As we watch our neighbors pull down the holiday lights from their houses, we at a New Beginning have begun to put up ours. We have teamed up with Greenleaf Energy Solutions to remove our old lighting with fixtures that significantly decrease our carbon footprint and promote environmental sustainability. This has been a very exciting opportunity for us and we are thrilled with the results and we hope you will be too!
Greenleaf is a remarkable company that helps both businesses and private households upgrade their lighting with more environmentally conscious solutions. Our lighting project will bring significant benefits to both our business and the environment. It is calculated that a New Beginning will, within a 15 year lifespan, avoid 680,849 pounds of Carbon Dioxide, 1,326 pounds of Nitrogen Oxides, and 2,653 pounds of Sulfur Dioxide emissions. This means that the new lighting will reduce air pollutants and therefore improve air quality.
Here is another way to look at these numbers. This project is equivalent to 330,509 pounds of coal not being burned, 84 acres of forestation added, 59 cars removed from road, and is equivalent to 37 homes being provided with electricity. The benefits are truly extraordinary and we are so grateful to Greenleaf Energy Solutions for helping us follow our mission to help our planet.
We at a New Beginning deeply care about the environment and want to make true and tangible efforts to promote “green” lifestyles. We are fortunate to be under the leadership of Aveda, which has successfully promoted eco-friendly solutions for businesses. From using 100% wind power for manufacturing to using organic ingredients in our products, Aveda is a true trailblazer. It is inspiring to work for a company that is not only passionate about the environment, but they continually act upon that passion.
“Our mission is to care for the world that we live in” and by using Greenleaf Energy Solutions, A New Beginning has made yet another step in achieving this goal. Protecting the earth is imperative and we hope that you feel the same way.
Share with us what kind of eco-friendly solutions you have in your homes. If you have any ideas on how to decrease our carbon footprints we want to hear about it!
