Simple Green Employees Aim To Be Greener
The Simple Green family believes in community and striving toward greener living every day. As a family, we participate in numerous neighborhood clean-ups each year, and we all take measures to be greener at home and at work.
Last year, we challenged our staff even further with a personal eco-challenge. For one year, all Simple Green employees made conscious, daily effort toward a greener lifestyle - some rode their bicycles to work, some changed out landscaping to be more drought-tolerant, some started recycling programs at home, some did volunteer work in their communities, and some replaced old energy-consuming appliances - the results have been fantastic.
Collectively, the Simple Green family has significantly reduced energy usage (10,000 kilowatts saved), reduced waste (15,000 plastic and glass bottles recycled), reduced water consumption (150,000 gallons saved), committed volunteer hours (1500 volunteer hours donated) and reduced carbon-producing actions like driving a car (2,000 gallons fuel saved). Being a good corporate citizen starts with just being a good citizen. At Simple Green, we do both!
