With a nationwide hose ban and water restrictions in designated areas, people are concerned that they may be left with no water whatsoever. The restrictions and bans include

  • Watering a garden
  • Cleaning a private motor-vehicle using a domestic hosepipe
  • Cleaning a private leisure boat using a hosepipe
  • Filling or maintaining a domestic swimming or paddling pool
  • Filling or maintaining a domestic pond using a hosepipe - excluding fish ponds
  • Filling or maintaining a domestic ornamental fountain 
  • Use of water for filling or replenishing an artificial pond, lake or similar application - - excluding fish ponds.

 

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....

The Last Straw

Posted in Category(ies):  Industry News

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...

Latte Levy Scrapped

Posted in Category(ies):  Industry News

Latte Levy Stopped

The Latte Levy was to be introduced this year by Environment Minister Dennis Naughton as a means to reduce plastic waste and coffee cups  going to landfill. This has now come to a halt as he believes many retailers are now introducing compostable cups. The 15 cent levy was to incentivise customers to use reusable cups as well as avert 250,000 cups A DAY! from landfill. Some retailers have already initiated their own incentives for customers i.e. reduced prices for reusable cups or free coffee if consumers purchase their own brand reusable coffee cups. Retailers are  also offering compostable or recyclable coffee cups but the likeliness of customers know which is which is highly unlikely.

Shop & Drop...no more plastic

Posted in Category(ies):  Industry News

Organised by the 'sick of plastic campaign', people are being encouraged to leave the excess plastic packaging (very politely) after payment at the cashier till. Many shops are being informed of this campaign but if your local shop or retailer doesnt know be sure to give them the heads up! There has already been a big response with the media but still it is the power of the people who must make the change. The irish government is moving at a snails pace in comparison to some of it's european neighbours to reduce/eliminate single use or non recyclable materials. With a bit of knowledge and elbow grease recycling and reducing your waste can help the environment as well as your bin charges dramatically. To help distinguish what plastics can and cannot be recycled, www.recyclinglistireland.ie is here to do so. Unfortuntaly, a lot of the plastic that our fresh fruit and veg is concealed in cannot be recycled. Inevitably, it is put into the wrong bin which then takes up more time to separate from the recyclable material. It seems to be a lose-lose situation for us, the consumer, and so a solution would be is to be rid of it altogether. 

Sweden is a prime example of...
