Being in the transportation industry, it’s not always the easiest being “Green”, but years ago here at Say Cargo Express we made this one of strategic initiatives. From simple action steps we have taken like recycling old pallets and not using plastic water bottles to larger steps we have taken like becoming a SmartWay Transport Partner, we pride ourselves as a company on reducing our carbon footprint. Our ultimate goal is to run all of our trucks and ground freight on biofuels like some touring musicians are doing (Jack Johnson and Willie Nelson in particular, http://www.onearth.org/community-blog/jack-johnson-continues-on-the-biodiesel-wave-for-to-the-sea-tour).
Here are some “Green” organizations, foundations and companies that Say Cargo Express supports through time volunteered or monetary donations…
Surfrider Foundation – http://www.surfrider.org/
Heal the Bay – http://www.healthebay.org/
SmartWay Transport Partners – http://www.epa.gov/smartwaylogistics/
