NOSHOK Supports The Cleveland Pregnancy Center
NOSHOK's Information Systems Manager Adam Hershey, and International Accounts Manager David Vargas taught a Basic Budgeting class for the Cleveland Pregnancy Center clients during the final quarter of 2016. In this class, they provided basic education on how to develop and follow a budget while using various money saving techniques.
NOSHOK will also be donating two laptop computers and two desktop computers to the Center. The computers will be used by the Center staff as well as the clients for educational purposes. NOSHOK’s IT Department will be reformatting and updating the computers.
On Thursday, February 16th, a volunteer’s meeting was held to see how NOSHOK can offer further support in 2017.

NOSHOK’s Green Initiatives
In 2016, NOSHOK saved 251 trees, 103,530 gallons of water, 44 cubic yards of landfill space, 30 barrels of oil, and 60,639 kilowatt hours of electricity by recycling paper, carboard, plastic, bottles and cans.
In 2015, NOSHOK saved 317 trees, 130,648 gallons of water, 56 cubic yards of landfill space, 37 barrels of oil and 76,522 kilowatt hours of electricity by recycling paper and cardboard.
Since the inception of our recycling program in 2012, NOSHOK saved a total of 1,759 trees, 724,413 gallons of water, 310 cubic yards of landfill space, 207 barrels of oil and 424,299 kilowatt hours of electricity by recycling paper and cardboard.
Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity — enough energy to power the average American home for five months. (EPA, 2008). Recycling paper instead of making it from new material generates 74 percent less air pollution and uses 50 percent less water. (EPA, 2008). Producing recycled paper requires about 60 percent of the energy used to make paper from virgin wood pulp. (EPA, 2008).
