We might not be perfect when it comes to Plastic Free July, but we certainly welcome the challenge to reduce waste as often as we can. We love helping to spread information about plastic free alternatives, and tips on how to avoid excess plastic packaging. This year, we’re planning to finish out the month with a trash audit, as well as a Plastic Free July giveaway based around products found in Maine. Visit our social media accounts, and enter for a chance to win a great bundle of products from Dental Lace, LooHoo Dryer Balls, GoGo Refill and Wayward Chickadee. All of these amazing businesses are located here in Maine, and all support reducing plastic waste.
Lately, I’ve been seeing fields near Dental Lace Inc being converted to solar farms. I wrote to ReVision Energy (our local solar panel company) and asked why solar companies don't use large buildings like Walmarts, schools, chicken barns, etc.
ReVision Energy believes it is absolutely critical that we all take full advantage of every available productive rooftop space in the transition to renewable energy. In fact, this makes up the bulk of the work in which ReVision Energy engages. They say that schools, barns, and large business structures represent ideal opportunities for solar panel installation, and they are always thrilled to install there. They hope that in the future more companies like Walmart will make a serious investment in solar power!
At the same time, they recognize the ways in which community solar farms can be an important piece of the sustainability puzzle. ReVision Energy approaches land mounted solar panels as good stewards of the land, and promotes environmental health, rather than destroying existing ecosystems.
