Earth Day 2020

April 22 2020
Earth Day has become more than a day for VistaTek and SelfEco. It has become daily lifestyle. We continue to in-house compost, recycle and continue to reduce our waste. Employees are using reusable ceramic coffee mugs, bringing reusable packaging from home and we are adding a continuous improvement fund from the money we get back from recycling our aluminum, steel and plastics.

The Crystal Ball

November 19 2019
My crystal ball was not seeing that 4th quarter of last year, we all would hate plastic straws. From the articles that I read, the straws were the reason we had unrest in the Middle East, immigration issues on our borders and why Lebron and the Lakers didn’t make it to the NBA Playoffs. Without straws, we would have had world peace.

As SelfEco continues to grow, we are reminded the importance our two product lines have as they help combat the plastic pandemic disrupting oceans and landscapes around the world.
