Considering the time of year, and amidst a consumer driven economy, it is safe to say that we produce a large amount of waste. Now, that being said, a lot of what is waste didn’t necessarily start out as junk or trash. For example, you bought your child a big new playhouse for Christmas. That playhouse came in a large box and within that box was a number of other boxes that housed all the playhouse’s tools and smaller pieces. After you’re done ripping through the wrapping paper and discarding the cardboard, you finally start putting the piece together. Initially, the paper and the cardboard are what some would consider trash. However, those are items that can be RECYCLED! Below is a few core values we at Fire Dawgs run our business based on:
A main responsibility that we have as tenants on Earth is to treat this planet as something that we intend to pass on to our loved ones in a better condition than we found it. The main way to do that is to approach our life as if we are merely tenants of the land. As a tenant, we have responsibilities and chores so to speak to keep the property in good condition and one of those is finding alternative solutions to waste. In the aformentioned example, that playset you put up a few years ago may now be a weathered piece of junk after having been exposed to the elements for so long. That being said, assuming this product is mainly comprised of plastic, we have another Recycling option! When we recycle, we create the opportunity to ReUse.
