The purpose of this campaign is to educate and inform the Kodiak community about how to reduce energy consumption, recycle resources and products and reuse rather than discard materials.
The United States is the world’s largest consumer of aluminum cans yet lags behind other industrialized nations in the percentage of these cans that we recycle. When you recycle a soda can it can reappear on your grocer’s shelf in just 60 days. That’s because aluminum is specifically engineered for 100% recycling – nothing is wasted and the energy required to produce it is only one twentieth of that needed to produce a new can from ore. A thirty percent increase in recycled aluminum would eliminate our dependence on imported aluminum and reduce our carbon footprint.

The purpose of this campaign is to educate and inform the Kodiak community about how to reduce energy consumption, recycle resources and products and reuse rather than discard materials. Our goal is to define terms such as “carbon footprint”, offer useful tips for energy conservation that all of us can use, promote responsible use of our resources, offer suggestions for sustainable development and recognize national, state and most importantly local initiatives and programs addressing sustainability issues.
Sustainable Development: Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” From the time sustainable development was first endorsed at the UN General Assembly in 1987, the parallel concept of education to support sustainable development has also been explored. Research shows that basic education is key to a nation’s ability to develop and achieve sustainability targets. Ultimately we believe a better educated community will better address it’s sustainable health for future generations.
