Go Green With McCarthy Tire

Go Green with McCarthy TireAt McCarthy Tire we are proud to be a leader in the Go Green Initiative! Our company has worked to develop a long-range strategic plan, in which Employee Stewardship is identified as a critical component in preparing our locations for the future. We have partnered with our city, county and state governments in exciting ways, and developed a closer rapport with our scrap recyclers, energy providers and suppliers resulting in superior communication, cooperation and mutual satisfaction.

The world has a fixed amount of natural resources - some of which are already depleted. So as population growth greatly strains our finite resources, there are fewer resources available. If we intend to leave our children and grandchildren with the same standard of living we have enjoyed, we must preserve the foundation of that standard of living. We save for college educations, orthodontia, and weddings, but what about saving clean air, water, fuel sources and soil for future generations?

Some of the greatest threats to future resources come from things we throw away every day. Items, if sent to a local landfill, may leak through the bottom barrier and pollute the groundwater. This can contaminate everything from the soil in which our food grows, to the water which will eventually come out of aquifers and into our tap water. Many of these chemicals cannot be removed from the drinking water supply, or from the crops that are harvested from contaminated fields. The risks to human health are tremendous.

None of us operate in a vacuum. Our choices and behaviors have a ripple effect that reaches across the world today, and on to future generations. What we buy, what we do or do not recycle, what we “throw away” has an impact on an ever more interconnected planet. If we want to maintain the standard of living we currently enjoy and pass it on to our posterity, it will take an all-hands effort to preserve the foundation of that standard of living – clean air, water and soil.

The Go Green Initiative is the beginning of an important new shift in the way we treat our world. This grassroots program promotes the very best character traits in children and adults: caring for yourself and caring for others. Through simple, responsible behavior shifts, together we can protect human health through environmental stewardship.
