A pril is here, and what an exciting month it is! Tulips burst from the soil and show off their bright petals, gray skies surrender to sunshine, and for a moment, we sit back, take a breath, and let ourselves be awestruck by the beauty of this world. It is only fitting that Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22, when the brilliance of nature captures our attention. Earth Day is a great time to remind ourselves of the importance of protecting the Earth; it’s our home, our children’s home, and our grandchildren’s home. At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we have made it a priority to be a green business and to make environmentally friendly choices. Below are a few of the steps we have taken to become an environmentally conscious business. • We went “paperless.”Years ago, as our client base grew, we noticed the amount of paper we were using was increasing as well. In fact, it was out of hand. Although we were used to the old system of printing everything on paper and filing it away, we made the decision to go paperless. All documents we receive are now scanned into our secure system for easy finding and then recycled. If a document can simply be prepared on a computer and saved to the system without being printed, we do that. Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. thank you
• We recycle. If an item can be recycled, we do so. We have designated areas in each of our buildings where materials can be placed to be recycled. • We use technology to communicate whenever a paper document is not necessary. A client portal is used to contact clients, communicate with clients, and share documents. The portal eliminates the need to print, stuff envelopes, and mail. • We use LED lights. As we change the lights in our offices, we’ve been replacing them with LED lights. LED lights not only last longer than other types of lighting, but they also use less energy. • We use bottleless watercoolers. Employees at each of our office buildings have access to a bottleless, filtered watercooler (a water system that does not require the use of a large plastic water jug). Employees are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles to fill, decreasing our use of plastic tremendously. • We volunteer with United Way. Each year, we volunteer with United Way to clean up litter in our community. Some of the aforementioned steps were easier to implement than others. It just takes one step to get started. We encourage you to take a look at the choices you make in your own business or home, and we challenge you to join us on our journey of making responsible, eco-friendly choices.
