Aurora, IL (PRWeb) February 8, 2015 – S&S Metal Recyclers is pleased to announce it will participate in the annual Earth Day celebration slated for April 22, 2014. More than 1 billion people and 190 countries are expected to participate, a number that has rapidly grown in recent years. Participating countries include Kenya, Vietnam, India, Australia, and many more. This year’s Earth day, much like past Earth Days, will focus on pressing environmental issues such as transportation, green buildings, clean energy, and cities of the future.
S&S Metal Recyclers is particularly intrigued with the Green Cities campaign that was launched in the fall of last year. The campaign helps cities around the world become more sustainable by reducing the carbon footprint of a number of major cities. The focus of the Green Cities campaign is on three major points: transportation, energy, and buildings.
While transportation is the single fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions in the world, there are plans for reduction in mind. The Green Cities campaign encourages cities to increase public transportation, develop additional bike routes, and improve walkability throughout each community.
With most of the world relying on old, inefficient, and dirty electric generation systems, the Green Cities campaign looks to help cities become more sustainable. The idea is to redesign current systems and begin using renewable energy as the primary source of energy.
In addition to transportation and energy systems, the Green Cities campaign aims to aid in the efficient design of buildings, which could decrease greenhouse gas emissions and promote a healthier environment. This is a major focus of the campaign and one S&S Metal Recyclers strongly believes in when it comes to commercial recycling.
S&S Metal Recyclers will closely follow the Green Cities campaign and looks forward to seeing the effect campaign efforts will have on cities in North America and the rest of the world. The Earth Day Network is working with partners this year to organize grassroots efforts to improve local policies, ordinances, and codes to encourage cities to become green city models.
In addition to the Green Cities campaign, Earth Day 2015 will feature a number of different programs geared toward sustainability and a brighter future. The Earth Day website has been counting “Acts of Green” and aims to accumulate 2 billion individual acts.
As a 100% green recycling company, S&S Metal Recyclers spends the majority of its time focusing on its own “Acts of Green.” These include residential, commercial, and industrial recycling programs as well as fundraising opportunities for schools and organizations.
