Earth Day 2021: Restore Our Earth

How are YOU helping? For 50 years, the Earth Day movement has inspired us to adopt more sustainable ways of living and doing business. On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day event was organized to draw attention to the effects of the previous 150 years of industrial and technological advancement. Air and water pollution from “oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways” had taken a serious toll on human health.

The movement was successful at bringing awareness to the need for change in the way we were stewarding the planet. As a result, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was established, and new legislation was passed: the National Environmental Education Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.

Whatever your personal preferences, campaigns such as a Billion Acts of Green, Foodprints for the Future, The Great Global Cleanup, Artists for the Earth, Athletes for the Earth, Regenerative Agriculture, and Women and the Green Economy (WAGE), encourage citizens around the world to take action in the fight for a healthier Earth. These campaigns are but a sampling of the diversity in opportunities available to those who recognize the importance of preserving the planet for future generations.

For 2021, EARTHDAY.ORG partners with the National League of Cities and ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, to take the issue of climate change to a grass roots level by working with local governments. Through this partnership, efforts are being advanced to encourage cities to work toward significantly reducing carbon and net zero emissions, according to Terra Pascarosa, National Campaign Director, EARTHDAY.ORG.

Recycling is one of the most effective ways to control the impact of industry on the sustainability of the Earth. At DeltaTrak, we’re doing our part through the GoGreen Recycling Program. Why recycle? It reduces the amount of trash in landfills by 35%. The need for raw materials is lower, which preserves natural resources and reduces pollution. Energy is conserved because there is less manufacturing. More than 700,000 jobs are supported each year through various recycling activities. For more information on DeltaTrak’s GoGreen Recycling Program, contact your dedicated account manager or call 1-800-962-6776.

Check out the suggestions below for ideas on how you can be a good steward of Mother Earth.

  • DeltaTrak’s Real Time Loggers have been a game changer for our trucking program. Having the ability to monitor temperature while trucks are in transit has given us peace of mind knowing the quality of our product has not been compromised. The alert notifications, light sensors, and GPS tracking are just some of the great features that have allowed us to make pro active decisions that have strengthened the integrity of our product. The FlashTrak Cloud Service is easy to use and is a great tool to compare and analyze data. The FlashTrak App is super convenient as well. We have used other reliable DeltaTrak products for many years and we were excited to see these added to their lineup!

  • When it comes to making sense of data (in the supply chain) we have found a partner in DeltaTrak. The fact that I could recharge the real-time logger and the dual batteries made a lot of sense to me. It was user friendly and easy to use. With the uncertainty and complexity of today's supply chain, having an effective chain of custody system is not only a clever idea, but a requirement for effective handling of perishable goods.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend DeltaTrak to your company. During these times of crisis, we were fortunate to work with DeltaTrak to source top of the line Non-Contact forehead thermometers and PPE supplies at a real market price.

    As a healthcare organization, we are a common target for price gouging and abusive practices from several vendors. With DeltaTrak, we found a partner that understands our needs and who always provide world class customer service.

  • Dear Fred, I would like express my appreciation for the good business relationship we have had during 2018. The excellent work of Mr. Jorge Hurtado has given me the confidence to continue maintaining our commercial relationship with the DeltaTrak brand.

    Mr. Jorge Hurtado's customer service efforts are outstanding, especially in finding solutions to the challenges that may arise in the commercial process. In my opinion Mr. Hurtado's professionalism is a model for any company, especially when the client is thousands of kilometers away from Modesto, CA. I look forward to strengthening our successful relationship into 2019.

  • Thank you Juan Solorzano for paying us a business call 4 years ago. The DeltaTrak brand is the majority of our Temp Recorder business. ALL our Walmart/Sam's orders carry the DeltaTrak Temp recorders for the past 4 years without a single problem with any Walmart DC. When you have a load of 18 different orders on a single truck and temp recorders on each order, WOW what a savings your DeltaTrak brand has save us. Yes, Walmart has accepted the DeltaTrak Model with no problems.

  • This upcoming fall will mark our 4th full season using DeltaTrak recorders. They are competitively priced and the customer service is always exceptional. We have never had a customer issue with one of their units and we don’t expect to. We use a wide range of DeltaTrak products and we have been more than happy with every one of them.
