As a company that deals with renewable energy, it would be contradictory for us to not recycle our used products.
As any business has the responsibility to recycle, not all enforce it. However, at RES, our business is built on renewable energy and have a responsibility to not only protect the environment and your investments, but to also lead by example. We actually encourage our customers to reduce their energy use, if possible, to save money and make their renewable energy systems even more efficient.
Whether it is product packaging, scrap metal, tools, paper, drink containers, or products used in our virtual offices, we take the initiative to recycle items that we can and make better energy choices.
Recycling has many benefits.
Recycling can reduce your expenditures throughout the month. This can be done by reusing product containers, packaging, and reusing drink containers.*
It allows you to give back to your community and preserve the land you live on.
It promotes others to enforce responsibility to recycle.
For working individuals, it changes your lifestyle. If you recycle at home, you are more likely to recycle at your place of business, setting a good example for others to follow.
In the long term, it can reduce the cost of recycling (which has already happened). YES this may cause some businesses to slow, but can lead to the rise of the recycling business. So even if the overall economy does not change much, there will be a constant demand for recycling services and jobs associated with them. We do have a limited supply of most things that are promoted for recycling, leading to higher cost in the long-run if we do not recycle.
The more people recycle, the lower the cost will be to recycle those products through capitalization of the market.
The business will have a "green" reputation, showing that they are going the extra mile to protect future earth. Consumers love to buy from responsible businesses.
Many businesses will arise as the demand for recycling increases. New and old recycling businesses will become more efficient and costs to recycle will be lower.
Many workers of a green business will feel like they are making an even bigger difference on a large-scale view; they will feel like they are a part of a mission to help protect our future, both environmentally and economically.
