Abt celebrated Earth Day on Sunday; it was quite a kick off to Earth Week.
We had so many Earth Friendly activities. Our Glenview neighbors at the Grove brought some cool snakes and turtles for everyone to get to know. Com Ed told us about their environmentally friendly programs. Dan from Garvy’s Office Supplies showed us all sorts of recycled office products. Abt gave tours of the recycling center and had Earth Day treats like granola and oatmeal raisin cookies. Kids who visited got to make sun catchers and mouse pads from recycled materials.
Abt’s goal is to make everyday Earth Day, according to Abt’s President Mike Abt. “Our goal is to have no waste, and we are close,” said Mike. “It’s a core value of the company and is demonstrated in everything we do.”
So on the heels of the Energy Star rebate program and Earth Day 2010, make sure you do your part to make this world a better place. Take a look at http://www.abt.com/green/ for information on how Abt works toward making a small carbon footprint.
