Go Green for The Holidays!

October 20, 2008

Have you thought about how sustainable giving could Greenify your business' holiday season?  Going green for the season means more than just putting up a tree. (We'll talk about that soon enough!)   But first let's consider your annual corporate gift giving?  If you plan now, there are new and better ways to give back to the environment. 
For instance, Renewable Choice gives you the opportunity to invest and promote projects to Go Green.  "Choice Bundles" are unique gifts that invest in wind power development and other forms of carbon dioxide reduction projects that "offset" to help leave the planet a little cleaner and greener for everyone.

At $25 per individual / $55 per family gift, they offset the price of home electricity, auto and flight emissions, even the cost of charging laptops and cell phones.

Another option for the more cost conscious among us are environmentally friendly shopping bags.  You can have them printed up by any of various companies with your company's logo or holiday greetings or both. 

Both of those gifts will need to be ordered well in advance, so start now.  But if you're going to need last minute Greenification gifts, we recommend memberships to any of the environmental groups we've known for years such as…

www.audobon.org (your donation can "go to the Birds!")

www.nature.org (protecting nature. preserving life)

www.sierraclub.org  (Outings with a cause!)

www.arborday.org  (your donation plants trees!)

www.worldwildlife.org  (concern for animals)

www.edf.org (The environmental defense fund)


Joining these groups and help us all have a green holiday season for years to come.   And if you haven't already, give yourself a great gift by joining the Green Business Alliance and help Greenify your office or home for years to come.


Earth Day Resolution #4 – Plant Trees

April 4, 2008

April showers bring May flowers. April showers could also bring May trees! The 30 days that take place between March 31st and May 1st, commonly known as April, could just as easily be referred to as Go Green month. April starts by fooling us and quickly moves to celebrations for Earth Hour, Earth Day and Arbor Day to name a few. We have talked about Earth Hour and Earth Day in the Green Business Alliance Blog. We have not yet discussed Arbor Day which will take place on April 25th this year.

According to the Arbor Day Foundation’s home page, Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. It was founded by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska in 1872. National Arbor Day is celebrated each year on the last Friday in April.

This year, in honor of Arbor Day and Earth Day make a plan with your family members to Go Green and plant trees periodically throughout the year. Trees not only beautify an area, but they also add oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide, provide a natural cooling mechanism, and, in many cases, increase property values.

Resolve to be a tree planter. It is a wholesome, outdoor family project which has lasting benefits for the environment and your health.
