This week Gov. Sonny Perdue visited the Covington General Mills plant to congratulate the company for its efforts to reduce water consumption.
Since installing water reclamation equipment in August of 2006, the plant has recycled approximately 100 million gallons of water - cutting the location's water use in half.
We too congratulate General Mills for their concern for such a precious resource before the level 4 drought set in last summer.
More of our country's industries should begin to think of how to conserve more of the planet's resources. Not only will expending less energy and natural resources save companies money, but it will better preserve Earth for future generations.
Covington industries, follow General Mills' lead.
