We were very lucky to have our wonderful staff participate in Feel Good Week with Pieta House.
'The nationwide festival of wellness, mindfulness, active, social, fun and funky events designed to help you find the feeling that reminds you how good you can feel – and to use that feeling to do some good and raise some vital funds for Pieta House too.'
Our staff and Co. walked 5km through the beautiful Mullaghmeen Forest , Co. Westmeath on the 21st October . They raised €550 it was donated to the cause.
We are very proud our staff and think they deserve a pat on the back! Well done folks!

It seems people are becoming more and more aware of the environment. Reusable products, turning off lights when not needed and even leaving the car at home and cycling to work instead are slowly becoming the norm. Although, the majority of people are unaware of clothes pollution and the massive tole it takes on our envirmonment! Believe it or not, fashion is the second most polluting industry, after oil, in the world. The fashion industry produces more than 100 Billion garments every year, and it is simply not sustainable for our planet to keep up.
Why is this? It is because of how they are made and what they are made of. Cotton is the biggest culprit as half of the clothes produced are made from it. Jeans are the most common item bought by the consumer with an average of 6-8 jeans per person. What is unknown to most consumers is that it takes a staggering 1,500 gallons of water to produce one pair of

These are all completely understandable as everyone should put priorities first. We at Allied have started taking action and refrained from washing our trucks and vehicles. Our employees have also been informed about reducing water in the work place and to be responsible. Here are some ways that you can reduce your household consumption.
1. Reduce the Shower time, try set timers for each family member to reduce their time. Low water shower heads reduce the water while keeping the power can be bought in any hardware or online.
2. If you have an older toilet without 'dual flush' a handy tip to reduce water is to , place a filled plastic or glass bottle in the cistern. This reduces the water flowing back into the toilet.
3. Only wash full loads or dishwashers. *Please fill....
These days it is becoming a lot more prevalent that single use plastic is no longer wanted in our lives. With documentaries such as David Attenborough's 'Blue Planet 2' and Leonardo Dicaprio's 'Climate Change', they are certainly making quite the impression on a large scale. They certainly pull on the heart strings by demonstrating how our negligence, and ignorance, has such a negative impact on our environment. Wildlife and Marine life habitats are being wiped out or destroyed because of our consumers 'demand' for plastic and other disposable materials. It is also said that the oceans will have nothing left but floating islands of plastic and refuse in 40 years. Is that really fair for our future generations?
One step at a time makes all the difference, not to be repetitive but, reusable items such as coffee cups and water bottles are here to stay for the people who have made the switch. There are so many plastic free alternatives toothbrushes, cotton buds and also the straw.
A small straw may not seem like a lot, when its usage is added up, plastic straws create a big problem for the environment.
And, with the USA using 500 million...
