Do Your Part with a Metal Roof
Show You Care by Using Metal
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax
You have probably heard, read, or watched the story of The Lorax. It’s a popular Dr. Seuss book about caring for our natural resources in a way that is sustainable. In order to preserve our world for future generations, we have to be mindful of how we use what we have.
Toward the end of the book there is the quote from the Onceler, the antagonist, who has had a change of heart. He tells the small boy that it’s up to him to make things better; it’s up to the boy to care a whole awful lot.
The problem is that in the story things have gotten so bad that drastic measures are needed to repair the damage. We’re not to that point yet.
How You Can Care a Whole Awful Lot
When you read the quote, you probably have an image that in order to make things better you have to change the way you live. You have to give up driving a car, only eat local produce, dedicate your life to standing on a street corner in a robe telling people the evils of using plastic products.
Fortunately, it’s not like that.
In order to maintain an earth that will be around for future generations, all of us just have to do little things. If we each pitch in just a little, the end result is great strides for humanity. One way to do that is to use sustainable building materials.
One of the most environmentally friendly roofing materials you can use is metal. It is largely crafted from recycled materials, making it environmentally friendly to create. Unlike asphalt shingles, which require new materials and oil to produce, the metal can be made from entirely repurposed resources. No need to mine the earth, no need to ship metal ore around the world, no need to waste resources.
But it’s not just the recycled materials, it’s also the fact that a metal roof lasts essentially forever. You don’t have to keep replacing the roof. You don’t have to throw away shingles after every hail storm in Billings. Instead, you put the roof on once, and you might have to replace it in 50 or 60 years. At that point you can recycle the entire thing, and have another fully recycled roof put on.
You Just have to Care a Little Bit
There are some who have dedicated their lives to changing the world. That’s awesome, but it’s not for everyone. For the rest of us, we just have to pitch in a little bit. The end result is that our world shapes up into a much better place to live, and we don’t have the destruction seen by cutting down all the truffula trees in the world.
