Welcome to the April issue of RNN GreenZine. What better time to express our gratitude for everything green than Earth Day? This year’s Earth Day campaign – Climate and Environmental Literacy – showcases the importance of taking a proactive approach to saving our planet and this includes education. Fortunately, there is a plethora of champions devoting their lives to sharing their infinite industry wisdom and putting their knowledge to work in the interest of sustainability. Once we become more aware of how our behavior – both personally and professionally – may harm the environment, we’re in a better position to change these patterns. Climate and environmental literacy is crucial to future generations – and there’s no time to waste.
This month, we caught up with Michael Green, Executive Director of the Climate Action Business Association (CABA), who is committed to guiding small businesses in their efforts to develop effective strategies to combat climate change. By sharing his vast industry knowledge, Michael is empowering small businesses with tools to become the leaders in sustainability. At CABA, every day is EARTH DAY! And, our Green in the City column takes a lighthearted look at how happiness comes from within – and can’t be bought. We also spotlight TOMRA’s worthy charity initiative to raise money for the non-profit organization called Keep America Beautiful. A TOMRA internal survey revealed that employees are eager to partake in company-wide fundraisers in addition to local initiatives. It’s individuals like those who work at TOMRA who are paying it forward and willing to do whatever it takes to realize a healthy future for our planet.
