I’m not a fan of horror movies, but it seems like each day the news has a new frightening tale of pollution attacking our waterways, the air we breathe and even our homes. It’s truly terrifying the level of environmental stress our world is under. I’d prefer a slasher film to the reality of what we’re facing.

Here’s the question, though: Is your industry part of the problem or part of the solution? Here’s an even more important question: If your industry has a pollution problem, what are you doing to fix it?

At Orange Orchard, we work with environmentally conscious companies already doing their part to fight air pollution, water pollution and soil pollution. However, we’ve also made it a goal to help industries that are working to, well, clean up their act.

Small acts can be mighty, such as Kroger phasing out plastic bags. The Environmental Protection Agency reported that more than 380 billion plastic bags are using in the U.S. every year. Kroger and other chains, like Starbucks are fighting back when it comes to plastic and the pollution dangers they pose. Every effort helps, so ask yourself: What can you do?

If your industry has a pollution problem, we can help. Not only can an environmental public relations agency create a plan of action to implement, but we can raise awareness of the steps you’re taking to go green. The steps you take to lessen the pollution you’re putting out not only help the environment, but they help your brand.

Consumers care more about the environment and the effects industries are having on our world now than they have ever before. Your company is being scrutinized not only for the products you produce but for the processes you’ve used in creating them.

At Orange Orchard, we can get you on an environmentally friendly path, and we can share your story. These things take time, so you better get started. We’d love to connect with you and help however we can.
