Every day there’s a reason to celebrate. There are big ones and small ones. Official celebrations and casual observances.
Today’s celebration is all about the environment as we mark the 39th Earth Day.
As more companies find it’s good business to adopt sustainable practices, Earth Day has come to be a day of celebration at work, too.
Take, for example, clothier Gap Inc, which has activities throughout the week to mark Earth Day. With the theme, “What is your Re:Solution?” Events at the company include a Green Festival and Take a Child to Work Day.
The Re:Solution campaign is part of the San Francisco-based company’s overall environmental commitment, according to the company which notes, “we believe that reducing our impact on the environment can also result in positive business benefits.”
Writing in Grist.com this week, Len Sauers of Procter & Gamble urges companies to celebrate Earth Day with employees, communities, and leading companies what green accomplishments achieved this year with an eye toward planning for the future.
“From a corporate perspective, we are faced with many opportunities to make a tremendous difference. But I would challenge that today’s mission of ‘going green’ is not a bandwagon, it’s a journey. And the deliverables need to not only be real, but long-lasting and sustainable in and of themselves,” writes Sauers, a 23-year P&G vet with a doctorate in toxicology who now leads the company’s sustainability efforts.
Call it food (think salad greens) for thought.
