The week of July 13, 2015 is green week at EDR! In an initiative kicked off by our parent company, DMGT, all companies within the DMGT family are participating in a week of activities that encourage staff to be more environmentally conscious. Employees will get a chance to hear from Eco-Friendly organizations and take part in fun and green initiatives to raise awareness about sustainability and our environment throughout the week.
We kicked off our Green Week with the Polar Bear Pass. Employees pledge to donate $10 or more or participate in a green activity and then nominate someone else. Donations go to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to Adopt a Polar Bear. So far, we’ve already raised over $2,500 and have even started to pass to our colleagues at our sister companies.
Other green initiatives throughout the week include an Upcylcing workshop, a Farm Share, Habitat for Humanity Day where EDR employees are volunteering to help build a home for a family, and a clothing donation for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. The week wraps up with a “Green Awards” ceremony at EDR headquarters.
We hope that Green Week encourages our team to employ green initiatives all year long!
