While the world will celebrate Earth Day on Thursday, April 22, we are celebrating the environment all week long. April 19 – 23 is Graham’s Environment Week.
As a company, we are continuously improving our environmental leadership by promoting and encouraging sustainable construction practices – from the types of materials used to deliver our projects, to recycling, reusing and repurposing materials, where possible.
With many of our employees still working from home, this year Environment Week extends beyond the jobsite and into the home. We are focusing on waste minimization. Here are five Rs to remember this week and throughout the year:
- Refuse – to buy unnucessary items
- Reduce – consume less
- Reuse – rely more on items that can be used over and over
- Re-purpose – use something for another purpose isntead of throwing it away
- Recycle – paper, glass cans, platics and buy items made from recycled materials
