By talking with the Chamber, I learned that businesses in our metropolitan area are adopting processes that do not harm the environment. From my group mates’ interviews, I learned that small businesses face many challenges, and at the end of the day, many are trying to keep their doors open and take care of the employees who depend on them. Some large businesses, which look like the big guys with all the money, are actually giving back by using their expertise in architecture, engineering or similar to help other businesses achieve change.
So back to that recipe — I still think we have a long way to go, but I can’t help but be optimistic. Businesses in other communities are making similar changes, and now I look at all the emissions, energy use and waste as opportunities, where a big impact can be made to help the environment. I hope that our messages will contribute to that change, and I am grateful for having had this opportunity.
