Earth Day 2021 and our Eco-Friendly Practices

| April 22, 2021

Earth Day 2021 is a reminder to reflect on our businesses practices to see if we're doing all we can to help the environment. We believe what we do individually has a collective impact on sustaining our communities. Here's some things we've put into place at Heist Insurance Agency, and we'd love to hear some of your ideas and practices too.

  1. All lighting has been changed to LED lighting in our 5 offices.
  2. Paper products in the break room have been replaced with dishes, glasses, and silverware.
  3. The use of digital faxing, filing and mail distribution enables streamlined processing and a virtually paperless work environment. This has been especially important the past year with all employees able to work remotely without missing a beat.
  4. Recycle bins are used in each office and a shredding truck hired to dispose of paper safely and responsibly.
  5. Telecommuting by employees allows us to save energy in our offices.
  6. Reduced commuter traffic by utilizing video conferencing for business meetings; including industry conferences and insurance discussions and reviews with our customers.

These are a few of the changes we have made to make our business eco-friendlier. The benefits extend beyond saving money; we are doing our part to save the environment. Remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!
