We talk a lot about the work we do with the hospitality industry, but that industry alone is not the only one that we have had the pleasure of working with. We’ve also had the opportunity to work alongside universities and public schools, and at times that can be even more rewarding. We’re not only helping the environment, but helping schools save money that can be re-invested in the students that are enrolled at each of these schools and universities.
However, like the hotel industry, schools aren’t immune to the effects the recession has had on our nation. Public schools are facing budget cuts much the same way businesses did, and in some areas, the cuts faced are graver than others.
A look at this map shows how dire the situation can potentially be. But as the US News article states there is legislation that can be passed which may lessen or even prevent the cuts these state schools face. That’s a good temporary solution, but long term may not be as fiscally useful. We need to treat these schools in much the same way we need to treat our environment, with sustainability.
We provide a service much like what would be needed to make this sustainability possible; however others must step in and make sure that this matter gets all the proper attention it deserves.
