Who doesn’t appreciate the sight and sound of a babbling brook, beautiful rivers and majestic oceans. It seems reasonable, therefore, to think we must all agree on the importance of taking time to reflect on water stewardship.

The development and evolution of the chemical industry is directly responsible for many of the technical advancements that have emerged since the late 19th century. However, it was not until the 1980s that the environment became a priority for the chemical industry. This was prompted largely by stricter environmental regulations and a need to address the sector’s poor…

If Earth had no atmosphere, it would be a frozen planet without life. Gases in the atmosphere temporarily trap some of the energy from the sun and convert it to heat, which maintains an average surface temperature on earth that is capable of sustaining life.

ENVIRO RX, September 2017

It has been estimated we waste roughly 40 percent of all the food we produce. Shame on us! This is an environmental disaster. Food production is a resource-intensive process, requiring water, energy, land, human labour plus an elaborate web of production, processing and distribution infrastructure. When we throw away food we also squander all these…

Two opposing scenarios captured my attention recently. The first scenario was seeing the photo of a young woman wading through garbage just to be able to go surfboarding. The visual impact brought me to tears. I have posted the photo on the EAG website this month not to shock you but to inspire you into…
