Pollution prevention involves looking at what causes waste and pollution in a particular situation and figuring out the best ways to lessen waste or prevent it all together.
In order to be successful, I had to obtain a commitment from my senior leadership to provide resources to carry out the implementation of P2 program.
I began defining the scope of the P2 plan and determining the areas upon which to focus.
Beginning with a review of current processes and procedures, I was able to identifying any inefficiencies and shortfalls.
The findings afforded a basis for establishing objectives and feature P2 targets.
I asked myself what I was trying to accomplish with the P2 plan.“People say that a time machine can’t be invented, but they’ve already invented a device that can stop time, cameras are the world’s first time machines…The steel mill, the coal mines, the train tracks, the smog in the sky, I’ve been able to rescue it on super-8 and Kodachrome, and no one can remediate those photographs, I can keep them as long as I want to.” ― tags: canada, cape-breton, capture, coal, coal-mine, darkroom, digital, film, industrial, kodachrome, kodak, memories, nostalgia, nova-scotia, photo, photograph, polaroid, pollution, smog, steel-mill, super-8, train “To speak of ‘limits to growth’ under a capitalistic market economy is as meaningless as to speak of limits of warfare under a warrior society.Even before it entered the city, it was slow and heavy with the silt of the plains, and by the time it got to The Shades even an agnostic could have walked across it.It was hard to drown in the Ankh, but easy to suffocate.” ― tags: arrogance, arrogant, balance, corruption, ego, egotism, females, flaunt, girls, gossip, gossiping, head, hold-head, humble, humility, ignorant, immaterial, integrity, ladies, lady, materialism, no-merit, no-substance, no-value, pollution, proud, quality, shallow, shallowness, sins, superficial, superficiality, vain, valueless, vanity, virtue, woman, women, women-rights, women-strengths “Social ecology is based on the conviction that nearly all of our present ecological problems originate in deep-seated social problems.I shall try to be meek, not because I want the earth - you can keep it, after the way you've fucked it around it's not worth having - but because I too should like to be chosen of God. Besides, I like animals better than you bastards.” ― “Until society can be reclaimed by an undivided humanity that will use its collective wisdom, cultural achievements, technological innovations, scientific knowledge, and innate creativity for its own benefit and for that of the natural world, all ecological problems will have their roots in social problems.” ― “The internal combustion engine, one of the greatest technological advancements in history, has an unfortunate downside, namely air pollution so thick that, very soon, sixty-four packs of crayons will include the color Sky Brown” ― “Any attempt to solve the ecological crisis within a bourgeois framework must be dismissed as chimerical. Competition and accumulation constitute its very law of life, a law …summarised in the phrase, ‘production for the sake of production.’ Anything, however hallowed or rare, ‘has its price’ and is fair game for the marketplace.My first task was to cut back waste levels and conserve capital.An initial proposal to establish a Pollution Prevention program, also known as P2, was considered to foster an environmental mindset for day-to-day activities.Telling us that we need to evolve.” ― “It was exciting to be off on a journey she had looked forward to for months.Oddly, the billowing diesel fumes of the airport did not smell like suffocating effluence, it assumed a peculiar pungent scent that morning, like the beginning of a new adventure, if an adventure could exude a fragrance.” ― tags: adventure, adventures, airport, airports, excitement, experiences, flying, funny, i-love-to-travel, i-love-vacations, jet, journey, odd-humor, odd-observation, pollution, scents, travel, traveling, travelling, vacation “And so Mort came at last to the river Ankh, greatest of rivers.
