Hydraulic Fracturing – or fracking – is the process of injecting water, chemicals and sand into shale rock to release natural gas. There are numerous negative consequences of fracking near communities, as the process produces a toxic wastewater that cannot be treated by standard water sanitation facilities. In fact, people who live in areas where fracking occur may be consuming toxic water straight from their faucets.
Business owners spend many hours finding ways to store necessary office supplies in their facilities. Beyond the printer, ink cartridges, pads of paper and folders, they have to worry about making room for the large jugs of water that are delivered regularly for their water coolers. These disposable plastic jugs take up space and are bad for the environment. Finding a way to eliminate jugs from the workplace may save a business money and help owners make room for more essential supplies.
