-- Eco - Celebration --

Yesterday (the 16th) was International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.

Each of us can play a role in creating a healthier planet for all - here at home, here in our office, there in our yard or here at work... where ever we are, what ever we do, we have an impact - it is up to us to chose what that impact will be.

Here is a good example of a company stepping up to create positive change, and in doing so they inspire their competitors to meet or beat their efforts.

Officials at the Costco Wholesale in Livermore estimate that their green business initiatives over the last 4 months alone has diverted 55 tons of “waste”.

One of the most exciting things that could come about because of the positive results of this initiative is that it may very well set a standard for Costco's 500-plus warehouses worldwide to cut their landfill contributions by 80 % as well.

According to the article I read, approximately 75% of the 65 tons of waste generated each month was organics. As most of you who read our blog, articles, books or listen to our radio show - you are already aware that keeping organics out of the landfill is the key to reducing contributions to global warming. The bonus of course is that Livermore branch of Costco creates a viable product from these organics by-way of a local vermiculture outfit and then distributed to local farmers. If history has taught us anything it would be that building healthy soils is key to a healthy society.
