An up-front savings to the environment and a long-term savings to your bottom line. A change for 2013.
It might be tough to switch our thinking, but what if (considering it is the new year) we made purchase decisions based on long-term savings? No coupons to redeem, no back-end rewards, no rebate programs to file for and no strings attached. Sounds like a simpler purchase process and a wise investment that will be cost-effective over time. Need an up-front savings? The environment for one. Diverting food waste to an on-site digester that transports food waste through the sewer system for disposal as opposed to the truck-bound landfills is a great savings. Need another? The message you send to your customers. A long term investment reinforces the commitment you are making to your business, the environment, and to your customers. It lets them know that you will be around, long-term, to see the savings.
The new year is the best time to make changes.
