Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
While the U.S. represents just 4 percent of the world’s population, we produce 12 percent of global municipal solid waste. It’s estimated that each person produces about 234 pounds of waste per year.
Reducing waste, recycling, and reusing or repurposing items are some of the most important, simplest ways to reduce negative impacts on the environment.
At Easton, we take these actions seriously with:
- 11, 2-yard recycling containers for glass and plastic placed throughout the property
- A partnership with Lowe’s in Easton Market to recycle changed-out, fluorescent lightbulbs (they’ll recycle yours too!)
- A battery recycling service for guests – simply bring used batteries to the Guest Services desk in the Easton Station Building
- 8 loading docks with cardboard recycling compactors
- A partnership with Habitat Restore, Habitat for Humanity’s repurposing shop, to deliver surplus construction materials
- Recyclable signage, awnings and light poles
- Recycling receptacles in offices throughout the property
- Handouts and marketing materials printed on recycled paper OR paper that is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
- All internal memos and forms circulated electronically
