If you have been thinking about going green and adopting an eco-friendlier lifestyle, this is the perfect time to start making those changes.

Did you know that the entire month of April is dedicated to celebrating Planet Earth?  In 1970, Earth Day was established in the United States to bring focus and attention to the environmental movement and would be recognized annually on April 22nd.  By 1990, Earth Day became a worldwide holiday which gave way to Earth Week and eventually Earth Month.  Now, during the month of April, people from around the world observe, perform and acknowledge different ways to take care of and preserve our precious planet.

Over the last few years, Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing has also taken the proper steps and actions to do our part to help the environment and adopt a greener lifestyle.  Our crew members are lead-safe EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified.  Many of the products we offer are also registered with the EPA, making our products safe for the environment.  Also, our sump pumps use less electricity than a 40-watt light bulb! Besides our products, all our offices use Iron Mountain Shredding services which offer a certified recycling program!

If you have been thinking about going green and adopting an eco-friendlier lifestyle, this is the perfect time to start making those changes.  Since we love our planet so much at Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing, we want to make sure you know how you can make a difference in the environment and in the communities, we serve!
