Magna-Tel Inc. Grows Community Garden
Cape Girardeau, Missouri-based Magna-Tel Inc. announced it has implemented several initiatives to help make its business location more environmentally friendly in 2008.
In May of this year, Magna-Tel and its employees started the Magna-Tel community garden. Magna-Tel provided dirt, seeds, plants and other necessary supplies. Magna-Tel employees donated their time tilling the land, planting, weeding, watering and picking. Magna-Tel hopes to add fruit trees near the garden later this year. To protect the plants from insects, a homemade organic insecticidal soap spray, which is 100 percent environmentally friendly, is used when needed.
In addition, Magna-Tel has an energy task force that continually works on ways for Magna-Tel to save energy, including turning off lights in offices and common areas when not in use, replacing light bulbs with more energy efficient bulbs and recycling).
