Earth Day, April 22nd, is the perfect time to take stock of your efforts to protect the planet. Are you doing your part? Allegro can help.
Save gas and reduce emissions.
Walk, bike, power chair or roll to the store and take your Folding Shopping Cart
to transport your groceries home. Wouldn’t hurt you to get a little exercise, either. While you’re there, remember to buy only local, regional or in-season products whenever you can. You can freeze seasonal products for later. There’s nothing better than sweet corn in the winter.
Don’t mind the packaging.
Some of Allegro’s products are shipped without ‘extra padding’. Take Pediasure
for example. The risk of damage to the product is low compared to the damaged caused to the environment due to the extra waste. If these items arrive a little banged up, our customers are pretty much fine with it (thank you) as long as the product hasn’t been compromised. Of course, we’ll gladly replace anything that arrives damaged.
Buy products in bulk.
Reduce packaging waste and fuel costs plus save yourself a little moohlah by buying a bigger size. Allegro carries lots of bulk products. For quotes on sizes not displayed on AllegroMedical.com,
give Nick a call at 1-800-861-3211 ext 220.
Select non-toxic or less toxic cleaning products.
For example, Viraguard Disinfectant Cleaner
is nontoxic and biodegradable. Not to mention it kills bacteria, viruses and fungus. Woah. It even comes in a case of 12. Nice. Actually, you should check out all of our Viraguard products.
Yes, you can use them at home.
If you’re not already recycling, get on it.
Recycle programs are everywhere. Glass, metal, plastics and paper are collected, separated and processed into new materials or products. Store your products for disposal in this durable Household Disposal Basket
Start a composting program.
Turn food and yard waste into new soil for your vegetable garden by composting. These Easi-Grip Gardening Tools will help get you started.
Buy recycled products and packaging.
What goes around, comes around. To keep recycle programs going, they have to be economically feasible. Help out by buying products made from recycled products. For example, these portable, long-lasting, indoor/outdoor EZ-Access Rubber Threshold Ramps are made from 100% recycled tires.
Keep stuff out of the landfills.
Buy reusable bedpads, chair pads, leg bags, cold packs, panties, briefs, washcloths and drinking straws. Allegro has hundreds of reusable products
that will help the environment and your pocketbook.
Give your leftovers to someone else.
This includes hazardous waste such as paint, cleaners, oil, batteries and pesticides. Otherwise, dispose of it correctly! For disposal of needles, syringes and blood needle holders, be sure to use a Sharps
Repair, donate and give things away.
Think before you throw out that old coffee table. There are plenty of people who need it. Use local programs such as the Goodwill and Salvation Army or Freecycle to get and to give.
See the EPA
for more ways that you can help save the globe.
As always, Allegro (and the world) thanks you for your support and your business.
