•Have you ever gone to a bakery, deli, or restaurant and provided your own reusable container? This concept, while new to some, is probably one of the most eco-friendly steps you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint and protecting the environment. 🌎
•It is estimated that New York City alone produces 1.1 million pounds of plastic straws, cutlery, plates, bowls, cups, and trays annually. 😲
•But as of last week, Mayor Bill DeBlasio implemented an executive order to ban single use plastics, which will reduce the purchase of single-use plastics by city agencies by 95% 👍🏼
•So next time you want to pick up some sweets from @bywoops bring your own tupperware container! Reduce your carbon footprint with every meal!
•Did you know that Americans throw away 58 billion disposable cups 🥤every year? That is nearly 12% of the total number of plastic cups disposed of worldwide. ~

During an recent termite inspection, a customer called stating she had two termite swarms in the month of April until she finally contacted our office. In the video you’ll see a old termite tube hanging from the ceiling in one of her basement closets. We then removed one of the ceiling tiles to inspect one of the nearby beams. On the beam, we discovered more termite tubes indicating our customer had a termite infestation.
When’s the last time you had your home inspected? 🏠
