment, helps improve both soil moisture retention and aeration, which are critical for plant health and longevity. Compost also helps to prevent plant disease, erosion, and compaction of the soil.

Reuse and Recycle Whenever Possible

Reusing and recycling is a critical aspect of sustainable living. By reusing items as much as possible and recycling what we can, we can significantly reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

However, at Kurtz Bros, Inc., we see these issues as an opening for improvement, rather than a hindrance.
