World Environment Day is June 5th

The theme of World Environment Day for 2021 is: Ecosystem Restoration
We often talk about ecosystems and restoration but do we really know what it implies and entails and what one can do for it locally?
Some helpful points about ecosystem restoration:
- Ecosystem restoration implies "assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed".
- It also includes conservation of the ecosystems that are fragile or still intact.
- The ecosystem can be restored in many ways. Planting trees is one of the easiest and best ways of caring for the environment.
- People also need to eliminate pressures on the environment.
- Urban and rural landscapes have different ways to adapt and restore ecosystems.
Our local area has several different parks created to protect various marshlands and bird/wildlife sanctuaries.
There are many ways we can help with ecosystem restoration here at home. Simply not littering/picking up after yourself, staying on marked trails in local parks/hiking areas and not contaminating groundwater are some easy things most of us do naturally.

A Letter from a Happy Client
Thanks to Natalie for this wonderful letter. We are glad she had such a great experience.
This is a letter of recommendation for SERVPRO of White Plains & New Rochelle, who we employed to mitigate mold at our Townhouse located in Pelham, NY.
In the past, I had owned several properties and have dealt with multiple contractors which in fact did bring me a lot of grief. Lack of timely completion, lack of control over subcontractors and a lack of general all around ownership of the job was something I had come to expect as the norm.
In December 2015, we had a major flood in our Townhouse from a broken pipe in a bathroom located on a third floor. It took us over 6 months to negotiate overall damage price with the Insurance provider due to damage quote estimate difference, among other difficulties.
After many months of detailed research, we were lucky to find ServePro of White Plains & New Rochelle who did a great deal to change our views when it comes to working with a Mitigation company.
Antoinette from ServePro worked diligently to remove the multiple loose ends and questions that caused confusion, cost overruns and delays with the Insurance provider. She is extremely knowledgeable, very professional, has excellent communication skills and keeps everyone informed of all aspects of the project.
The SERVPRO Team utilized excellent project management skills to problem solve any issue that arose during the project. They were very detail oriented, focused on keeping the project on schedule and on budget. I find them to be very honest and straightforward on all issues. They are efficient, work hard to keep the project in-line and are excellent in communication. This was a great experience for us to work with such a professional group of contractors!
I would highly recommend Serve Pro of White Plains & New Rochelle to anyone who wishes to undergo a mitigation project with as little anguish as possible.
