We had the pleasure to participate in a Morning Business Hour featuring Mayor of Gary, IN Karen Freeman-Wilson. Thank you Andrew Kyres, VP, at First Financial Bank for hosting this awesome coffee, business and networking hour! What an interesting lady Mayor Freeman-Wilson is! Karen has been mayor to her hometown of Gary, Indiana since January 2012. Mayor Freeman-Wilson is the first female to lead the “Steel City” and the first African-American female mayor in the state of Indiana. She has served the public for most of her professional life. She was previously the Indiana Attorney General, Director of Indiana Civil Rights Commission and the presiding judge of the Gary City Court. She is also a leader in the national drug court movement having served as the CEO of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals and Executive Director of the National Drug Court Institute. She is a very impressive, accomplished and super smart lady!
It’s the right thing to do. It feels good. It’s morally responsible. It secures our future. It sells. However, the phrase is also trendy, ambiguous, a possible marketing ploy, and often misused. Green technology has come a long way, and has also just begun. Happy #EarthDay
During the race to go green, we have seen great success and innovation, but in some cases, a compromise in product quality. Sometimes what helps Mother Earth in one way completely wrongs her in another.
What is the right balance between being environmentally responsible, competitive, and having the best product on the market?
We at Level Rite Concrete understand. We, like you, have very high standards. We want to have our cake and eat it too. We want to provide the highest quality products on the market that are also genuinely environmentally responsible. We don’t just want to stick a “green” label on the packaging in order to stay current with the trend.
Level Rite Concrete has found the answer (well, actually two answers): RECYCLED AND RENEWABLE.
The foam we use contains recycled material. It’s because we are extremely proud to be a provider of polyurethane foam used for concrete lifting that uses recycled material (patent pending). Our pride comes from the fact that not only does the recycled content provide a truly “green” aspect to the material, but it also takes the quality of the product to the next level. It’s really a win-win.
I know what you’re thinking. “How can adding ‘junk’ foam to this product really make it better?” To answer this, let us break it down (no pun intended).
