Cerno Planting Trees and Assisting with Local Wetlands Restoration
April 22nd was Earth Day, and the hashtag #earthdayeveryday, definitely went viral all over social media. We agree that the aggregate good that will come from adopting an Earth Day everyday mindset would provide significant and important results.
Last year Cerno had the opportunity to team up with The Laguna Canyon Foundation and Restoration Ecologist Derek Ostensen to donate and plant trees in Aliso Canyon. When the trees grow, they will help to restore what used to be functioning natural wetlands. The trees and vegetation in the creekbed help to filter runoff before the water makes its way to the South Laguna beaches where we grew up.
As a manufacturer, we use natural resources but always do our best to use them responsibly. The most environmentally responsible thing a manufacturer can do is make high-quality products that are built to last, so they do not end up in a landfill.
We also always strive to get the highest yields possible out of our raw materials. We recycle the majority of our scrap metal and we donate a lot of our extra wood to local craftspeople.
Making everything at one location is also inherently better for the environment because it reduces the number of trips that the materials/products take from the raw material stage to finished product and then onto the customer.
We know there is always an opportunity to do more and we will be teaming up with the Laguna Canyon Foundation again soon to plant more trees.
