Water Efficiency

Remember we will always have what we need.
It may be in another form.
You neither gain nor lose anything.
Value your water, appreciate it and manage its use and you get more out of it.

Avoiding watering gardens on windy days;
Clean paths by sweeping
Fix leaks as soon as they happen or as soon as they are recognised.
Install water efficient equipment.
Monitor water usage.
Read the water meter.
Reduce water use in the work kitchen.
Recycle water
Reduce unnecessary water usage.
Use recycled or rain water where possible.
Install a Rain Water Tank.
Water gardens during the coolest part of the day
Watering trees and shrubs, which have deep root systems less weekly

The Earth Mission

Our Mission is to:
Live a simpler life.
Live as part of the earth, part of the tides, the natural rhythms, the planets and the elements.
Align the values of the earth with family, community, work and mine.
Live with less.
Make better use of our resources.
Make better use of our time.

“A robin eats worms in the spring, because it needs the protein to lay eggs and raise chicks.
A robin eats fruit in the summer, because food is abundant and carbohydrates are lightweight energy.
And a robin eats seeds and nuts in the fall, to store fats for the long flight south.
In the same way, it is important for people to vary their diet throughout the year to remain healthy.
Eating locally does that.
It keeps you in touch with the cycle of nature wherever you live."

In our business world, the impact of our operations and actions on our networks, the community and the environment is something we take very seriously.
Feedback from clients, suppliers, associates, alliance partners, employees, shareholders, the community and the environment identifies the voids – the unfulfilled need and this provides the greatest opportunities for change and improvement.
Our quest is never ending as we collect, analyse, research, educate and share our information and ideas as individuals and as a company in the journey of our commitment to manage the impact of our business on the health and safety of our employees, contractors and members of the communities in which we operate and on the environment.

Please join us in this commitment by observing our Push The Earth policy when you do business with us.

Together we can make a difference.
