Why We Love Working in the Environmental Field

Wind Power Environmental Engineering

To us, working in the environmental field every day is an honor. It allows us to sit down at our desks each morning knowing there is a bigger purpose behind our work. While we may not be changing the entire planet or solving major world problems, each step we take as environmental recruiters can help to make the world a better place, one person at a time. To know we are a part of that is more than we could ever ask for.

The environmental field is constantly changing, and a large part of our job is to stay up-to-date on the news, trends, and projects that are happening within our arena. While there is always a little bit of bad mixed in with the good, it is a pleasure each morning to read about the positive direction that the environmental industry is moving in. Whether it is a new compliance regulation being implemented or the hard working individual at an environmental consulting firm being honored for their innovative work, there is always something positive happening to counteract the negative.

During this presidential election year, climate change and the future of our planet have been bigger players than ever before. The issues facing the environment are being brought to light after many years in the shadows, and as long time players in this industry, we know that public awareness is the first step to change. Like anything, it’s the small details that lead to bigger things. To be able to create a better world for future generations, we must continue to monitor our infrastructure. The best way we know to do this is by placing top talent to be a part of these projects. When we set out to search for candidates to engineer the future of our society, we seek the best of the best.

Our world will constantly be evolving. Buildings, bridges, and parks will never stop being built in countries all across our planet, but by making sure that the top project managers and environmental engineers, geologists and biologists, compliance specialists and remedial design engineers, are the people calling the shots, we are doing our best at making the world a better, safer, and cleaner place, one person and one project at a time.

How to Celebrate Earth Day 2016


This Friday, April 22nd, marks the 46th observance of Earth Day. While it is vitally important to be mindful of our environment year-round, we love how Earth Day gives us extra reason to redirect our usually busy focus to Mother Earth and how we can better treat her.

While many communities and organizations may be putting on some sort of festivities or ceremonies in honor of Earth Day, most do not. So if you’re like us and want to celebrate our planet for all it deserves, here’s a list of ways to honor our planet this Friday (and every day!).

  • Start composting.
  • Plant a tree or a vegetable garden.
  • Commute by foot or bike when you can (ie. if you live in a metro area). If not, carpool or take advantage of public transportation.
  • Support your local farms.
  • Shut off the lights when you leave the room.
  • Limit your paper trail.
  • Open the windows and turn off the air conditioning.
  • Collect rainwater to water your plants.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Turn off the television and go take a walk.
  • Update your lightbulbs.
  • Make a recycling plan.
  • Use Earth-friendly cleaning products or make your own.
  • Invest in a reusable coffee mug.
  • Fix those leaky faucets.
  • Give up bottled water.
  • Organize a community clean-up or plant a community garden.

We challenge you to try to continue the Earth Day celebrations past this Friday! Transition one or two or more of these practices into everyday life. Go green in whatever little way you can. It can make a big difference, not to mention save you a couple of dollars, too!
