Perhaps it’s a growing awareness in the community, or perhaps it’s just a product of getting older … either way, it’s hard to deny the importance of recycling. In addition to being die-hard recyclers here at Cfx, Inc., we also utilize additional conservation methods such as composting. Composting is the process of salvaging and reusing decayed organic material, primarily as a source of plant fertilizer, and ultimately with the goal of reducing waste in the process.
Cfx extends a portion of their rectory office space to the nonprofit organizations St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance, who are big time players in conservation and environmentalism in St. Louis and its surrounding communities. Holding events throughout each year, St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance are advocates for all things environmentally-conscious. It was through their encouragement and influence that Cfx came to compost leftover foods, along with many other lesser known practices such as recycling electronic equipment, pharmaceuticals, and many other items most would simply throw in their trash can.
Doing business only a handful of miles away from the West Lake Landfill, all it takes is one drive by on the highway with the window cracked to smell the detriment that resides under the mountains of trash people produce every day, not to mention the radioactive waste that is known to exist in that landfill (along with countless others). While we can’t fix our waste problem overnight, we can all contribute to a better tomorrow. Cfx invites you to join us in raising awareness for more effective and responsible recycling and waste disposal.
