Being green is a year-round commitment at Abt. From our on-site recycling center to energy-efficient technology throughout the store, we take pride in doing our part to keep the planet a little cleaner. So, Earth Week is an extra special celebration for us, and we kicked it off on Sunday with a day of fun and educational activities with the help of some friends. All week long we’ll be exploring ways that we can all minimize our environmental impact , but for now here’s a quick look at the weekend’s fun.
The Yellow Tractor Project showed how a simple garden can provide you with healthy, inexpensive foods.
Our neighbors at The Grove National Historic Landmark brought over some animal friends, including this rat snake.
The Glenview Natural Resources Commission educated customers on the wealth of natural resources in Glenview, and how to take care of them.
Earth Day-themed reading materials were available courtesy of the Glenview Public Library.
Kids had the opportunity to decorate their own environmentally-friendly tote bags.
The Recycling Center was opened for tours and some of our alternative-fueled trucks were on display.
