Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of summer. Grills are lit, patios are prepared, garden plants are planted, parades, watching the Indy 500, flags and a soft thank you for service to our country being said.
Memorial Day is about gratitude. It is about remembering fallen soldiers who died risking their lives for our country, the United States of America. It is about honoring those who protect and serve our great nation. Those who put aside their own safety for our safety. They put aside their own comfort so that we can live in comfort. They lay down their lives for the principles and values of the United States of America. We are so THANKFUL for their service.
We had the unparalleled experience of assisting Troop 199 in Fishers, Indiana, on Flags Out Day which is the Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend. The scouts and their families placed flags on every military grave at the local cemetery, pausing at the foot of the grave to salute the fallen soldier. This moving and hugely important event creates and centers these young scouts to the sacrifice that these soldiers have made, for them, for their families, their communities, their cities, their states and for their country. It is an extremely moving event to see the the sea of flags that grace the cemetery after the scouts have finished placing flags.
Truly our heroes are those who unselfishly serve for us. And we heartedly thank you for your service.
Shortly, MSP Seals will be replacing two of its fleet vehicles with full electric vehicles. While there is an operating cost savings, this is being done primarily for its impact on emissions and the environment.
This change will reduce:
Crude oil consumption by approx. 130 barrels per year
Gasoline consumption by approx. 2,500 gallons per year
Reduce our carbon footprint by approx. 22 tons of CO2 per year
We look forward to this move and will continue to evaluate more environmental savings.
Soup Kitchens have long been a part of the American communities. They serve hot meals to the homeless and hungry. Businesses, churches and other groups step up to support those who need extra help. Like many care projects, soup kitchens are affected by economic downturns and rising costs. As we globally face the effects of COVID-19, let’s not forget the non-profit soup kitchens and food pantries that rely on donations and support. Their needs and expenses do not go away, but they are increasing. They are hurting and need our community of businesses and other groups to rally behind them in support. Show your support of their efforts to feed the hungry and donate to your local food pantry or soup kitchen today.
In an effort to be more energy efficient and consciously aware of the impact of fluorescent lighting. MSP reviewed a full office and warehouse change to LED lighting to be more energy efficient and this year made our switch to LED lighting in all fixtures.
We found that LED lighting can use 50 to 60% less electricity than the traditional fluorescent bulbs. LED can also increase the lifespan of bulbs in fixtures by 2 to 3 times. LED also has increased the lighting in the warehouse, improving quality in picking parts.
The common four foot fluorescent tube has a lifespan of around 20,000 hours. The LED replacement has a lifespan of around 50,000 hours.
Therefore, upgrading to LED will eliminate fluorescent bulb waste and conserve electricity, lessening our impact on the environment.

‘Being Green’ and ‘Recycling’ have become the new buzzwords of our time. ‘Being Green’ is more than just beautifying the community. Being environmentally responsible means that we make every effort to leave a minimal footprint on the environment. MSP Seals knows the importance of taking care of the community and the world where we live, that’s why MSP Seals recycles.
MSP is utilizing drawing and file maintenance to safely maintain our customer’s custom seal designs and prints and to alleviate the common and unnecessary paper trail often associated with hard copy design plan maintenance. We are looking at all areas to go paperless. Obsolete documents/files are shredded and recycled.
With community recycling programs, MSP is able to recycle paper waste and cardboard waste, making a difference in our community and being responsible with our resources.
Look for MSP Seals as we go to the option of paperless invoicing in the near future. This will benefit our recycling efforts by eliminating the paper trail typically involved in payable and receivables and share our views of being more environmentally responsible.
Remember: ‘Waste not, want not”, in your office, your community and our world.
