We over-consume, over-expand and overwhelm the wildlife of our environment. Our way of life, our daily decisions affect how much we live on the foods of our planet. Did you know that people’s diet is reponsible for 60% of the loss of biodiversity? But not only our food, but our water and energy consumption, place of residence, workplace, transportation, vacation, the machines, clothes, utensils and everything we serve for our convenience and the waste of everything – unfortunately, all leave their mark on Earth.
The Earth Day, held for the 31st time in Hungary and for the 51st time globally, on April 22 is meant to draw attention to the fact that we should not expect a solution from others, but we, ourselves, must do something for the future of our grandchildren and that we have to finally realize it.
What can you do?
Green your environment; plant a tree; produce crops; compost; starve your trash; do not buy packaged things; live consciously without plastics; switch to environmentally friendly detergents; eat fresh, homemade food instead of semi-finished, finished products; eat less meat and more vegetables and fruits (e.g. meatless Mondays); avoid unnecessary consumption (not just in the case of food, but also clothes, mobile phones, etc.); switch to public transport or cycling, use renewable energy sources! You probably know: many a little makes a mickle…
There is a day every year when humanity’s management of natural resources becomes unprofitable. After the day of ecological overconsumption, nature is no longer able to reproduce what society needs based on its own renewable capacity, that is, what is depleted after that day is bolted down by humanity from next year’s capacity. Unfortunately, this day is getting earlier every year, and in recent years it already happens during the summer months.
There is no much time left, according to the latest climate reports, the moment when the situation becomes irreversible is approaching dangerously. Over the last 30 years, extreme weather events, heavy rains or prolonged droughts, hurricanes, typhoons, melting ice caps, rising average temperatures have all been ominous signs of climate change. Scientists are predicting roughly another 9 years so far until the moment comes, the only question is, what are you doing against it?
ANY Team is also trying to do for a better tomorrow. One and a half years ago, as part of a community tree planting, 30 native trees have found there new home in the neighbourhood of our new plant. We are at the forefront of cycling, storage is provided for bicycles at all our sites. We also have already taken part in the “Bike to work!” campaign several times. We strive to reduce the use of PET bottles and plastic cups, and instead provide water dispensers that our colleagues can use with their own glasses. We are reducing the use of office paper, our constantly evolving in-house IT programs help conscious paperlessness. In short, it is no coincidence that we received the “Green Printing Company of the Year” award for the 10th time last year.
