SYNKD asked Naylor Taliaferro, Founder of LCR Media & Clean Cut Lawn Care Services, "What does sustainability mean to you, and how you conduct your business?" Read on to find out his comments...
Sustainability has become a buzzword in almost every industry, and the landscaping and lawncare industry is no exception. However, it is not enough to merely talk about sustainability; it requires practical action to achieve it. Education and collaboration are the keys to achieving sustainability in this industry.
In my lawncare company, for example, I believe that education and collaboration are the cornerstones of sustainability. I ensure that I am well-informed about all aspects of my company’s services and collaborate with other companies that provide services that I don’t for better understanding.
This approach not only helps my company provide high-quality and sustainable services, but also fosters a culture of sustainability within the industry. When companies work together and share their knowledge, they can develop new ideas and best practices that can benefit the entire industry.
Furthermore, educating customers about sustainable lawncare practices is crucial. The more customers are aware of the impact their actions have on the environment, the more likely they are to make sustainable choices. I understand this and actively educate my customers about sustainable lawncare practices.
In conclusion, the path to sustainability in the landscaping and lawncare industry begins with education and collaboration. By sharing knowledge and working together, companies can create a sustainable future for the industry and the planet as a whole.
