What Business Can Do To Help

In the Kids Companies and Creeks manual under the section Companies Leading by Example (page 15 onward), there is a wealth of information on how business and industry can hop in and help. The document covers waste water, air quality, renovation and design, recycling, control and reduction of volatile liquids as well as various case studies. You can download the PDF file of the KCC Manual, but the file is large and will take approximately 2 minutes to receive on a fast modem. The free Acrobat Reader enables you to read PDF files.
