There are too many people out there to thank individually, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying. Thanks to the State House in Jefferson City for maintaining support for recycling across Missouri; creating an industry that brings jobs and revenue to its citizens, protects our children’s environmental future, and makes its citizens a growing part of the burgeoning “Green Economy”.
A thanks to the entire public sector of our state, including DNR, MODOT, MORCOG, the State Recycling Program, and many others, as well as the myriad organizations that actively support and utilize their services.
To cities like Maryville who support recycling and many other sustainability efforts. Despite tough economic times and increasingly limited budgets, they continue to bring “Green” to many smaller communities. I will stop with the thanking at the Solid Waste Management Districts who manage state grants for recycling… NO…
Finally, I would like to thank the Northwest Family for tirelessly contributing to our Environmental Endeavors, and the larger Northwest Missouri region. Thanks to the Staff and Faculty, and especially the students of Northwest Missouri State University. We are all in this together
Regardless of political persuasion, for millennia every human being that has successfully turned soil to produce food knows (or eventually came to understand):
- TAKE CARE OF THE SOIL
- TAKE CARE OF THE WATER
- LEAVE SOMETHING FOR YOUR CHILDREN
- GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Sustainability is really nothing new. Sensible decisions that match today’s needs with tomorrow’s.
WELCOME BACK BEARCATS! See You In a Few Days
