Benefits for the Planet
Globally, over 60 percent of total CH4 emissions come from human activities, including from waste management activities. (1)
Solid waste landfills are the single largest man-made source of methane gas in the United States. Ton for ton, waste prevention, reuse, and recycling / composting reduce more pollution, save more energy, and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions more than any other activity. (2)
GFS' recycling efforts and products are tailored to reduce emissions and to eliminate environmental liabilities. The time is now -- we address this global problem as a business for the good of our planetary ecosystem and the living population within it.
