Celebrating Earth Day

Earth Day is one of those things I learned about in elementary school. I remember running home to tell my mom that each drop of water we waste actually becomes a gallon of wasted water for the earth! Like my mom reacted at the time, I now don't think that's true. My first grade brain must have exaggerated the concept. For this year's Earth Day, I decided to volunteer at the local nature center's event, helping with a craft table for children making magazine bead necklaces. Lots of fun! Volunteers before me had made thousands of beads and even sorted them by color. Looking around, I spotted a couple Lifetime tables. I asked one of the vendors a little about her booth then let her know I work for the company who made her table. She immediatley beamed "I love this table!" and went on to say that she bought it for a certain purpouse but uses it for everything. Needless to say, my heart swelled a little with pride.

At Lifetime, I like to say that we're a little greener than you think. I know almost all of our engineers personally, and know that they work hard to create products that are built to last and won't end up in landfills. Lifetime's High Density Plastic (HDPE) products are also 100% recycleable. At Lifetime, we also re-grind the excess plastic and defunct plastic parts, and use the regrind in other plastic products. Many of our black plastic products, including the Lifetime wheelbarrow tub are made from 100% recycled material. Most recently, Lifetime always recycles the steel we use, and we have recently been trying various ways to recycle cardboard used in our factory too. Lifetime also has a strict policy to never let liquid from machines out of the facility, where they seep into the drainage system. 

Earth Day is all about appreciating the natural resources we have and finding ways to protect them. It's a good remider for us all, companies and families, to try a few small things every day that might make a big difference.
