The green road to recovery
A decade ago environmentalists and green advocates worked hard to make people listen to them.
Today it seems the world looks through green-tinted glasses even in economically tough times. As President Obama stood up this week and declared "We will recover" in his historical first speech to Congress, one of the areas he called out was for Congress to pass a climate change bill to drive the production of more renewable energy and a market-based cap on carbon pollution.
From across the board plans for new energy sources and transportation reform through to targeted rewards for individuals to think and act green in everyday life, the new Government is helping citizens to examine their lifestyle choices and to consider the impact we each have on the environment.
Here at The Refinishing Touch, it is no secret that we've been walking the green road since we were founded in 1977. It's the nature of our business and our belief that innovation and dedication can create new environmentally-friendly ways of doing things that were once environmentally damaging.
To us, this isn't a trend, it's a belief. Next week, we're going to be looking at some of the old ways of doing things and how creativity and technology can ensure "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle": three cornerstones of being green and of our mission here at The Refinishing Touch.
