Press Release::Pollution and Environment

We must focus more on supply chains and systems if we are to reduce pollution.
We must take responsibility for the pollution created in the whole process not just our part so that 
collaboratively we can impact the transportation, distribution and logisitics.
Here are five examples where we didnt respond as a system and now the cost to the environment and our health is extremely high.

Pollution comes from the cars we drive to the cleaning chemicals we use and the carpet and paint on our walls. With each decision to purchase a new product, drive your car, or use chemicals for pest control you are contributing to pollution.

•The World Health Organization states that 2.4 million people die each year from causes directly related to air pollution.  The illnesses include aggravated asthmabronchitis,  emphysema, lung and heart diseases, and respiratory allergies.

•The worst air pollutant emissions are caused by the combustion of petroleum products—diesel oil, heating oil, and heavy fuel oil. Although air pollution comes from large industrial plants, a larger source of pollution comes from transportation.

•Over the past two decades The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (aka Plastic Soup) has been accumulating in the North Pacific and is now larger than the state of Texas !  This large floating island of plastic and non-biodegradable trash is from non-recycled excessive human consumption.

•According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the U.S. has 3,091 active landfills and over 10,000 inactive municipal landfills.  Although proper measurements in most cases have been made (liner and leach ate collection system), they still leach harmful and potentially fatal toxins into the soil, water, and air.
