“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.” Leo Tolstoy
Protecting the link between man and nature has become more important than ever. As much as we’d like to think that forcing big plastic, fuel, and meat corporations (to name a few) to close their doors would save the planet, it’s unfortunately not that simple. Our current world and lifestyles are too reliant on fossil fuels etc.
So, what do we do? Can we do anything?
Yes, always! We can look for eco-friendly and sustainable paths that benefit the earth and her people, like recycling, large and small scale, and applying eco-friendly manufacturing protocols.
“The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.” Gaylord Nelson

What is eco-friendly manufacturing?
An eco-friendly or sustainable manufacturing process minimizes waste and pollution while maximizing efficiency. This can be accomplished through various ways, such as using recycled materials, renewable energy, or more efficient production methods.
To be truly sustainable, a product must be manufactured in an eco-friendly manner from start to finish. This means that all steps of the production process, from sourcing raw materials to shipping the finished product, must be done in a way that minimizes the environmental impact.
By implementing eco-friendly measures, manufacturers can significantly reduce their environmental footprint and help create a more sustainable future.
“To leave the world better than you found it, sometimes you have to pick up other people’s trash.” Bill Nye
The benefits of a sustainable manufacturing practice
Sustainable manufacturing has many benefits, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions and waste and improved resource efficiency. Sustainable manufacturing also has the potential to create new jobs and drive economic growth. In fact, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization estimates that every job in the sustainable manufacturing sector creates three more jobs in other sectors.
Sustainable manufacturing is essential for protecting our environment and ensuring a bright future for generations to come.
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.” Jane Goodall
