I hope the first quarter of 2018 has been prosperous and productive! We have been in planning mode for the many events coming up in the next few months. Please make sure your calendar is marked for the Annual Meeting and Environmental Stewardship Awards on April 17 and the 18th Annual Golf Tournament on May 4. These two events, as well as our Membership Breakfast, are outlined in this month’s newsletter.
At our last PEP Membership Breakfast, we heard an interesting presentation regarding the benefits of Bioremediation from Bionetix International, Inc. I know some PEP members already use these types of “bugs” in your wastewater treatment. I would love to hear from you as to how you are utilizing, or could potentially benefit from utilizing this organic solution for water, as well as other waste issues. Take a moment to read this month’s newsletter and learn more.
I would like to personally invite you to get involved in the MLK Day of Service, which PEP is sponsoring and will be held on Saturday, January 13. You can register and see more information in the attached newsletter. We all are committed to being good environmental stewards, and this event is a great opportunity to showcase those efforts. In keeping with the spirit of stewardship, PEP would like to continue recognizing the many member organizations that make considerable environmental impacts in the community.

Every business searches for efficiencies to reduce costs and increase profits. What if these efficiencies can also benefit the environment?
