Harmen van Kamp
Director at Global Air Cylinder Wheels
Global Air Cylinder Wheels—a Phoenix-based company—is responsible for quite literally reinventing the wheel via a revolutionary new design that helps to replace the pollutive Off-the-Road (OTR) rubber mining tires, save up to 60 percent in costs and reduce excess waste via a 100 percent recyclable make.
What does it mean to you to be an eco trendsetter? It’s a great honor but also comes with a great responsibility. We have this vision to contribute to the world in a positive way, but it does come at a [high] price at times. However, this is what we want for the next generations.
Best advice for how to be more sustainable in our day-to-day lives? Think twice before you throw things out. The world must learn to repair, reuse and recycle again.
Why is it so important to be more eco-minded in our work? Work environments are a large part of your life. Particularly at work, you can spread the [eco] mindset to other families and businesses, of course.
What impact do you most hope to leave on your community and the world? Take care of the environment, even on the smallest scale. Be mindful of the resources you have access to and respect nature.
