Leaves falling, jack-o-lanterns still aglow, and a seemingly endless flow of candy all point to one thing: Halloween’s still fresh in our minds. For some, it’s all fun, games, and super-hero costumes. For others though, it’s not about the innocent charm of changing seasons, glowing lights, and sweets galore; some people thrive on seeking and dishing out doses of fright.

It’s Thanksgiving week here in the US, so we’re focusing on what we’re thankful for around Apto HQ: family, friends, food, and you. You make what we do possible, and together we’re changing the face of environmental responsibility and security.

Happy National Recycling Week! Due to the efforts of Planet Ark, Australia has been celebrating National Recycling week since 1996. Here in the States, we’re celebrating America Recycles Day on November 15. And while we’re celebrating events, we want to say thank you to all the veterans who have and are serving this country. Thank you for your sacrifice. We’re working hard to keep this country that you protect beautiful.
