There are many people today trying to carve their niche in the business world. Some will set up major corporations, all trying to be the best at what they do. However over the past number of years, there has been a need to consider whether our business opportunities may actually be harming our planet.
The most widely recognized environmental degradation process has been that of the depletion of the ozone layer, followed closely by the emissions of greenhouse gases. As people become more aware of the droughts, famines, floods, heating up and in some cases cooling down of our planet, they have realized that we ourselves are the major contributors to the fast occurring changes that we see.
There have been many companies that have been formed on the foundation of preserving the environment, especially at this moment of realization when there is an outcry on the dangers we now face due to environmental depletion. However amongst them all, one new company stands tall. Green Traders Global is an online trading company that is dedicated to helping save the planet through the reduction of landfill.
Landfill is an ever increasing problem of the modern world. It has been estimated that the average person living in a developed country will produce somewhere between half to one and a quarter tones of waste each year and this is just whilst at home and does not include the work place. Majority of this waste will end up as landfill. Landfill can lead to contamination of groundwater, residual soil contamination and off gassing of the greenhouse gas Methane.
One might wonder how a trading website can help save the planet. There are many products that can be reused and one of the best ways of reusing them is by trading them with other like minded people. By joining a growing group of people with similar goals you can trade items that would normally end up as landfill, items such as jars, egg cartons, furniture, computers, and so much more, it can all be used again and again by others. Green Traders Global also promotes the active trading of fruit, vegetables, plants, trees and other garden materials, as it is more common than people realize that sometimes these items will go to waste when they could be going to someone who wants or in some cases need them. This is recycling at its very best as not only does it helps reduce landfill, but it also helps to form communities and social networks.
Green Traders Global allows members to trade items for other items and also to list items for free. So far, this is one of the best ways that modern technology has been put to use to help save the environment and to help connect people that appreciate nature, so it is kudos to Green Traders Global. Making The World Green, One Trade at a Time surely does befit that nature of work this company is doing for the world.
