We need to protect the earth, for us and future generations! Our resources are not infinite. Water is too often squandered, paying little attention to its waste. In many countries energy is still used in irresponsible ways related to old manufacturing processes. We pledge to save water, energy and reduce our carbon footprint. We will continuously investigate in new recycling techniques, and better processes to reduce use of fossil fuels.
