Our world is a beautiful place to live in. Nature has truly blessed us with everything that we need to live and enjoy our lives on this earth. Over the years, technological advancements have also enabled us to mold Mother Nature and all that she has to offer in order to make our lives easier and to fulfill our wants and needs. However, technological advancements have been on of the leading causes of environmental issues ranging from frequent earthquakes, draughts, floods, volcanic eruptions and changes in the climate. Environmental changes can be deadly and has even lead to the extinction of many species from Earth.
This is why the seriousness of the degradation of the environment has been considered an important point in debates all across the world. Governments are already doing their bit to make sure that our activities don’t harm the environment we live in; however, it is also up to us as persons as well as business owners to do what we can to make sure that our activities are not harmful to our environment.
Logistic businesses have a major impact on the environment because they come into contact with natural resources in bulk on a daily basis. More specifically, logistics businesses are directly connected to various forms of transportation that run on fossil fuels which have harmful impacts on our environment. In addition, the amount in which we are burning fossil fuel is much higher than the rate at which it is being produced. This is why going green has become a global movement for all businesses including logistics businesses!
Clearly, going green is the need of the hour irrespective of the business you are involved in. Some of the logistic businesses have already started doing their bit by making the maximum use of natural resources, avoiding wastage and considering healthy environmental practices.
Going green is a term which refers to making use of environment resources in a manner that they can be used to their full potential. Apart from this, it also focuses on enlightening people how they can avoid practices which may lead to depletion of the environment.
There are individuals as well as businesses that are willing to go green but do not actually know that what they should exactly do for it! Here is your basic guide to going green!
|Reduce the use of natural resources as much as possible. If you are picking up your vehicle to go short distances then try taking a walk instead. This will keep you as well as the environment healthy.||See if a natural resource can be used again in order to make sure that you use it to its maximum potential. For example, a cloth doesn’t needs to be thrown after a single use and can be reused for dusting, cleaning etc.||Recycling is to reproduce something from waste and use it again. Glass is an ultimate good which doesn’t needs to be thrown and can easily be melted and recycled. So is plastic and many other things which can be recycled to produce new goods.|
As we discussed, logistic companies have also started going green. Here is an examples of this.
One thing which every logistic company including makes use of during moving is cartons. Your goods are packed securely into to cardboard cartons and then loaded for movement. Carton not just provides safety to your precious items but also helps you in systematically packing your things as per your moving plans. These cartons can be easily reused rather than throwing them away after a single use. Some movers have started this practice and stats reveal cartons which were demolished after a single use are now being used for making up to 4-5 moves!
Roadways is still the most popular form of moving as it is cheaper and easier as compared to any other form. Filling up your vehicles’ wheels with nitrogen instead of air helps in saving up to 10-15% fuel. This is a tried and trusted method of saving fuel. Apart from this, nitrogen stays in the longer and also increases the life of the wheels which makes sure that you even make use of your fleet’s tyres for a longer period of time.
Usually petrol or diesel vehicles are used for carrying goods. These include heavy trucks to small vans which are used for the process of moving. Companies are shifting gradually to better forms of fuel which are environment friendly as well as cheaper. These include CNG and LPG gas. Getting your fleet fitted with CNG or LPG gas kits is going to be just a onetime expense which will pay you and the environment back in future.
