How to Lower Your Business's Carbon Footprint
We’ve all heard the statistics: companies are responsible for over half of the total amount of greenhouse gases that are emitted into the environment. It’s one of the main reasons that so many businesses have tried to reduce their carbon footprint and shake the reputation. If your business hasn’t taken that route just yet, there are a few things it can do to reduce its carbon footprint and become a more environmentally conscious member of the community as well as help save a few dollars in the process.
One of the easiest and most cost effective methods of reducing your company’s carbon footprint is to purchase used containers. Buying used containers for your business has two significant benefits: economic and environmental. For those companies who rely on the use of containers for warehouse storage and organization as well as customer shipments and other uses, the cost of purchasing containers is quite high. And it’s not just about the bottom line on the invoice you get when you order.
Regardless of what container you choose, there is a lot of effort and environmental impacts that goes into producing it. Natural resources are used in the production of these containers as well as a significant amount of energy. And, of course, there is the waste by products that are produced along with the final product, some of which can be toxic to the environment. But, when you purchase used containers, all of these environmental impacts are eliminated resulting in a lower carbon footprint along with a lower cost to acquire the products you need to run your business.
Of course, purchasing used containers also has a positive economic impact as well. By buying used containers, you reduce your overall cost to acquire them, which allows you to focus more of your most valuable resource into expanding and improving your business.
