Stonybrook Water Joins Forces With Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network To Help Save Sea Turtles
Stonybrook Water has a strong corporate commitment to educate consumers on the impacts of plastics pollution on the marine environment. According to President and CEO Tim Brown, "At Stonybrook, we understand our role in protecting the environment. We procure materials responsibly in partnership with our suppliers. Our products are designed and built to minimize the environmental footprint, while maximizing both energy efficiency and durability. We foster an internal culture where sustainability is the basis for ongoing employee education, engagement and pride." Corporate sustainability efforts at Stonybrook include helping people in less developed countries improve their quality of life by supporting clean drinking water, sanitation facilities and health and hygiene education programs.
"Support from companies like Stonybrook Water allows us to continue our work to put best practices in place in areas where water quality and quantity are ongoing issues," said WFEN Executive Director and Co-founder Julie Stein. "Sea Turtle Friendly™ tourism, for example, recognizes resorts that are doing an exemplary job to reduce threats and protect critical habitat like nesting beaches for sea turtles and litter-free coastlines for human communities. This is especially important where tourism and the regional economy are dependent on thriving populations of marine wildlife and healthy marine ecosystems. Thanks to Stonybrook Water we are able to scale up this important work."
